Veneers

If you’re looking to get a beautiful smile in a short amount of time, you should consider porcelain veneers from Apex Dental. Veneers are highly effective in improving the appearance of your teeth by changing their shape, position, or shade. In addition, they are useful for replacing lost teeth. veneers1

Veneers consist of a thin shell of either resin or porcelain. This material is bonded to the surface of the teeth that you would like to have improved. Veneers have the power to give your teeth added strength while enhancing their whiteness or reforming their shape or placement.

Due to their thinness, veneers are a very discreet and conservative option. Unlike crowns, they don’t require extensive shaping in order to correct teeth. The tissue of your gums is typically very tolerant to the material that veneers are made of, so they won’t cause pain or irritation to your gums. Another benefit of veneers it that placing them typically requires little to no tooth structure to be removed.

Generally, veneers last for for 5-10 years before needing to be replaced. After getting your veneers, simply practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing as you normally would. Veneers require no special care procedures in order to be maintained.

Veneers are specially designed to resist stains. However, if you’d like to keep your teeth perfectly white, you may want to avoid coffee, tea, and foods that are known to cause tooth staining.

If you clench or grind your teeth, veneers may not be the right choice for you. These activities can cause your veneers to crack or chip, meaning that they’ll need to be replaced or repaired much sooner. In addition, chewing on pencils, ice, or other hard objects can damage your veneers.
