The holidays are all about sharing and giving to others, but it’s also good to treat yourself to a present, especially if you’re in charge of running your family’s holiday show – we know that with all the stress of decorating the house, shopping for gifts, attending pageants, and room-momming parties, you might find yourself […]
Veneers help where regular brushing and professional cleanings are not as effective in fighting stains on your enamel – essentially, they are thin layer of material that a dentist bonds to your teeth. They’re great because they’re stain resistance, and also serve a cosmetic purpose, as a dentist can use them to fill in gaps or remedy other cosmetic abnormalities with your teeth.
There are two types of veneers: resin and porcelain. The difference between the two is mainly in the application process, because resin veneers require less abrasion of the tooth’s surface in order for them to stick, though porcelain veneers look more like your teeth’s natural color. Once a dentist has abraded the surface of your tooth and cements the veneer, he or she will then bond it with a beam of light, and then remove any excess dental cement. With regular brushing and cleanings, your veneers will keep your smile looking brighter longer. It’s the holiday gift (to yourself) you appreciate all year long!
