If your smile could use a new boost, you might consider looking into dental veneers. Dental veneers are a relatively quick, painless way to brighten your smile and make some healthy corrections to your mouth.

Porcelain dental veneers are thin shells which are created to fit over your teeth to cover minor imperfections. The advantages to porcelain veneers are many:

–They allow your smile to look natural like your own teeth.
–Your healthy gums work well with these types of veneers.
–They are resistant to staining (however, you may still want to be careful about drinking too much tea, coffee or red wine as it is stain resistant, not fool-proof).
–The veneer’s color can be chosen to make teeth look whiter.
–Veneers are stronger than crowns and allow changes to your tooth without filing it down as you would when placing a crown.

Caring for your porcelain veneers is simple; you treat it as you would your natural teeth. Just continue brushing and flossing twice a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush that lets you tend to your gums and gum line as it does cleaning your tooth. Use an American Dental Association approved toothpaste and a flossing method of your choice, follow up with an antibacterial mouthwash rinse and you are good to go!
