Did you chip your tooth? Are your teeth stained? Thankfully, these cosmetic flaws have quick fixes such as dental veneers. At M.Y. Dental Spa, Dr. Mimi Yeung offers porcelain dental veneers for patients who are looking to improve the appearance of their teeth and smile. Prior to investing in veneers, it is important to note the benefits. Here Haute Beauty expert Dr. Yeung reviews the top three pro's.

1. Treat a wide range of cosmetic issues

As one knows, dental veneers are used to treat cosmetic issues. These range anywhere from discoloration to chips, gaps and cracks. These veneers are thin, yet sturdy coverings that bond to your teeth's surface to make them look more natural and hide imperfections.

2. Can be used with other forms of treatment, such as tooth whitening

Just because one has veneers does not mean you stop all dental hygiene routines. In fact, keeping up with your brushing and flossing daily will help them stay in good shape. Keep in mind that porcelain veneers should not stain, so you don't have to worry about avoiding certain foods or beverages but the surrounding teeth can be stained. To sustain a uniform smile, whitening strips are recommended.

3. Porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years

Although this does vary from person to person, porcelain veneers have a long life span. At one point, there is a chance your veneer can become chipped or even come off of your teeth, which means they might need to be replaced or repaired. Adjustments also might need to be made as your teeth and gum tissue change over time.
