Discover what makes these cosmetic beauties tick.veneers

You want to have a smile that you just can’t wait to show off, but if discolorations and other small imperfections are keeping you from feeling confident in your appearance then it’s time our Springfield, MA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Laura Gramse, change all this with the help of dental veneers.

What can porcelain veneers do for my smile?

Just as artificial nails are a popular way to hide chipped, yellowing and unsightly fingernails, porcelain veneers do the same thing for your teeth. Dental veneers can mask a variety of tooth imperfections such as cracks, chips, small gaps between smiles, crowding, stains and other malformations. Veneers can instantly make your smile appear straighter without ever needing to wear braces.

How are veneers placed?

Before we can just put your dental veneers on we will need to prepare your teeth for your new restorations. Don’t worry; the preparation process is painless and straightforward. All we really need to do is file down some enamel from the front of your teeth. This will ensure that when the veneers are adhered they look natural and not bulky. Having such a small amount of enamel removed will not hurt and can often be done without the need for local anesthesia at all.

Once enamel has been filed away, our Springfield dentist will then need to take impressions of the teeth that will be getting veneers. These impressions will help a dental lab create custom veneers that offer a perfect fit just for you. While your veneers are being made we will determine whether we need to place temporary veneers over your teeth to protect them in the interim.

When you veneers are ready to be put on, you will come back into the office for a final visit. First, we will temporarily place them over your teeth so you’ll get an idea of how your new smile will look. This will also give you a chance to approve your new appearance before having the veneers permanently bonded to your teeth.

Porcelain veneers are an incredible and easy way to revamp and makeover your smile. If this sounds like the perfect cosmetic treatment for you then call our Springfield, MA, cosmetic dental office to book an appointment with us today.
