Do Veneers Extend the Life of Your Teeth?

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

Porcelain veneers are primarily used to correct imperfections with your teeth. They are not intended to extend the physical life of your natural teeth, but they do repair and visually enhance teeth that have minor flaws due to cracks, chips or stains for a very long time. Veneers also provide an enamel finish that is superior to natural dental enamel in terms of stain resistance, enhancing the appearance of your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers as a Lifetime Solution

To achieve a white smile you can be happy with for years, porcelain veneers are a safe and durable solution. Each porcelain veneer is custom-created by Dr. Young to match your natural teeth and give you a gorgeous smile.

Veneers are bonded with an adhesive so that they do not alter in placement over time. Natural teeth that have been capped with veneers are strengthened as veneers provide a protective barrier. However, the key to truly extending the life of your natural teeth is effective oral hygiene.

Other benefits of porcelain veneers are their resiliency and natural appearance so as to be practically unidentifiable from your natural tooth color. In this sense, veneers rejuvenate your imperfect teeth, and extend the life of your smile.
