Through the wonders of modern dental technology, there are a number of ways to restore the natural beauty of a person’s smile. For instance, one simple cosmetic method that’s very popular is called “dental veneers.”
Veneers are thin shells that have a smooth, translucent surface. They’re custom-designed to fit over the front surface of a tooth, much like false nails fit onto fingernails.
A dental veneer is a cosmetic dental treatment that is used to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth that has been badly discolored or damaged through decay or injury. They are popular for their effectiveness in making imperfect teeth look healthy and natural again.
In addition to restoring the appearance of an imperfect tooth, dental veneers can sometimes help to provide some protection for a tooth that’s vulnerable to damage.
If you have dental veneers, your dentist may recommend that you avoid certain foods and beverages which may stain or discolor your veneers. For instance, red wine, coffee and tea are three infamous, veneer-staining beverages.
