Veneers: a Quick and Simple Solution to A Wide Range of Smile Flaws

A favorite of celebrities, you may think veneers are relegated to the world of cosmetic dentistry. But they’re actually quite versatile when it comes to solving a host of general dentistry problems. At Core Smiles, your dental health is our specialty. So, we want to make sure that you’re well-informed on all of the latest in dental innovations that will keep your smile at its best.

What are veneers?

Veneers are custom-made shells designed to fit perfectly over your teeth. They’re thin and formed from materials that closely resemble your natural teeth. The process of fitting veneers is permanent and you can expect your veneers to last anywhere from 7 to 15 years, after which you can replace them. 

One of the great things about veneers is that they don’t require any special care. All you need to take care of your veneers is to follow your regular good oral hygiene routine. This means you don’t need to do any more than your normal brushing, flossing, and rinsing to take care of your veneers.

What veneers can fix

Veneers can fix a couple of different imperfections in your smile, including:

Veneers are great for fixing any smile flaws short of complete tooth replacement. 

Veneers can improve your dental health

Veneers aren’t just for cosmetic imperfections. They’re also great for replacing damaged enamel. Enamel is essentially the outer coating of your teeth that protects the nerves and roots. Over time, this coating can become worn and eroded. This can lead to sensitivity, pain, and even tooth loss. 

Veneers can act as a sort of replacement enamel, coating your teeth and protecting them from harsh acids and erosive wear. They’re even approved by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry as an effective solution for damaged or lost enamel.
