Are Dental Veneers Permanent?

Many patients are not happy with their teeth. It could be stubborn discoloration, uneven spacing, or even mild overlapping.

Dental veneers in Merrillville, IN can hide these issues and more. They are thin, shields that fit across the front of your teeth. They look like natural enamel and may conceal the following:

  • Discoloration
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Abnormally shaped teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Gummy smiles

Dental veneers are considered permanent because your dentist removes a little tooth enamel to flush your veneers to your teeth, which prevents bulging.

If you’re considering veneers, the first step is scheduling a consultation with your Merrillville dentist. We want to make sure that your oral health is in top shape before beginning cosmetic therapies. If the dentist gives you the okay, we start the veneer process.

Following placement, your dentist provides specific upkeep instructions. However, you’ll want to brush and floss as usual and visit your dentist for regular checkups and teeth cleanings to keep your teeth healthy. Tooth decay and gum disease can lead to tooth loss and loss of your veneers.
