Veneers are applied to the front surface of each selected tooth (usually, these are the front teeth that show while smiling) after the teeth are properly prepared. The preparation process requires that patients have the enamel removed from each of these teeth; this is so that when the veneers are applied, they don’t appear too large or bulky.
With veneers, your teeth must continue to be brushed and flossed regularly. This is to ensure your oral health continues to thrive and your veneers are kept in excellent condition. Well maintained, your veneers can last up to 15 years.
