Understanding Dental Veneers

Posted .

Have you thought about getting dental veneers, but were unsure what they are exactly? If so, you are not alone. Dental veneers have made strides in cosmetic dentistry thanks to the successful treatments across the world.

In a nutshell, dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells, which are bonded to the front of your teeth. These thin shells are matched to your teeth, making them hard to be noticed by others. Dental veneers do more cover the front of your teeth, they also hide flaws in your smile. Some of these flaws include:

· Cracked teeth
· Chipped teeth
· Slightly misaligned teeth
· Discolored teeth
· Gapped teeth

Because dental veneers are custom-made out of materials like porcelain or resin, they are not subject to tooth decay. However, your teeth will still need to be brushed and flossed regularly to keep the sides and back of your teeth in pristine health.
