Benefits of Dental Veneers at Park Cedar Dentistry – Part 3

added on: May 7, 2024

Dental Veneers Require Little Enamel Removal

Once enamel wears away, it’s gone for good. Fortunately, veneers only require a thin layer to be removed. If enamel isn’t removed, when the veneer is bonded on the tooth will look large and awkward. Since the veneers process is noninvasive, you may not even need anesthesia for any part of it.

While porcelain veneers are only bonded to the fronts of your teeth, dental crowns and dental bridges have to fit over a tooth or multiple teeth. This means that your dentist would have to remove more enamel for a crown than for a veneer.

Dental Veneers Can Prevent Tooth Discoloration

By practicing good oral hygiene and being conscious of the foods you eat, you can help your veneers last for years to come.

Dental veneers will be what sees the most contact with the food and beverages you eat. This is beneficial in protecting your natural teeth, but you should still treat your veneers with care. An example is how if you bite down on ice too hard they could chip.

If you take good care of your veneer teeth, you can expect them to last about 10 years.
