What are veneers, anyway?
You’ve probably heard about them, and perhaps you know someone who has them or have seen someone on TV talking about them. Veneers have certainly become a very popular cosmetic dental treatment over the years. That’s because once these thin, translucent shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, they can drastically alter the overall shape, length, color, and alignment of your teeth.
When are dental veneers placed?
Veneers are amazingly versatile, as they can treat a wide range of cosmetic dental flaws to create the perfect smile. During a consultation, our cosmetic dentist and his team here in Fort Worth, TX, will examine your teeth, discuss your treatment goals, and then decide whether your goals align with what veneers can offer.
Veneers are able to address these issues:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chips and cracks
- Discolorations and severe, widespread stains
- Uneven, worn down or malformed teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Minor crowding or overlapping of teeth
Do veneers require special treatment or care?
One of the advantages of receiving dental veneers is that you can treat them just like you would natural teeth. This is because they do not require special care—just brush and floss them regularly and maintain good oral hygiene. Of course, there are certain habits that you should avoid if you want to protect your new smile. These habits include nail biting, eating ice or hard foods (think hard candies, which can be tempting to crunch on) and using your teeth as tools.
