Americans spend millions of dollars on the appearance of their teeth every year. Having flaws in your smile can be embarrassing, and this causes many people have issues with their self-confidence. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to attain a more beautiful smile. And when you’re considering your options, please don’t forget about dental veneers.

Veneers, which are very thin, sturdy shells, are fused to a natural tooth. Once these veneers are placed, they can cover a number of imperfections. In fact, while veneers can be used to improve the color of your teeth, they can also be used to correct chips, cracks, worn, or stained teeth. They can also cover abnormally spaced or shaped teeth. And once they’re placed, veneers will be extremely durable.

Even though veneers are sturdy, you’ll need to care for them. Naturally, you’ll need to brush and floss as you normally would—just please remember to brush gently and to use a brush with soft bristles. We also recommend using a non-abrasive toothpaste, and you may consider speaking with our dentist before choosing the best toothpaste for you. Finally, if you have dental veneers, please don’t misuse your teeth by biting your nails or chewing on pens or ice.
