Why Dental Veneers?
If you’re dealing with major tooth damage or discoloration, veneers may be the best cosmetic solution to consider. Although your teeth may look broken and worn down on the outside, they could be strong and healthy on the inside. That’s an ideal case for veneers. You should ask for veneers if you are unhappy with the outer appearance of your teeth and want a smile boost.
How Will Veneers Look and Feel?
Most modern veneers are made using white porcelain material so that they will look just like your natural tooth enamel. They are wafer-thin and translucent but also very durable. Dr. Kern will only need to remove a small amount of enamel from your front teeth to make room for your veneers. Once applied, they’ll look and feel smooth and polished—no more ridges, cracks, or stubborn stains.
How Long Will Veneers Hold and Look Good?
The answer to this question depends largely on how committed you are to maintaining good dental hygiene and keeping your veneers free from plaque buildup. It’s possible for veneers to last up to 20 years or more. They will stay white and well-formed throughout that time as long as you brush often, floss, and have them checked periodically.
