5 Truths That Must Be Told about Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

  1. They Can Change the Shape of Your Face

    Along with improving your smile, cosmetic dentistry veneers can greatly enhance the look of your face. Based on your dental needs and desires, your veneer dentist can place veneers to do a serious makeover to widen your smile, accentuate your cheekbones, or make your face more symmetrical.

  1. May Not Affect Tooth Enamel

    Thanks to advances in dentistry, veneers no longer always require extensive enamel removal. Your veneer dentist may actually be able to place your veneers with little to no dental damage.

  1. They Soothe Sensitivity

    Everyone knows that cosmetic dentistry veneers can make your smile look better, but did you know they can also make teeth much less sensitive? According to dental care Detroit experts, cosmetic dentistry veneers can significantly reduce tooth sensitivity because they cover the front of teeth to provide a barrier against the foods and drinks that make them feel very sensitive.

  1. Careful Chewing Is a Must

    Veneers tend to be more fragile than cosmetic dental bonding because they are usually made out of delicate porcelain. As a result, you need to be very careful when eating very firm foods, such as raw carrots, apples, and meat on the bone. See, biting down on a very hard substance can cause the veneer to chip or fracture. That’s why dental care Detroit experts recommend chewing firmer foods with your back teeth to protect veneers on the front teeth.

  1. They Last a Long Time

    While veneers may cost more than cosmetic dental bonding, they also last much longer. With proper care and cleaning, cosmetic dentistry veneers can continue looking great for up to 20 years. And unlike cosmetic dental bonding, which can stain over time, veneers are stain-resistant to keep your smile white and bright for a very long time.
