A great smile can be yours with dental veneers. With a small procedure, your stains and cracks can be concealed and covered to make way for a much healthier looking exterior. Not only will your teeth look better, but your smile feels better too, giving you a heaping helping of self-esteem going forward. Here are some questions and answers about veneers:

TRUE or FALSE: Dental veneers can fix any broken tooth.
– This is false. Dental veneers cannot be used if there is not enough tooth enamel on a tooth, or if the tooth is too weakened to support the veneers. In these cases, a dental crown could be a much more realistic alternative.

How durable are dental veneers?
– The life expectancy of veneers is approximately one decade, but with proper care and maintenance, they can last up to fifteen years.

What are some of the benefits dental veneers can provide?
– Dental veneers vastly improve the appearance of your smile, enhance your self-image, and provide you with a natural looking surface to your teeth that is much harder to stain than normal teeth are.

TRUE or FALSE: Dental veneers are not substitutes for teeth.
– This is true. Dental veneers are thin, extremely durable shells that are bonded to the fronts of your preexisting teeth for an aesthetically attractive look that can conceal discolorations, minor curvatures, stains, cracks, and other various flaws in your teeth.
