Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored, translucent porcelain. They are customized so that they fit perfectly over your natural teeth thereby improving their shade, shape, and overall appearance.
The dental treatment "porcelain veneers" is often called instant orthodontics because it can instantly improve your teeth's appearance. These veneers work perfectly in covering a variety of dental problems that involve teeth in the smile zone. So if you have gaped, poorly shaped, crooked, broken, chipped, permanently externally stained and/or internally stained teeth, then dental veneers are an ideal solution for your case.
Undergoing a treatment that makes use of dental veneers (here in Newport News and Hampton, VA) enhance your smile immediately after the procedure. But you should take good care of your dental veneers to keep them from chipping or coming off. Aside from avoiding to use them to bite or crack hard objects like nuts and ice, you also need to do preventative care measures to improve the durability and longevity of the dental veneers. You will need to maintain consistent good oral hygiene and have regular dental examinations and cleanings at least twice each year in order.
