Enhancing Your Smile with Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers Framingham MA

Dental veneers offer patients a great opportunity to enhance their smile. If you are unhappy with chipped teeth, large gaps, stained teeth, and misshapen teeth, you can improve your self-esteem with dental veneers. 

Dental veneers cover the fronts of the teeth using wafer-thin shells. These shells are made of porcelain or composite materials and customized to fit your mouth. These shells are created and then bonded to the teeth to change their length, size, shape or color. They can fix teeth that are cracked, chipped or worn down. Also, you can close gaps without the need for braces with dental veneers. Many patients obtain their ideal smile with veneers. Learn more about dental veneers below and contact us today!

Dental Veneers Process

The process of getting dental veneers requires several steps. This first step involves treatment planning. Discuss your goals with your dentist. He or she can assess your current smile and determine if veneers are the right choice for you, or if another option would result in a better outcome. The dentist may also take X-rays.

If veneers are right for you, they will involve some preparation. In order for the veneers to fit onto the tooth, the dentist has to remove some enamel from the tooth’s surface. This process is irreversible, so you can’t change your mind later. The dentist will then make impressions of the teeth and send them to the lab so your veneers can be created. This process takes 2-4 weeks.

When your veneers are ready, you will return to the dentist. The dentist will place the veneer on your tooth to make sure you are happy with it. Next, the veneer can be trimmed or the color can be changed if needed. Finally, the tooth is polished and etched and the veneer will be bonded to the tooth with cement. A special light will be used to harden the cement. 

The dentist will then make any final adjustments, such a removing any excess cement and checking your bite. Be prepared to come back in a few weeks for a follow-up appointment. Your dentist will check the placement of the veneer and ensure your gums are tolerating the veneer well.
