Am I A Good Candidate For Veneers?
If you have a healthy mouth but you have multiple cosmetic problems with your teeth, veneers may be right for you. They are ideal for treating stains, misshapen and uneven teeth, slightly-crooked teeth, and even minor chips.
However, veneers are not meant to treat oral health issues or repair damaged teeth. If you have serious tooth damage or other oral health issues, these problems must be addressed before you can get cosmetic treatment.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Veneers have a typical lifespan of up to 10-20 years. You can prolong the lifespan of your veneers by maintaining great at-home oral hygiene, eating a “tooth-healthy” diet that’s low in sugar, and seeing the team at Joshua Austin, DDS & Associates for oral exams and teeth cleanings every six months.
What Are Veneers Made Of?
Veneers are made out of porcelain ceramic materials. Porcelain looks, feels, and functions just like natural enamel, providing a seamless look.
Porcelain is also very strong, which means it’s durable enough to hold up to chewing and biting. Unlike your natural enamel, it’s also completely nonporous. This means that porcelain cannot be stained, and will always look bright, white, and beautiful.
