Dental veneers were first created in the 1930s, when they were mainly used by actors as a way of enhancing their smile. Today, the quality and affordability of veneers have turned them into a popular option for many people who wish to improve the appearance of their teeth with minimal dentistry.
Dental veneers can be thought of as contact lenses for your teeth, as they consist of very thin coats of durable porcelain materials that are applied over the patient’s natural teeth. Veneers may be recommended for a variety of conditions. For example, some people have chipped, crooked, broken or otherwise damaged teeth whose appearance can improve after having dental veneers fitted. In other cases, veneers are chosen for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons, to improve the look of excessively separated or uneven teeth.
In terms of aftercare, it is important to remember that you should look after your dental veneers as if they were your own teeth. This means that you should maintain a good dental hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing. It is also recommended that you attend regular follow-up appointments after having veneers fitted, so that potential problems can be detected on time and addressed adequately.
