Your smile is often the first thing others notice about your outward appearance. Showing off your best possible smile can make face-to-veneersface interactions and first impressions more enjoyable and help you feel great about the way you look. However, sometimes it takes some help from your dentist to get to that point. Find out the facts about dental veneers and how they can help you achieve a smile you love with Dr. Reina Garcia at Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA.

What can dental veneers do for me?
Dental veneers can overhaul your smile to give you a new look. On the other hand, veneers can also provide subtle changes to your teeth. The results and effects of your veneers on your look depend completely on your preferences and expectations for your final results. Some of the most common issues corrected by veneers include:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • discolored teeth
  • yellowed teeth
  • slightly misaligned teeth
  • slightly gapped or overlapped teeth
  • uneven teeth

Can dental veneers compliment other cosmetic dentistry services? 
Dentists often use several cosmetic dental procedures in conjunction with each other to provide the results you want. Veneers work well with many other cosmetic procedures, especially if you only receive veneers on a few teeth. While teeth whitening does not work on the porcelain of the veneers, it can help you whiten the natural teeth in your smile. Your dentist can then match the color of the veneers to your natural teeth. Other procedures like dental implants or bridges can fill in the gaps in your smile alongside veneers. Consult with your dentist to determine the best cosmetic procedures for you.

Dental Veneers in Sudbury, MA
A good candidate for dental veneers is in good dental health with no cavities or gum disease. Candidates should also have realistic expectations for their veneers and understand that veneers are a permanent and irreversible commitment. Veneers usually require two dental appointments about two weeks apart. This gives the dental laboratory enough time to customize each veneer for your individual teeth.

Find out the many ways veneers can improve the look of your teeth.

Have you ever thought to yourself that you don’t have the smile that you would like to have? Unfortunately, so many other people feel the veneersexact same way. Just normal wear and tear on teeth can cause them to chip, crack, break or become discolored. While you should be seeing your Sudbury dentist Dr. Reina Garcia every six months to maintain a healthy smile, if you are looking to correct your smile’s flaws then it’s time to find out if veneers are the right way to do it.

Porcelain veneers are a less invasive way to change the shape, color or size of your teeth without needing as much tooth preparation as other restorative dentistry treatments like dental crowns. Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide imperfections and to improve the overall look of your smile. Veneers are made from tooth-colored porcelain that not only cover defects but also are designed to look just like natural teeth. In fact, the porcelain used is designed to even mimic the translucency that real teeth offer, so you’ll get a restoration that looks natural and realistic every time.

Sometimes veneers can be placed immediately over the front of your teeth or your Sudbury cosmetic dentist may need to remove some enamel from your teeth to make room for your new restoration. Dental veneers can be great for,

  • Reshaping teeth that are uneven, cracked, chipped or have excessive wear due to teeth grinding. Veneers can restore their shape.
  • Hiding major discolorations and stains that don’t respond to whitening treatment. Better yet, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant.
  • Providing additional structural support. Veneers are highly durable so applying these restorations to the front of your teeth can increase strength and resilience back into weakened teeth.
  • Instantly straightening your smile. Consider veneers like orthodontics but without all the metal brackets and wires. Veneers can close gaps, cover slightly rotated or crooked teeth, and even minor overlapping.
