If you would like to improve the beauty of your smile, consider veneers in Spring Hill, Florida. Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made of tooth-colored materials. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance.

What issues to dental veneers fix?
Dr. Jeffrey Lash, DMD may recommend veneers to repair:

– Discolored teeth
– Worn down teeth
– Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
– Misaligned, uneven, or misshapen teeth
– Gapped teeth

What are the benefits of veneers?
Dental veneers bring many advantages, including:

– Natural tooth appearance
– Veneers offer a conservative way to improve the appearance of the teeth. Veneers don’t require as much shaping prior to placement as crowns do. They are a stronger, more aesthetic alternative.
– The gums tolerate porcelain well
– Veneers made from porcelain are stain resistant
– A shade of veneer can be selected that makes the teeth appear whiter

How long do dental veneers last?
Dental veneers usually last from five to ten years. The veneers would then need to be replaced by our dentist.

Do they need special care?
No. Simply practice good oral hygiene oral practices. Brush twice a day, floss once a day, and use an antiseptic mouthwash. Also, be sure to visit our office regularly. Porcelain veneers resist stains, but just to be safe, our dentist may recommend avoiding stain-causing foods and beverages like red wine, coffee, and tea.
