Did you know that Americans spend millions of dollars every year just on teeth whitening? This is, at least in part, because having imperfections in your smile can be embarrassing. Still, while whitening your teeth is one thing you can do to improve the color of your teeth, did you know that veneers can perfect other issues?

Still, veneers are useful because they’re made to blend with your other teeth. Veneers are actually thin shells that are attached to your teeth. Because they’re attached to your teeth, they can be used to address a number of problems, such as cracks, chips, and discolored teeth. Furthermore, you should be able to enjoy your veneers for up to fifteen years.

Still, if you care for your veneers well, you might be able to expand the life of your veneers. Of course, you should brush and floss your pearly whites twice a day for two minutes at a time and you should remember to floss every day. However, when you brush, please remember to use a non-abrasive toothpaste. You should also remember to set up regular appointments with our team. During these visits, we’ll be able to offer you individualized advice.

You should also remember to avoid chewing on ice, pens, and metal. Trying to open things with your teeth could also damage your veneers. To learn more about avoiding these problems, or about preserving your veneers in Coos Bay, Oregon, we invite you to give South Coast Family Dentistry a call at 541-269-5353.
