How Long Do Veneers Last?

Ever wonder how every Hollywood star has a perfect, sparkling smile? It’s not special effects: it’s dental veneers — and you too can get the Hollywood smile of your dreams at Donald Kim, DDS, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry!

In this blog post, we give an overview of this cosmetic treatment and its benefits.

What Are Dental Veneers?

At Donald Kim, DDS, we recommend dental veneers for patients who want to improve the overall appearance of their smiles. Dental veneers are designed to even out flaws like chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, crooked teeth, and uneven teeth.

Veneers are made from thin sheets of tooth-like porcelain or tooth-colored resin and are designed specifically for each individual patient.

During your veneers consultation, we will ask you about your smile goals and examine your teeth. If dental veneers are the right fit for you, we will then take impressions of your teeth to create veneers that are custom made for your smile. Veneers are considered permanent since we will need to gently remove some of the enamel from your teeth. This alteration will allow your veneers to fit snugly against your teeth.

When your veneers are ready, you will return to our office to get them bonded to your teeth. Once your veneers are bonded, we may make minor adjustments to make sure they’re perfectly placed and that you are satisfied with your smile!

How to Care for Dental Veneers

Caring for dental veneers is as easy as caring for your natural teeth! You can and should brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, and avoid biting down on hard foods and non-food objects. Eat a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and avoid tobacco products. These oral health habits will keep your gums healthy and your underlying teeth free of tooth decay.
