Could Veneers Work for Me?

The dentists in Sudbury, MA, know their patients want to have better-looking smiles, but sometimes the cost can be too high. For veneersthat reason Dr. Reina Garcia suggests dental veneers.

Veneers are used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged.

Here are some things veneers can help with:

  • Stained teeth or discolored, due to poor hygiene, drinking coffee and tea, smoking, chewing tobacco or even antibiotics containing tetracycline.
  • Mishappened teeth, which includes: crooked, worn or chipped teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, uneven surfaces and uneven spacing, like overcrowdedness.

When you come into the Sudbury office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If he or she decides it is, then any underlying issues, like cavities, will need to be resolved first. Then a model of your teeth will be sent to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.

When your veneers finally arrive, your dentist will remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth then cement the veneers. Removing some enamel, which is an irreversible process, prevents your teeth are protruding. On the contrary, they will feel smooth, even and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.

Other advantages of getting veneers include not using very much anesthesia. Also, veneers have an impressive color stability which makes them highly resistant to staining. So you'll be able to sip your tea or coffee without any worries.

Veneer Care:

Brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed. It's important to prevent the buildup of plaque that may result in cavities and other serious issues.
