Are you aware of the benefits of dental veneers? Veneers can improve your smile by helping to cover the cracks, chips or stain on the front surfaces of teeth. They can also add length to your teeth and close gaps in your smile. They add an extra layer of protection to your teeth. However, because they only cover up the fronts of your teeth, it is important to continue brushing your teeth to prevent any dental damage from occurring.

Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers and dental porcelain laminates, are thin shells that are bonded directly to the fronts of teeth. In order for them to be held in place, a very small amount of tooth enamel will need to be removed. They are held in place with dental cement. They can be shaded to match your other teeth.

Veneers can be stained, and chipped so you need to watch your diet and avoid doing things to damage them. The cement can also wear away over time, and your dentist will need to reattach or replace them, if they fall off.
