There are a lot of different procedures in the dental world that people don’t completely understand. Most of that is due to the fact that we don’t need most of the procedures available, so we don’t get educated on what they are, or what they do to help a smile.

They’re a popular choice for many in cosmetic dentistry, and they’re recommended frequently by many dental professionals .Today, we’ll take a look at why veneers get so widely used and recommended.

What are Veneers?
Veneers are nothing more than wafer-thin porcelain shells, cut and shaped to be the exact size and shape of the face of your natural tooth. Usually you’ll see veneers made from porcelain, but there are other materials that can be used as well.

How do they work?
Veneers are really simple. If you have teeth stained from years of tobacco use or drinking coffee, veneers will cover those stains up, giving you a brand-new tooth surface. Veneers are sized and cut to match the shape of your teeth, then cemented in place using a special resin. Dr. Stuart Drange will do all of this at our office, and often it can be completed in one or two visits. The rest of the team here at Carson Valley Dental Arts in Gardnerville, Nevada, will assist as well.

Taking care of them
You’ll want to make sure you take care of your veneers just like your real teeth. Otherwise, your veneers will stain just like your normal teeth did, causing a whole host of problems.
