Veneers

by Dr. James Springer 7. June 2013 11:06

Veneers are thin custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of teeth.  Made of teeth-colored materials, veneers are used to fill in open spaces between teeth and to treat teeth that are permanently stained, poorly shaped or slightly crooked.  They may also cover teeth that are chipped or worn.

 

Veneers are available both as ceramic veneers or composite resin veneers.  Each type has unique advantages.  Your dentist will help you choose the best material for you based on durability, stain resistance, color and appearance.

Trivia:

  • If you don’t floss, you miss cleaning 35% of your teeth surface.
  • A tooth that has been knocked out starts to die within 15 minutes, but if you put the tooth in milk or hold it in your mouth it will survive longer.  See a dentist ASAP.
