What Are Veneers?

Simply put, veneers are thin ceramic shells that can be placed on top of the teeth. They are able to conceal a variety of aesthetic imperfections by changing the apparent size, shape, color, and alignment of your teeth, allowing you to completely change how your smile looks to others.

Our veneers are made from an incredibly high-quality ceramic, providing them with a level of durability and realism that can be difficult to achieve with any other cosmetic treatment.

The Process of Getting Veneers

As with any aesthetic treatment, we will begin by bringing you in for a consultation. We will talk with you about what you’re looking for and how veneers could potentially help you.

Once we’ve settled on a treatment plan for you, we’ll take sophisticated digital impression of your teeth, and will use this information to design what your veneers are going to look like. You will work with your doctor and our ceramist during this process to make sure that you’re satisfied with your eventual results.

In order to make room for the veneers, a small portion of your enamel will need to be removed. After trimming this away, we’ll cover your teeth with a set of temporary veneers while we craft your permanent restoration in our in-house dental lab. Once these are done, we’ll bring you in to finally put your cosmetics into place.

Benefits of Veneers

We’ve touched on some of the factors that separate veneers from other cosmetic treatments already. For one, they’re capable of addressing a wide variety of aesthetic issues all at once, and over an incredibly short time frame. However, their merits don’t end here.

 The veneers themselves are made from high-quality ceramics, making them resistant to stains. They’re also remarkably durable, regularly lasting around 15 years before needing to be replaced. Finally, the ceramic we use imparts remarkable realism—nobody will know you’ve had dental work done unless you decide to tell them.

If you are interested in experiencing all that veneers can offer firsthand, or if you just want to learn more, feel free to schedule a consultation with us. We’d love to talk to you about how this cosmetic treatment could change your life for the better.

Veneers FAQs

Do you have other questions about veneers in Boston that aren’t discussed here? Feel free to reach out to our team for clarification and to schedule your consultation.

How Much Enamel Needs to Be Removed for Veneers?

We will take off about 0.5mm of enamel from the front surface of the teeth receiving veneers. Without this extra space, your veneers would protrude and look less natural. Before we remove the thin layer of enamel, we will numb this area of your mouth, so you shouldn’t feel any pain during this part of the process. Obviously, this entails making a permanent change to your teeth, but when they see the results, most patients are thrilled and feel it’s well worthwhile.

Do Veneers Require Special Care?

No, veneers need the same care as your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing should keep plaque from building up and decaying teeth that veneers are attached to, and routine preventive dental care (e.g., dental checkups and cleanings) allows us to keep an eye on your veneers. If we notice any signs of excessive wear and tear, we can replace your veneers and always keep your smile in brilliant, excellent condition.

How Can I Make My Veneers Last as Long as Possible?

As long as you perform regular oral hygiene and continue to visit our team, your veneers should last about 15 years before needing replacement. Although veneers don’t require any extra special maintenance, there are some choices you can make to possibly extend their lifespan. For instance, to slow down staining even more, you can limit eating and drinking deeply pigmented substances, such as coffee, tea, wine, soy sauce, tomato sauce, and more. You can also cut back on the sugar you consume, which can help your teeth stay strong and cavity free.

How Long Is the Veneers Process?

In total, getting veneers usually takes two appointments with a couple of weeks in between. This time gives our ceramist time to craft your veneers to your unique mouth. If you have a special event coming up and want to have your veneers ready and in place by then, make sure you give plenty of room in your schedule for treatment. Discuss your goals and timeline with us, and we will do everything we can to empower your smile for your event.
