When it comes to cosmetic dentistry products, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. Especially with the internet, which for all its good, can be just as harmful if not more harmful when looking for accurate information. Throw in social media, and it becomes very difficult to tell up from down. But thankfully, there are still dentists to help guide you through any questions or concerns you might have about cosmetic products and procedures! If you’ve ever wondered about veneers, you’re not alone. Though they are a popular product, many people don’t know the basics about them. So without further ado, here are some facts about veneers to answer those burning questions you may have about them!
How Long Do Veneers Last?
One of the first questions people have when making the investment in veneers is how long do they last. The great news is that while they won’t last forever, veneers can last up to 20 years without needing to be replaced if you take care of them. This means caring for your teeth as you would without them – brushing twice a day for two minutes at a time, flossing, and visiting Dr. Abelar twice yearly. Furthermore, we recommend not biting into foods like whole apples with the front teeth if they have veneers, rather cutting food into smaller pieces so bites are more manageable.
Can I Control How My Veneers Look?
Yes! If you’re interested in getting veneers but are concerned they will look unnatural, there’s no need to worry. Dr. Abelar will work with you to find a shade and shape that suits you, so you’ll never be stuck with too-white or too-square looking teeth, or with anything other than exactly the look you were hoping for.
Is There A Difference Between Veneer Brands?
Yes, there are many brands of veneers, all of which have slight differences in performance, materials, and cost. If you are interested in getting veneers, Dr. Abelar can go over the differences in products with you and help you make an educated decision.
Are Veneers Strong?
Again, yes! In fact, today’s veneers are stronger than your natural enamel, making them very durable and easy to care for. To learn more about your veneer options, please contact Dr. Abelar’s office today!
