How to decide if Dental Veneers are the Right Choice for You

Porcelain veneers are a common practice in cosmetic dentistry. They are thin, custom made shells that are bonded to the front teeth to improve the smile.

Dental veneers are ideal for improving oral problems such as crooked and misshapen teeth, tooth discoloration and gaps between the teeth. With the use of latest technology and decades of experience, My Smyle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can integrate veneers that transform your smile.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain sheets bonded to the front of a top and bottom teeth. A small amount of tooth enamel is removed to ensure the veneer looks natural and fits the tooth.

The patient needs to wear a temporary set of veneers for about two weeks until the permanent veneers are ready.

Who Should Not Get Veneers?

People who grind their teeth may not be the right candidates for veneers. Regular grinding causes the veneer to dislodge.

Many other patients want to avoid dental veneers that have untreated oral health issues, i.e. a toothache or cavity. These issues need to be addressed prior to getting veneers.

Do Dental Veneers Hurt?

There is no pain as the dentist will give anaesthesia to remove any discomfort associated with the enamel reduction. The reduction is very small and doesn’t come near the tooth’s nerve or root.

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

The longevity of dental veneers depends on the patient. Consistent care for the veneers contributes to their longevity. With regular care, a set of dental veneers lasts for 10 to 15 years.

Veneers and Teeth Cleaning

Consistent cleaning is important for the appearance and lifespan of a set of dental veneers. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste for cleaning porcelain veneers. When you visit a dentist for regular cleaning, inform that you have veneers. Certain instruments will be used to clean your teeth.
