Veneers are great cosmetic procedures that we provide at Dr. Renee Kurtz DMD in Cheshire, CT. They’re one of the most commonly used items in smile makeovers. We all aim to look good and feel better about ourselves. There’s no shame in admitting that how we look affects our confidence.
One of the best ways to restore a smile to its former glory is through veneers. Dr. Kurtz has been working with veneers in Cheshire, CT for years. She knows what would be best and how to meet the expectations of our patients.
People who keep up with celebrities or already had veneers done in the past will be familiar with them. Alternatively, many of our patients hear about veneers for the first time when we mention them as an option. At Dr. Renee Kurtz DMD, veneers are a way we can make your smile much brighter.
To put it simply, veneers are like thin shells that we stick to the front surfaces of teeth. They’re bright and can cover up stained or disfigured teeth, so they no longer affect the person’s smile. If teeth are resistant to teeth whitening, veneers are another great way to improve a smile.
Veneers are permanently placed. We stick them firmly, so they don’t fall off your teeth, so you won’t be able to take them off before you go to bed. They’re very thin so people don’t notice them. They might feel a little weird in your mouth when you first get them, but you’ll get used to them within a few days.
When we place veneers, we can adjust them to make sure they don’t affect your bite. Don’t expect veneers to last forever though. They wear off with time despite lasting for over 5 years. You’ll still need to take care of them. Having an artificial shell over your teeth doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care about dental hygiene.
Your natural teeth will still be vulnerable to decay if they’re not brushed. Veneers can also stain, just like natural teeth, so they need to be taken care of.
