When Should I Consider Veneers?
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin covers that go over the front of your teeth to give them a more traditional appearance. Once in place, veneers will look like a natural tooth. Dentists use veneers to correct a variety of dental issues, including crooked or misshapen teeth, chipped or worn teeth, large gaps or uneven spaces between teeth, and stained teeth that can’t be whitened.
What to Know Before You Get Veneers
If you’re interested in getting veneers, it’s important to keep in mind that your teeth and gums must be healthy before the veneers can go in place. Also, just like your natural teeth, veneers can chip or break. This is why you should avoid biting hard objects, such as ice. You might also need to wear a night guard while you’re sleeping if you grind your teeth.
