Is your smile perfect? Do you have a discolored or cracked tooth? Are you struggling with spaces in your teeth? Are you ever embarrassed by the imperfections in your smile? If so, you aren’t alone. In fact, did you know that Americans pay over a billion dollars every year on whitening’s alone? Of course, if you are interested in perfecting flaws other than the color of your teeth, there are other options you should consider. For example, veneers could be what you need.
Veneers are thin shells designed to cover the front of your teeth–meaning they’ll cover your flaws and even help your teeth function better. When you visit our office for veneers, our dentist, Dr. Lyudmila Shur, will make sure these shells match the color, shape, and size of your teeth.
Fortunately, after you’ve had veneers, you can expect to enjoy them for years to come–without much more effort than it takes to clean your teeth. Still, there are some things you can do to extend the life of your veneers. In fact, if you care for your teeth properly, your veneers could last for twenty years. One thing you need to do is brush gently. If you brush too hard, you could unintentionally damage your veneers. Similarly, there are certain drinks you should avoid, including soda and alcohol. Finally, please don’t chew on ice, pencils, or other inedible objects.
If you care for your veneers properly, you can enjoy a smile for years to come. If you’re interested in learning more, please feel free to contact us at 425-741-2030. We look forward to hearing from you.
