Get To Know About Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are custom made tooth shells that are usually applied over the tooth surface. They aim at covering the enamel of the worn out tooth and help with getting the scratchy tooth aligned. They also help in covering up the spaces, cracks and chips of the teeth with ease.

Dental veneers are good alternatives for teeth that have lost color or shape or have become crooked. They can even be used to remove the gray or yellow tinge that has got settled on the surfaces of the teeth.  You can get more details about ‘tooth facet’(also known as ‘facette dentaire’ in French Language)online through various websites.

To make sure that your veneers last for a long time, below are some tips that you can follow:

Regularly practice proper oral care: Caring for your veneers is similar to caring for your natural teeth. As such, it is important to brush them at least two times every day and floss at least once per day.

Avoid chewing on hard objects: Although dental veneers are tough, they are still not as strong as regular teeth. Avoid chewing on or biting hard objects as it can cause your veneers to chip or become damaged.

Avoid food and beverages that can stain your teeth: Finally, dental veneers are usually stain-resistant but the adhesive that is used to keep your veneers attached are not resistant to stains. This can cause the edges of your veneers to become darkened or yellowed. As such, try to avoid beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, and try to use a straw in order to decrease the chances of these drinks staining your veneers.
