Life is full of surprises, and not all of them are good. Things can happen to your smile over the course of a lifetime that can leave it chipped or discolored, or leave your teeth crooked. If your smile is looking a little rough, why not ask our dentist, Dr. Coley Ramsey at Next Level Dental about dental veneers?

Dental veneers are very thin porcelain shells that fit over the fronts of your teeth that can be shaded to blend in with your smile. Although the veneers are very thin, they are also very strong. They can be used to cover up damaged or discolored teeth, and can even be used to close gaps between teeth or to improve the appearance of crooked teeth. They are also more stain-resistant than your natural teeth.

Veneers are an easy solution for restoring your smile, but keep in mind that they still need to be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. You will want to use a non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid scratching your veneers. Veneers may not be a good choice for you if grind or clench your teeth, or if you are in the habit of chewing ice, your fingernails or other objects.

It is important to properly care for your veneers since their application requires removing some of the enamel from your teeth, and the process is irreversible.

If you are interested in learning more about how dental veneers can improve your smile, you should schedule an exam and consultation with Dr. Ramsey.
