Veneers tend to be a good option if you have generally healthy teeth, meaning you don’t have active gum disease or extensive decay.

Benefits of veneers

In addition to a brighter, more consistent smile, veneers bring more convenience and ease compared to options such as dentures. And unlike dental implants, which may require surgery and a lengthy process, veneers go on quickly, without the need for extensive tooth reshaping.

Veneers can also boost your confidence, making everything from social gatherings to having your photo taken more comfortable.

Caring for veneers

Once your veneers are in place, you treat them just like normal teeth. Continue your good oral hygiene practices, such as flossing, brushing, and rinsing your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash.

While porcelain veneers are basically stain-resistant, Dr. Theerathada might recommend limiting stain-causing foods or beverages to preserve the white shine of your veneers. Meanwhile, make sure you schedule routine dental cleanings. If you take good care of your teeth, your veneers can last up to seven to 15 years.
