Did you know that many celebrities have veneers? Big Hollywood names like Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus, and Niall Horan weren’t born with moviestar smiles so they turned to veneers to help. So, what exactly are veneers? Good question!
Veneers are wafer-thin shells of tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve the way they look. These shells can be bonded change their color, shape, size, or even length. They look and feel like natural teeth so you may even forget you have them.
The cool thing about veneers is that they can be customized to meet your unique aesthetic goals. You don’t like the stains on your teeth? Veneers can help. You wish your teeth were longer. Veneers can come to the rescue. Whatever your concerns is, veneers can likely resolve it.
Believe it or not, don’t require any special care. Yes, you read that right. You’d treat them like you regular teeth and brush twice a day, floss once a day, and visit the dentist every six months or so. While the typical veneers last anywhere between 5 to 10 years, the better you care for your veneers, the longer their lifespan will be.
If you’re unsure of whether you can benefit from veneers, it’s a good idea to visit the dentist and find out. They may be able to take a picture of your face, digitally edit your teeth, and show you what you can expect if you do decide to move forward with veneers.
In most cases, men and women who are bothered by stains or discoloration on their teeth, misaligned teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, or small gaps between teeth are great candidates for veneers. Essentially, if you have a cosmetic concern, veneers may be a great way to solve it.
