About Veneers

These go over your natural teeth and improve your smile so you have white and natural looking teeth.

Veneers and Your Teeth

Do composite veneers ruin your teeth? The answer to this is no, they do not. Veneers aren’t going to ruin your natural teeth. Composite veneers are going to enhance the natural beauty of your teeth. They will not ruin your normal teeth and will be fitted to match your smile as they are fabricated to fit your mouth. A composite resin is going to be used to bond them to your natural teeth and then this will harden. Once the veneers have hardened and have bonded to the teeth they’re polished and shaped until you have a new smile.

The resin that is used to attach the veneers to the teeth will not ruin the tooth underneath the resin. A porcelain veneer won’t be made out of enamel like your teeth are. Veneers will not stain your teeth so you can drink dark liquids such as coffee without having to worry about stains on the teeth. Veneers are also very hard and resistant to damage than normal teeth can suffer. Composite veneers will not damage normal teeth and they make the teeth resistant to staining as well as tooth damage.

Composite Veneers
