Veneers are one of the most powerful cosmetic treatments out there. They’re capable of dealing with a stunning number of issues all at once, from yellowing to crooked teeth. Moreover, the entire treatment can be completed within as little as two appointments!

However, before you pursue this treatment there are some things you should know about how best to care for your new smile. Here are some important facts about veneers that prospective patients ought to keep in mind.

Veneers Require Care

Veneers can make you feel invincible, but the truth is that teeth underneath your veneers are still vulnerable to decay. If you allow plaque to build up it’s possible to see cavities form underneath your veneers.

If this happens, you could need to remove or replace your veneers. It’s therefore incredibly important that you prevent cavities by brushing and flossing your teeth thoroughly each day.

Veneers are Semi-Permanent

Veneers are not technically permanent. They don’t last forever, which means that they will eventually have to be replaced.

However, in placing the veneers, you will need to remove a small portion of your enamel. This isn’t any problem so long as you have dental work covering your teeth, but without them you could experience tooth sensitivity. Enamel also won’t grow back, which means that you’ll always need to have something protecting your teeth.

Veneers are Unbelievably Lifelike

People are often nervous about veneers because they think that their teeth will look “fake”. While this may be the case for cheap dental work, most veneers are made from sophisticated materials and are perfectly tuned to match your smile. As a result, you can expect your veneers to be as subtle as they are beautiful
