When it comes to improving aesthetic concerns such as chipped, discolored, or gapped teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent choice. On top of looking beautiful, these restorations are long-lasting. That’s because they’re made of a durable ceramic material and permanently bonded in place.

Fortunately, veneers don’t require more maintenance than natural teeth. You can help ensure they last for many years to come by following a few simple steps. Keep reading for veneer care tips from our Oakton cosmetic dentist.
