What Can Veneers Do?

Dental veneers can cover and protect teeth that are cracked, chipped, broken, heavily stained, or simply worn down. Porcelain veneers are often also used to cover visible fillings or to cover teeth with large cavities. We can also use veneers in Springfield to to cover the appearance of unevenly spaced or crooked teeth, giving you a straight smile without the braces.

Are Veneers Faster Than Other Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures?

Getting a dental veneer applied takes two to three appointments. At your dentist in Springfield, your teeth or tooth will be prepared for the porcelain veneer when a small amount of enamel is removed. When the veneer comes back from the lab, custom created to fit your smile to a T, we will adhere it to your tooth with a strong bonding agent.

Are Veneers Long Lasting?

The average porcelain veneer will last from five to 10 years, and sometimes up to 15 years, depending upon your oral hygiene and lifestyle habits. Continue brushing and flossing as usual, and avoid tobacco products or chewing on hard objects like pen caps or ice, to make your veneers last longer.
