Are your oral health care hygiene habits letting you down? Are your teeth healthy, but no matter how hard you try, stains and imperfections simply won’t come out? You may have fractures, cracks, or stains so deep that repairing them may not be the best option available. With dental veneers, you can conceal the defects and present a flawless smile that outshines all competitors.

Dental veneers can give your smile a boost. Ask yourself what dental veneers can do for you:

Why are dental veneers beneficial?
– Dental veneers vastly improve the look of your smile, enhance your self-image, and provide you with a natural looking surface to your teeth that is more difficult to stain than normal teeth are.

TRUE or FALSE: Dental veneers cannot replace missing teeth.
– This is true. Dental veneers are thin, extremely sturdy shells that are bonded to the fronts of your preexisting teeth for an aesthetically pleasing look that can conceal discolorations, minor curvatures, stains, cracks, and other various flaws in your teeth.

TRUE or FALSE: Dental veneers can restore any damaged tooth.
– This is false. Dental veneers cannot be used if the tooth enamel is nearly gone, or if the tooth is too weakened to support the veneers. In these cases, a dental crown could be a much better alternative.

How often do dental veneers need to be replaced?
– The normal lifespan of veneers is about one decade, but with proper care and maintenance, they can last up to fifteen years.
