One of the greatest benefits of veneers is that you can begin to enjoy the results almost immediately. Because they are placed during a non-surgical procedure, there is virtually no recovery or downtime needed. Your veneers will be ready to show off as soon as you leave our office.
Veneers are made from stain-resistant, high-quality dental porcelain and can be cared for just like your natural teeth. However, there are a few things you can do to keep them looking great for many years to come. To prevent fracturing your veneers, avoid:
- Chewing on ice, pen caps, or fingernails
- Opening mail or packages with your teeth
- Grinding your teeth excessively
If you grind your teeth during the night, our doctors can recommend an oral appliance that helps you avoid excessive pressure on your veneers.
