What are veneers?

Dental veneers are very thin, custom shells that are adhered to the front of your teeth in order to improve the appearance of your smile. These thin, tooth-colored shells can alter the shape, size, color, and length of your teeth.

 

Would I benefit from veneers?

Veneers can fix a variety of cosmetic flaws. Dr. Glenn Edens might suggest that veneers are an excellent option for you if you desire to correct any of the following dental problems:

  • Discolored and stained teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth

Are veneers permanent?

Dental veneers are permanently cemented to your teeth using the latest advancements in dental bonding. These veneers will last many years if given proper treatment. Typically veneers will need to be replaced after about 10-15 years. In order to get the best performance from your veneers, you should practice good dental hygiene habits.
