Advantages of Veneers

Patients often ask why they should consider veneers over options like teeth whitening, and there are a lot of reasons. Whitening allows you to improve the color of your teeth a few shades at a time, but it does not do anything for minor alignment issues, chips, or other esthetic issues. Veneers, on the other hand, allow you to present a corrected smile that is not only as bright as you like, but that also looks straight and hides any cosmetic damage to teeth.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Your dentist in Rochester Hills, MI, will tell you that when cared for properly, veneers have a fairly long life. They are not permanent prosthetics, though. That means you will need to plan for a replacement when they begin to wear. Your dentist will be able to keep an eye on them from cleaning to cleaning, though, so you’ll have help monitoring their progress, and that will make it easy to know when they need to be replaced.
