Your One-Stop Guide to Dental Veneers

Veneers are among the leading cosmetic dental procedures that can fix minor dental issues and give you a fuller smile. Data suggests that millions of Americans are choosing veneers to make themselves look and feel better.

In fact, according to one study, the veneer market in the US is estimated to be worth over $581 million in 2021. 

At Pacific Highway Dental in Kent, Washington, Dr. Rena Jhuty, DMD, offers a host of general and cosmetic dental procedures for patients of all ages and knows perfectly well how veneers can help improve your image. 

In this blog, we’ve put together a list of the most important things you should know about veneers:

Veneers: What Are They?

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that Dr. Jhuty applies to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can hide chipped, stained, and uneven teeth, and improve their structure. 

There are two types of veneers available:

  • Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain is a tooth-colored material that dentists use in multiple procedures, including veneers, as it is very strong and durable. To apply porcelain veneers, Dr. Jhuty will file off part of your tooth enamel and apply the veneers using a bonding agent. 

Veneers made of porcelain can last for decades, provided they are well maintained.

  • Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers work just like porcelain veneers. The difference is that composite resin is not as durable as porcelain and, therefore, it is cheaper. When applying composite resin veneers, Dr. Jhuty will also file off less tooth enamel. 

How to Care for Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are strong and last long provided you maintain them by following a few simple rules and implementing a good oral care routine.

To retain all the benefits veneers offer, you should: 

  • Limit the intake of staining foods and drinks like coffee, tea, sauces, curries, and berries. That’s because these foods can gradually discolor your teeth and cause the sheen to wear off, and they can affect veneers the same way. 
  • Refrain from biting too hard on hard foods or materials, grinding your teeth, opening containers with your teeth, and biting your nails.

Veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that can dramatically improve your appearance and offer you renewed confidence in social situations.
