What can dental veneers do for me?
Dental veneers are a versatile procedure which treats many dental issues. The most common situations treated by dental veneers include:
- chipped teeth
- cracked teeth
- slightly overlapped teeth
- slightly gapped teeth
- worn teeth
- misaligned or uneven teeth
- misshapen teeth
- discolored teeth
- yellowed teeth
The Dental Veneers Process
We will need to prepare your teeth before placing your veneers. This process involves removing a very thin layer of enamel from the front of the tooth. After preparing the tooth, an impression is taken of your teeth. This impression will be sent to the dental laboratory used in the design process of the veneers. The laboratory creates your veneers individually and returns them to your dentist’s office. You will have a second appointment to fit and place your veneers.
Dental Veneers in Milton, MA
Veneers are versatile and can help you overhaul your smile or simply repair a single tooth. Depending on your situation and your teeth, your dentist will suggest the best course of treatment for you. This is best assessed at a consultation between you and your doctor. You can also ask about veneers at a routine dental examination or cleaning. Patients should see their doctor every six months for these appointments, especially after receiving their veneers. A strong at-home oral care routine coupled with regular dental appointments will keep your teeth healthy and clean for years to come.
