What are veneers, anyway?
You’ve probably heard about them. Perhaps you know someone who has them or has seen someone on TV talking about them. Veneers have certainly become a very popular cosmetic dental treatment over the years. That’s because these thin, translucent shells, which we bond to the front of your teeth, can drastically alter the overall shape, length, color, and alignment of your smile.
When are dental veneers placed?
Veneers are amazingly versatile, which means that most people dealing with cosmetic dental flaws can benefit from veneers. Our dentists and their team here in Austin, TX, will examine your teeth, discuss your treatment goals and then decide whether your goals align with what veneers can offer. Veneers can address these issues:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chips and cracks
- Discolorations and severe, widespread stains
- Uneven, worn down, or malformed teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Minor crowding or overlapping of teeth
Do veneers require special treatment or care?
One of the advantages of getting dental veneers is that you can treat them just like you would your own teeth. They do not require special care; just brush and floss them regularly and maintain good oral hygiene. Of course, there are certain habits that you should avoid if you want to protect your new smile. These habits include nail-biting, eating ice or hard foods (think hard candies, which can be tempting to crunch on), and using your teeth as tools (that’s what scissors are for!).
Veneers can be an easy way to get your dream smile. If you are interested in talking with our cosmetic dentists to find out if veneers are right for you,
