Veneers usually last around 10 years. If they have chipped, it can be very frustrating. But since they are 12 years old, it is recommended to replace them.

Actually, porcelain veneers are a great way to fix a number of problems with your teeth!

Dental Veneers Can Brighten Your Smile?

More and more people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth. For this reason, dental veneers have become very popular. Veneers are used to treat several situations. Discolored teeth, worn down or chipped teeth, or teeth that are crooked, may all benefit from veneers. Veneers or laminates are thin shells that are bonded to the front of the tooth. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual need. Veneers can be made of either porcelain or resin. Resin veneers are thinner and require less removal of the natural tooth. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, resist stains and have more natural "sparkle". You and your dentist can decide which is best for you. The actual process of applying the veneers is not complicated. Initially you will consult with your dentist and explain what it is that you hope to achieve. The dentist will examine your teeth and will evaluate whether or not veneers are appropriate for you. Following the initial consultation a follow-up visit is required to prepare the tooth for the veneers. The dentist will remove a portion of the tooth and will make an impression of your mouth. The impression, or model, is sent out to a dental lab that will make the actual veneer. If needed, the dentist will apply temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready. At your final visit the dentist will check the color and fit of the permanent veneers and will continue to trim them until he or she is satisfied with the fit. Finally the veneer is applied to the tooth and the dentist will "activate" the chemicals in the cement which will cause it to cure quickly. Lastly the dentist will clean the tooth of any excess cement and evaluate the all-over fit and appearance. Veneers are permanent and the process is not reversible. There may be some sensitivity to hot and/or cold or the color of the veneer may not be an exact match to your natural teeth. Veneers can also be expensive. Even though there are some drawbacks, most will agree that it is a small sacrifice for a lovely smile.
