If you have unwanted tooth flaws or minor tooth damage that is affecting how your feel about your teeth, Dr. Sarah Frye and our team can help you choose dental restorations such as dental veneers to achieve the smile you want. Maintaining the appearance of dental veneers can be simple with the right dental care habits.

Dental flaws such as discoloration, tooth stains and other tooth flaws can often be addressed with these thin, porcelain shells, which are also called laminates. Our dentist can attach the dental veneers to the tooth’s surface so that you can have an improved smile aesthetic and even tooth enamel may better protected.

The placement of dental veneers does not mean your teeth with become immune to tooth decay, partially since the shells only cover one surface of the tooth. It’s important to care for your teeth on a daily basis in order to keep your veneers and teeth protected and in good shape. Dental hygiene habits such as flossing and brushing can effectively maintain the appearance of your veneers and natural teeth.

Over time, cracks, stains and loss of cement can reduce the quality and appearance of your veneers, and it’s important to visit our dentist to restore these restorations. Their expected lifespan is about 10 years when they receive the right care.
