Veneers are a type of dental restoration. Which is a cosmetic or dental procedure that changes the appearance of the front teeth.

They are a popular choice for people with crooked or chipped teeth who have noticeable gaps between their teeth. Veneers are thin, transparent shells that are bonded to the front teeth.

Veneers are applied to the front teeth in a series of steps. Typically, the first veneer is placed on the front teeth.

2) When it comes to veneers, imperfection is perfection.

Don’t aim to get a perfect set of straight white teeth. These look unnatural, making them an instant giveaway. Instead of chiclets, opt for veneers that enhance your existing teeth rather than changing how they look entirely. Then, your smile will look more natural, and whoever meets you will be none the wiser.

3) It’s not necessary to veneer all your teeth.

If you have one or two teeth that you are unhappy with, it’s possible to get a veneer just for those rather than shelling out for a whole new set of veneers. This is great for when you have that one tooth that you broke when you fell over as a kid.

4) Similarly, you can get either partial or full tooth veneers, depending on the type of damage to your tooth.

Partial veneers are good for teeth with minimal damage, whereas full veneers may be the better option if there is extensive damage to your teeth.

5) Make sure you go to an experienced and vouched-for dentist to get your veneers.
