Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain and placed on your tooth’s front surface. They are a cosmetic solution to fix chipped, discolored, misaligned, or crooked teeth. Veneers typically last 10 to 15 years and are highly durable, resisting stains and wear and tear. Dr. Clinton Sorensen offers porcelain dental veneers at our dental office in Salt Lake City. Porcelain is known for its durability, translucency, and natural look. Porcelain veneers can also last longer than other veneers, like composite resin veneers.
Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic fix for those with the following:
Dental veneers may be right for you if your smile has any of these cosmetic issues. However, it is essential to note that your oral health should be overall good.
Getting dental veneers takes a few visits to the dentist.
Taking care of your dental veneers is the same as if you were caring for your natural smile. When caring for your dental veneers, be sure to brush your teeth daily, floss, and use mouthwash. Be sure also to visit Dr. Sorensen for regular check-ups to help ensure your dental veneers and overall smile are healthy. We also strongly encourage our patients not to chew or bite down on hard objects, as this can damage your dental veneers.
Veneers have several benefits, especially as they are a highly popular cosmetic dental fix. Advantages of veneers include:
Dental veneers can give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile that boosts your self-confidence.
They can also fix dental problems, such as gaps, misshapen or crooked teeth, and discoloration.
Porcelain veneers are not only natural looking and match your natural teeth, but they are also stain-resistant, helping you maintain a bright, white smile for years.
Another significant advantage of veneers is that they require minimal tooth alteration compared to other dental treatments.
Dental veneers have few risks or complications, but they do exist. One of the most common issues is tooth sensitivity, especially to hot or cold drinks or food. You may also experience mild discomfort if your teeth received more alterations than usual for the veneers. Additionally, veneers can chip, break, or come loose over time.
