What Can Dental Veneers Do for Me?

Dental veneers are an effective and long-lasting treatment that restores the appearance of individual teeth after a lifetime of damage. At Dental Square, we provide the best veneers in Mountain View, giving you a glowing smile for years to come.

Veneers are suitable for addressing stained or discolored teeth or teeth that are cosmetically damaged or chipped. The treatment removes a thin layer of enamel from the front of the tooth, replacing it with a custom-made porcelain veneer.

The porcelain that replaces the front of the tooth has an appearance and feel that closely mimics natural teeth. It's also strong and resilient, standing up to years of normal activity, although there are certain foods and habits that should be avoided.

If your teeth have become stained or discolored due to decades of consuming coffee, red wine, or cigarettes, or due to other factors, veneers provide lasting brightness for your smile without adversely affecting your natural teeth. For chipped teeth or other physical damage, veneers could be a great solution for you as well.

Living with Your Veneers

Once your veneers are in place, you can expect your restored smile to last for years, given the proper care. How long do veneers last? This can depend on a variety of individual factors, but in general, at least ten years. How you care for them following the procedure can have a significant impact on that number.

The most important part of caring for your veneers is to avoid biting anything that isn't food. Many of us can recall using our teeth to open packaging or bite our fingernails, but these actions can damage veneers. Some harder foods should be avoided as well for the best results, particularly chewing ice.

The good news is that as your veneers become worn over the years, they can be replaced as easily as when they were first applied. Just like how the original treatment removed enamel to provide a good fit, the reapplication will remove the existing veneers to make room for the new.
