Did you realize that more Americans spend over a billion dollars each year on their smile? More specifically, Americans spend over a billion dollars on the appearance of their smiles. In other words, if you’re ever embarrassed by your smile, you aren’t alone. And if you’re going to pay to enhance your smile, you should have the best treatment available. We recommend at least considering dental veneers.
Veneers are thin shells designed to cover the front of your teeth–meaning they’ll cover your flaws and even help your teeth function better. When you visit our office for veneers, our dentist, Dr. Nathalie Dowsett, will make sure these shells match the color, shape, and size of your teeth.
Fortunately, after you’ve had veneers, you can expect to enjoy them for years to come–without much more effort than it takes to clean your teeth. Still, there are some things you can do to extend the life of your veneers. In fact, if you care for your teeth properly, your veneers could last for twenty years. One thing you need to do is brush gently. If you brush too hard, you could unintentionally damage your veneers. Similarly, there are certain drinks you should avoid, including soda and alcohol. Finally, please don’t chew on ice, pencils, or other inedible objects.
If you care for your veneers properly, you can enjoy a smile for years to come. If you’re interested in learning more, please feel free to contact us at 403.229.0510. We look forward to hearing from you.
