What You Need to Know About Dental Veneers

What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that are used to cover the front side of the teeth. Dr. Pallotto and Dr. Osmolinski may recommend veneers if you have smile flaws that you would like to correct. Improving the appearance of your smile can increase your confidence and self-esteem.

What Smile Flaws Can Dental Veneers Fix?
Veneers in Oak Lawn, Illinois, can correct many smile imperfections, including:

– Discolored teeth
– Worn down teeth
– Chipped or broken teeth
– Misaligned or uneven teeth
– Irregularly shaped teeth
– Gaps between teeth

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
Dental veneers usually last between 5 and 10 years. After this, your veneers will need to be replaced so you can maintain your beautiful smile.

Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care?
Our dentists may recommend that you avoid foods and beverages that may stain your dental veneers, including red wine, tea, and coffee. This is just a precaution, as veneers resist stains. Dental veneers do not require any special care. You can continue to brush, floss, and use mouthwash as normal.
