How Dental Veneers Can Help Your Smile

Posted .

Do you have smile flaws that make you embarrassed, or even ashamed of your smile? If you dream of a more beautiful, radiant smile, Dr. Valerie Foster may recommend veneers in Aloha, Oregon.

What Are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain or ceramic that is placed on the front of a tooth to enhance its appearance. Veneers look natural and are strong and resilient like natural tooth enamel. Your veneers will be custom made specifically for your smile. When they are ready, they will be bonded to the front of your teeth.

When Are Veneers Used?
Our dentist may suggest veneers for your smile if you would like to correct:

– Gaps between your teeth
– Minor misalignment
– Stained or discolored teeth
– Chipped or cracked teeth
– Misshapen teeth
– Teeth that appear too short

Do They Require Special Care?
Brush and floss your teeth with veneers in the same way that you do your natural teeth. In addition, visit our dental office often for your regular dental appointments. Do not chew pens, your nails, or ice, as this can damage your veneers. Keep in mind that your veneers will need to be replaced at some point. Caring for your veneers will help them last for as long as possible.
