Are you embarrassed or ashamed of your smile because of imperfections that affect its appearance? Are you interested in building your confidence through cosmetic dentistry? Our dentist may recommend veneers, which are thin, tooth-colored shells placed over the front of your teeth. Dental veneers improve your smile instantly, but they need proper care to remain bright and beautiful.

With proper care, dental veneers from RM Advanced Center for Cosmetic Dentistry can last 10 to 15 years. If your veneers begin to look damaged or worn, you may need to have them repaired or replaced by our dentist. The lifespan of your dental veneers is based on how well you care for them.

To keep your veneers in good shape, you need to care for your oral health by brushing your teeth twice a day and floss daily, as well as visiting our office at least twice a year for dental checkups. Also, avoid bad dental habits like using your teeth as tools to open things and chewing your nails or on pens or ice, as these can cause a dental veneer to chip. If you suspect you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep, tell Dr. Roberto Macedo so that we can treat the issue and prevent it from weakening your veneers.
