What Are Veneers?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you might want to consider getting veneers in New York. Many patients choose veneers to get a smile they can be proud to show off. Our guide can help you learn about veneers before you schedule an appointment with your dentist:

What They Are

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that can help patients become more confident in their smiles. These thin shells are custom-made for each patient from tooth-colored materials that look just like natural teeth. Dentists attach veneers to the front of the teeth to create a more attractive smile.

What They Do

Cosmetic dentists may recommend veneers to patients interested in improving their smiles. Your dentist will start by taking X-rays and impressions of your teeth. These impressions are sent to a lab to create your custom veneers. You and your dentist will also work together to pick the right shade for your new veneers. Once the veneers are ready, your dentist will prepare your teeth and attach the veneers to the front of the teeth.

Who They Help

Many different patients can benefit from veneers. These thin shells can improve the appearance of chipped or broken teeth. They also make worn down teeth look new and help dull or discolored teeth look bright and white. Patients may also choose veneers to improve the appearance of gaps or misaligned teeth.

How to Maintain Them

Veneers will look and feel like natural teeth. You can take proper care of them by following a good oral hygiene routine. This should include brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and avoiding or limiting foods and drinks that can stain or weaken teeth. Most veneers last between 5 and 10 years and can be replaced after that.
