Did you know that people spend millions of dollars annually just on teeth whitening treatments? This is, at least in part, because having imperfections in your teeth can be pretty embarrassing. Still, while whitening your pearly whites is one thing you can do to improve the color of your teeth, had you heard that veneers can perfect small issues?

However, dental veneers are extremely useful because they’re made to blend and look like your other teeth. In fact, these veneers are actually thin shells that are fused to your teeth. Because they’re attached to your natural teeth, they can be used to cover quite a few problems, such as chips, cracks, and discolored teeth. If you care for your veneers well, you could enjoy their benefits for ten to fifteen years.

Furthermore, if you care for your veneers properly, you may be able to expand their life. In order to do so, you should try to brush and floss your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes at a time and you should remember to floss on a daily basis. However, when you do brush your teeth, you could try using non-abrasive toothpaste. You should also remember to schedule regular appointments with our dentist. During these checkups, we’ll be able to give you individualized dental advice.

You should also be aware that chewing on ice, pens, and metal could damage your veneers. Trying to open things with your pearly whites could have the same effect.
