What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin covers that bond to and cover the front of teeth to improve their appearance. They are one of the most popular and most-used cosmetic dentistry treatments available. Veneers are great solutions for individuals with discolored, misshapen or fractured teeth.
Will people know I have veneers?
Most people do not notice veneers as they are custom made to fit teeth are created to look natural. Porcelain veneers behave much like a tooth’s natural enamel, protecting the teeth and strengthening them. However, because of their high-tech material, veneers also are able to resist stains that natural enamel does not resist, such as coffee, tea and cigarettes. The associates at Federal Way Dental Excellence will provide you with custom fit veneers that look exactly like natural teeth.
Do veneers last?
Veneers are made to last for 10 or 20 years. They are not a permanent solution but they are made of high quality material and are extremely durable. When you combined their high quality with strong bonding materials, a steady application, your veneers can last for many years. It’s essential that you maintain healthy oral habits and care for your teeth well following the application of your veneers to ensure that they last for a long time.
