How Do Veneers Fix Cosmetic Issues?

Posted By: Dr. Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry

The Veneers we use in our dental office are thin, shell-like porcelain coverings. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Cerina Fairfax, can fix cosmetic issues with your smile by bonding dental veneers to the fronts of your teeth, hiding imperfections to create a beautiful, flawless smile.

Many of our patients love the versatility dental veneers provide, which allows them to cover a wide variety of smile flaws quickly and without the hassle of invasive dental procedures. 

Dental veneers are customized to match the rest of your smile. We can customize the veneers not only to match the shade of the rest of your teeth but also to cover a huge variety  of dental issues, including:

  • Differently sized teeth, which make your smile appear uneven
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or fractured teeth
  • Mildly crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth

We can use dental veneers to cover a single flawed tooth or we can use them on multiple teeth to create an entirely new smile. Another big benefit of porcelain veneers is their durability. Porcelain veneers can last for a decade with proper care and attention, so they are truly a long-lasting cosmetic fix.

How to Care for Veneers

To get the most out of your dental veneers, Dr. Fairfax will ensure that you do not grind your teeth, or that any teeth grinding issues are treated before you get your porcelain veneers. We also advise patients with veneers to make slight adjustments to their diet for the safety of their cosmetic dentistry. Try to avoid foods like nuts, hard candies, popcorn, and other hard or crunchy foods that could damage your veneers.

Another step you can take to protect your veneers is to give up bad habits, like nail-chewing or ice-chewing. Also, try to avoid holding hard objects in your mouth, like a pen or pencil.
