What are Veneers?

Dental veneers are stain-resistant, custom-made porcelain or composite shells that fit over your teeth to improve their appearance. Glued to the front of your teeth, veneers cover chips, stains, and misshapen teeth. The purpose of veneers is to create a cosmetically pleasing appearance.

There are two types of veneers:

1. Composite Veneers

also known as direct veneers, are applied to your teeth in a single dental visit and last between five and seven years before needing replacement.

2. Porcelain Veneers

or indirect veneers require two visits to Smile Boutique because they are custom-made to fit your teeth. During the first visit, the dentist gets your teeth ready for the veneers that are installed at the second appointment. Porcelain veneers last for at least 10-15 years.

How Do You Get Veneers?

Caring for Veneers

Proper oral hygiene helps you maintain your veneers for as long as possible. Therefore, it’s important to treat your new veneers the same way you do your regular teeth. Be sure to keep up with your recommended oral hygiene routine and use non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.

You should also consider limiting your intake of coffee and other stain-inducing substances. If you clench or grind your teeth, ask your dentist for a night guard to help protect your veneers and teeth from damage.
