Dental Veneers – the Details

Posted .

If you’re ready to take your smile to the next level, then you’ve likely been looking at a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures. From whitening to polishing and crowns, the choices are seemingly endless.

If you’re considering dental veneers, then you’d likely want a bit more information on the subject. Luckily, we have just that for you right here in this blog post.

What are Veneers?
Veneers are shells, built from porcelain, that are cut, colored, and shaped to be a perfect fit over the outer surface of your teeth. Veneers can be made from a variety of materials, but porcelain is popular for its durability and ease of molding.

How do they work?
Veneers are simple in that they just really cover up previous imperfections. Veneers are sized and cut to match the shape of your teeth, then cemented in place using a special resin. Once in place, it’s like walking out of Dr. Steven Driggers’s office at Sonshine Family Dental in Avon, Indiana with a brand-new set of teeth.

Taking care of them
You’ll want to make sure you take care of your veneers just like your real teeth. Stained veneers can’t be fixed, and you’ll have to get new ones if you stain your current set.
