Veneers


Veneers in Yuba City, CA

A chip in your teeth, even if it's small, can make you feel self-conscious every time you glance in the mirror. Luckily, you don't have to live with chips and other flaws in your teeth. We explain below how veneers can help improve your smile.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Since they only cover the front surfaces of your teeth, getting a veneer doesn't require extensive dental work. They're used to conceal a variety of imperfections, including:

  • Slight gaps between the teeth
  • Chips and cracks
  • Short teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth

Veneers are also a popular choice for people who want whiter teeth but aren't satisfied with the results of teeth whitening. Whether you want to change the appearance of one tooth or all of them, veneers offer a simple way to make over your smile.

 

How do I care for veneers?

Brushing and flossing as usual is the best way to care for your veneers. Avoid using abrasive toothpaste, as it can scratch your new veneers. Don't use your teeth as a tool to open packages, and avoid biting into very hard foods. Although veneers are tough, hard objects can chip or crack them.
