Porcelain veneers are custom-designed shells of teeth used to improve the appearance of teeth which are stained, chipped, or broken. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain adhered to the existing teeth to change the appearance of teeth which are too short, textured, badly stained, or gapped. This works better than bonding because veneers resist staining from food and drink and have a longer life expectancy.
The process starts with Dr. Johnson making a model after an in-depth consultation at one of our Massachusetts offices. Then the veneer is created, and it is then applied after removing a bit of the enamel from your teeth. This procedure usually involves 3 visits from diagnosis to bonding.
No matter what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues, including worn enamel, wear and tear, genetics, gaps, chips, and stains. Dental veneers falls into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright white smile with beautifully straight teeth.
