Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or plastic filling tooth-colored materials according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Veneers are used to re-create the natural appearance of teeth, while also providing strength and durability comparable to natural tooth enamel. As a result, dental veneers are custom made and bonded to teeth to improve appearance. Veneers are a key element of cosmetic dentistry due to their ability to makeover smiles with beautifully shaped and aligned teeth. However, dental veneers also provide protective qualities, by eliminating the need for more extensive treatments, providing durability, improving smile appearance, and requiring minimal removal of tooth structure.
Dental veneers are a great solution to improve the look of your smile for teeth that are:
- Worn down
- Chipped or broken
- Irregularly shaped
Porcelain veneers have shown to resist stains and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. As a result, veneers offer a conservative approach to improving tooth color and shape. Generally, veneers are an effective solution that don’t require the shaping involved with dental crowns. Although porcelain veneers resist against stains, it is still important to maintain necessary oral care. Good oral hygiene practices include routine brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash. A dentist in Fair Lawn NJ may still recommend to avoid stain-causing foods or beverages such as coffee, tea, or wine.
