Dental veneers —thin shells bonded to one’s teeth to cover imperfections—were invented 85 years ago by a California dentist to help give movies stars their gorgeous on-camera smiles. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, dental veneers are now among the most popular and trusted ways to transform an imperfect smile.
When Veneers Are Used
The material used in veneers—usually porcelain—closely resembles the appearance of natural teeth in color, texture and the way they reflect light. Veneers are used to correct the visible flaws of your teeth, such as yellowing or discoloration, chips and cracks, gaps between teeth, mild misalignment and misshaped teeth. The end result is a bright, pleasing and natural-looking smile.
Easy to Care For, Long-lasting
Veneers are cared for like your natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. However, you should use nonabrasive toothpaste with a soft-bristle toothbrush to prevent dulling and scratching the veneers. With proper care, veneers can last for up to 25 years.
