Dental Veneers in Newburyport
A veneer is a small, thin piece of porcelain that fits directly on the front surface of the tooth, forming an airtight bond around the tooth, and making the tooth the shape and color you desire.
Porcelain veneers, sometimes called tooth veneers, can be used to correct both color and shape problems and make for a great smile makeover.
Would you like to have that "Hollywood" smile? Then, Veneers might be the answer for you. If you are looking to have the smile you have always wanted, come see us at Portside Family Dental, and we will evaluate your teeth. If your teeth are a little crooked, this might be fixed with Invisalign braces. If your teeth are chipped, this might be fixed with bonding or tooth colored fillings. If your teeth are stained externally due to coffee, tea or smoking, this might be fixed with Teeth Whitening. But, if your teeth have a combination these factors or the staining present on your teeth is more of an internal stain (i.e. Tetracycline, enamel issues, fluoride intake) then you may be a great candidate for Porcelain Veneers.
Overview of Tooth Veneers
Often an alternative to crowns, veneers are very thin pieces of specially-shaped porcelain or ceramic that are glued over the front of your teeth. They are the cure for teeth that are severely discolored, chipped, have small holes or pits, misshapen or crooked, or for the correction of unwanted or uneven spaces. Unlike crowns, veneers won't require the dentist to remove much of the tooth itself. Veneers are created from an impression taken in your cosmetic dentist's office. Your custom veneer is then glued directly onto your tooth. Typically costing less than crowns, veneers won't stain, making veneers a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile. Strong and very durable, veneers are often the best treatment options to correct specific cosmetic issues.
