Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These porcelain restorations are permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers can be used to treat several cosmetic concerns, including chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth. Some people may only get one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth, but more often a patient will opt for 6-8 veneers to create a symmetrical smile. The top front eight teeth are the most common ones to receive veneers.
For patients seeking cosmetic dental treatment with veneers, the process is relatively simple. First, you’ll come in for a personal consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Hingham, who will take the time to learn all about your dental needs and smile goals. Once they have determined you’re a candidate, they’ll remove a minuscule amount of enamel, so your veneers blend in seamlessly with your existing grin.
When this step is complete, the dentist will take 3D images of your teeth that the dental lab will use to craft your custom veneers. This process typically takes a few weeks, so you will be provided with temporary ones in the meantime.
When our dentist receives your veneer from the lab, they will place it using an extremely strong bonding material. Further customization will be done as necessary. Once the process is completed, you’ll have the picture-perfect smile you’ve been dreaming of!
