When you think of the perfect smile, you might imagine the face of your favorite celebrity. Guess what? Chances are, his or her smile was enhanced with porcelain veneers!

No longer a procedure to which only the rich and famous have access, versatile porcelain veneers can take your smile from dull to dazzling. Make an appointment for a consultation at our Chesterfield, MO, dental practice, and we can talk about how veneers might be able to give you the beautiful smile you should have been born with.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Made of thin, translucent porcelain, a veneer fits over your natural tooth structure, essentially hiding a multitude of dental issues. Veneers can be used to fix one or two teeth, or they can improve your entire smile for maximum impact. Because some of your tooth surface must be removed to make room for the veneers, this is a permanent dental solution.

Some of the dental issues they are ideal for fixing include:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Fractured, gapped, or chipped teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth

How Should I Care for My Veneers?

Caring for your new smile is easy. Brush twice a day and floss at least once. Keep up with dental check-ups and cleans every six months. Although they are strong and durable, damage is possible, so use common sense and don’t use your veneers as a tool or to chew anything that isn’t food.

If you take good care of your veneers, they can last a good number of years—as many as 15!
