What are veneers?

Imperfect teeth cause issues with how you look and feel, especially when you smile. Veneers are thin, tooth-like shells that Dr. Trachtenberg secures to your teeth. They improve the appearance of your smile by covering imperfections.

Veneers consist of solid materials like porcelain or composite. These materials allow the veneers to act like your natural teeth when chewing and speaking.

Dr. Trachtenberg attaches the veneers to the front surface of your teeth. This is how they differ from crowns, which cover the entire tooth. Any imperfections are hidden behind the veneer to give you a flawless appearance.

Veneers are purely cosmetic. Although veneers are tough, they only disguise the front of your tooth. You still need to be diligent in cleaning and brushing to ensure the health of your mouth and teeth.

When can veneers help?

Slight imperfections in your teeth have a profound effect on your happiness. When your smile isn't perfect, your entire life is affected. 

Dr. Trachtenberg understands the desire for beautiful teeth. He offers veneers as a way to cover problems with your teeth which include:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Stains
  • Gaps
  • Small teeth

If your teeth are misshapen, Dr. Trachtenberg evens them out with the help of veneers. You can transform your smile with just a thin shell that improves every tooth's appearance.

How long do veneers last?

There are various forms of veneers for you to choose from. There are also no-prep veneers that require less preparation on your part.

The type of veneers you get depends on how long they'll last. Traditional veneers permanently attached to your teeth' surface last up to 15 years.

When you take care of your veneers and visit Dr. Trachtenberg regularly, you're more likely to get a lot of use out of the veneers.

Brushing, flossing, and using good mouthwash ensures the health of your veneers. Never use your teeth to open packages or chew on solid objects, as this damages the veneers.
