You probably know that there are several things you could do to enhance the color of your teeth? Similarly, do you ever wonder what you can do about small chips or cracks in your pearly whites? If so, did you know that veneers are one option you should consider?

You see, veneers are actually thin shells made to blend with your other teeth. Furthermore, veneers are designed to be attached to your teeth. As you may have guessed, this will cover small imperfections. Again, even though veneers are very thin, they’re durable since they’re attached to your pearly whites. In fact, if you care for your veneers well, they could last for 15 years.

Of course, there are several things you could do if you’d like to extend the life of your veneers. For instance, please avoid opening things with your pearly whites. Similarly, please don’t chew on anything made of metal. Chewing ice can also hurt your teeth and your veneers. It’s also important that you brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes at a time. You should also floss every day and schedule appointments with us every six months.
