Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers are fine porcelain shells that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth. They semi-permanently alter the appearance of your teeth without changing their structure or affecting their strength. In fact, if you take care of your veneers with proper oral hygiene and regular visits to Myers Dental, your veneers can last for 20 years or longer.
The Myers Dental team most commonly uses veneers to improve the appearance of the front eight teeth in your mouth: They’re visible when you smile, and they aren’t subject to the full forces of your bite when you chew. You can get veneers for several teeth or a single tooth that stands out from the others.
What can veneers conceal?
Veneers can hide a wide range of common imperfections that affect the way your smile looks. In some cases, you can even get them to conceal issues that usually require braces. The team at Myers Dental can design your veneers to cover:
- Crooked teeth
- Wide gaps
- Worn edges
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Short teeth
While some imperfections are there from the moment your adult teeth emerge, others accumulate as the result of day-to-day living. With veneers, your teeth look appealing without looking manufactured or unnatural.
How breakable are veneers?
The veneers at Myers Dental aren’t just strong: They’re nearly as durable as your teeth are without them. You won’t have to restrict your diet to avoid breaking a veneer, but you should follow the rules of caring for your normal teeth to improve your veneers’ longevity. That means using scissors to cut loose strings or plastic instead of your teeth, and stopping yourself from biting down on popcorn seeds, jawbreakers, and other solid objects.
Breaking or dislodging a veneer by accident is no cause for concern. Your tooth might feel a bit sensitive because of the enamel that your dentist removes during the placement process. However, if you call Myers Dental right away and keep the veneer with you, they can reattach it or get you a new one promptly.
