How Long Do Dental Veneers
Veneers make teeth look more even, whiter, and straighter. They can be used for single-tooth repairs or even a full-smile makeover! With proper care, veneers can last for years, bringing you the smile of your dreams.
When placing veneers, the first step is to take impressions of your teeth. At our office, we have an intraoral scanner that replaces the traditional molds. This scanner uses a wand to map the inside of your mouth. Scans are digital, making them more accurate than traditional molds and easy to retrieve. Using these scans is also quite efficient as we can send the scans to the laboratory instantly.
A laboratory produces the veneers according to the shapes of your teeth. Once the veneers are ready, your teeth are prepared for the placement process. A dental-grade cement is applied to your teeth before placement; the cement is hardened using a beam of light. Veneers are a non-reversible option to improving your smile.
Veneers provide an excellent aesthetic for your smile. They are stain-resistant, however, you may be advised to avoid drinks that stain your teeth, like coffee or red wine. You will also need to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and attending regular dental visits.
With care, dental veneers can give you a brilliant smile worthy of the red carpet. Call our office if you would like to see how veneers can help you!
