Veneers are thin shells that your dentist attaches to the fronts of your teeth for cosmetic purposes. They’re designed for a perfect fit and a natural appearance. Veneers are very thin and look natural.
Veneers are meant to treat only front teeth that don’t withstand lots of pressure in your bite. If you have a damaged or cosmetically imperfect tooth toward the back of your mouth, your dentists might recommend a crown instead.
Veneers can conceal nearly any cosmetic flaw. Your Issaquah Dental Care provider might recommend veneers if you want to treat:
If you have a single tooth that stands out as less attractive than the rest, you only need one veneer to cover it. You can get multiple veneers during a single procedure if you want to improve more than one tooth.
If you take good care of them, veneers last for an average of 10 years. It’s possible for them to last for up to 20, but you can get replacements once they show signs of wear-and-tear.
To make your traditional porcelain veneers last for as long as possible, the team at Issaquah Dental Care recommends following these steps to care for them:
Veneers aren’t porous like regular tooth enamel, so they’re much less prone to stains. Your Issaquah Dental Care provider makes sure they match the color of your natural teeth, and you can get a whitening treatment beforehand for added smile enhancement.
