Have you been looking in the mirror lately, wondering if there's a way to fix the problems with your teeth? Sure, braces can straighten veneersthem and whitening them can improve their color, but if you're dealing with several cosmetic issues at once, you may be more suited for veneers, a cosmetic dental procedure offered by Dr. Selena Marchan, your cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville, Florida. Curious about how veneers can solve your problems? Read on.

Versatile veneers

There are many cosmetic dental procedures that can improve one problem at a time, but only veneers can correct several cosmetic dental issues through the use of tiny sections of porcelain. With just one restorative procedure, gaps, chips, overlaps and discolorations can be eliminated, leaving a gorgeous, million-watt smile in their place. It's no wonder that veneers are the preferred restoration of celebrities in the music, television and movie scenes. But you don't have to be an A-list star to have a beautiful smile with veneers - you just have to visit Dr. Marchan in Jacksonville!

Veneer vitals

A thorough examination from your Jacksonville dentist will help determine if veneers are right for you. They are permanent restorations, which means that they cannot be removed after placement because the natural teeth must be prepped in an irreversible way. They should also only be used on people who have made good oral hygiene a habit. Although veneers repair dental problems, they do not prevent them, and decay must be kept to a minimum to ensure the longevity and proper function of veneers. With proper maintenance, including checkups from your Jacksonville dentist, your veneers can last as long as 20 years before needing to be replaced or repaired.
