What can veneers do for me?
Veneers are a versatile dental restoration with many uses.
They can repair:
- cracked teeth
- chipped teeth
- slightly overlapped teeth
- slightly gapped teeth
- yellowed teeth
- stained teeth
Though veneers can repair various aesthetic issues, they cannot always take the place of the proper orthodontic treatment necessary to treat alignment and bite issues with your teeth. Consult with your North Attleboro, MA dentist to determine if veneers are the best option for you.
How do veneers work?
A veneer is a tiny shell of porcelain which, when placed over the front of a tooth, covers its imperfections. Veneers are permanent and usually last up to 20 years with the proper care. A dental laboratory creates each veneer based on a mold of your mouth taken by your dentist. Since the laboratory step takes about two weeks to complete, you will need to schedule two appointments for your veneers. At the first appointment, your dentist takes a mold of your mouth and prepares the teeth. This is done by shaving a tiny amount of enamel from the surface of each tooth which will receive a veneer. Temporary veneers protect your prepared teeth until the final restorations arrive at your dentist’s office. At your second appointment, your dentist carefully fits and bonds each veneer to your teeth.
The Benefits of Veneers
The most obvious benefit to veneers is the smile they help you achieve. This boosts self-confidence, making face-to-face encounters easier and giving you the chance to make only the best first impressions with a beautiful smile. Veneers are extremely durable and long-lasting. Made from porcelain, which has the same light-reflecting qualities as natural teeth, your veneers will blend into your teeth seamlessly. Veneers give you dramatic, fast results in only a few dental appointments.
