When you’re looking to improve your smile, you thankfully have a lot of different options to choose from. One of the options that gets overlooked though, is dental veneers. These are a great choice for people with surface stains on their teeth, or other imperfections that need a bit of love.

But do you know what veneers are, or why you’d want to use them? Let’s take a few minutes to answer those two important questions.

What are they?
Veneers are nothing more than wafer-thin porcelain shells, cut and shaped to be the exact size and shape of the face of your natural tooth. Veneers are usually made from porcelain, although other materials are often used.

How do they work?
Veneers are really simple. If you have stained teeth, veneers fit over those stains to give you an entirely new look. Veneers are sized and cut to match the shape of your teeth, then cemented in place using a special resin. Once in place, it’s like walking out of Dr. Joe Collins’s office at Key Dental Group in Madison, Mississippi with a brand-new set of teeth.

Taking care of them
Make sure that you take care of your veneers like your real teeth. Veneers can – and will – stain if you don’t take care of them. So make sure you’re avoiding things that can stain your teeth.
