There may be several things about your teeth that you would like to change. Instead of undergoing numerous small procedures to correct minor cosmetic issues, our experts at Peabody Dental Group instead offer the creation and application of porcelain veneers in Peabody, MA.
These veneers take two appointments to complete and will cover your smile without affecting its function, allowing you to have the teeth you want without undergoing painful or invasive surgery or treatment.
Veneers are essentially thin shells that cover the dental enamel of the teeth. The shells tend to be made from materials that can be shaded to either match the natural color of your teeth or be even brighter and whiter. Some of the most common are composite resin and porcelain, which are lightweight and durable.
Many people find veneers beneficial because they can change the appearance of the teeth very quickly. Veneers can last for decades, making it a sound financial investment.
If you choose to have veneers done near you, then you will want to be properly prepared. At Peabody Dental Group, our dental staff will walk you through the process and make sure you understand the pros and cons of the treatment.
This procedure can be completed in two appointments. During the first, our dentist will remove 1/8 mm of dental enamel from the front of your teeth. A mold will then be made of your smile and sent to our lab so the veneers can be created.
You will return to our office after two weeks for the application of your new veneers. During this appointment, we bond the shells to your teeth using a simple resin putty.
Afterward, your teeth will feel like normal again. We strongly recommend you avoid some behaviors, though like smoking or chewing ice cubes. These can damage or discolor the veneers.
