What Are Dental Veneers?

Much like in woodworking, where a veneer adds a decorative finish to a basic structure, dental veneers are slim layers of cosmetic dental material adhered to the front of your teeth, enhancing their appearance.

Porcelain is the preferred material for dental veneers due to its durability and resistance to staining – which surpasses even that of natural dental enamel. It can also be crafted to mimic the natural color and light-reflecting properties of real teeth. Dental veneers made of a composite material also exist but they are not as durable and as aesthetically pleasing and can stain over time.

Applications of Dental Veneers

Our North Andover cosmetic dentists use dental veneers for various improvements:

  • Covering Stains and Discolorations: When teeth whitening can’t remove certain stains, dental veneers offer a solution by covering them. These stains, often intrinsic, may result from enamel demineralization or excess fluoride intake, leading to fluorosis.
  • Altering Tooth Shape: For teeth that are misshapen or uneven, veneers provide a way to achieve a more uniform look. They’re typically applied to multiple teeth to ensure consistency in size, shape, and appearance.
  • Closing Gaps: Instead of enduring months of orthodontic treatments like braces or Invisalign®, dental veneers can quickly close gaps between teeth, offering a controlled and aesthetically pleasing appearance without the complications associated with orthodontics.

The Dental Veneer Procedure Explained

The process of getting dental veneers involves several visits to a cosmetic dentist:

  1. Preparation: A minimal amount of enamel is removed from the tooth to prepare for the site for the dental veneer. This stage is pain-free, thanks to local anesthesia.
  2. Impression Taking: An impression of the prepped teeth is made to guide the design of the veneers, ensuring a perfect fit.
  3. Temporary Veneers: While the porcelain veneers are being crafted at the dental lab, temporary ones are placed to protect the teeth and offer a glimpse of the improved smile.
  4. Final Placement: The permanent porcelain veneers are checked for fit and then securely attached to the teeth using a special bonding agent, finalizing the transformation.

Cost of Dental Veneers

While not inexpensive, dental veneers represent a valuable investment in your smile, especially when performed by experienced cosmetic dentists like the prosthodontists at our North Andover practice. We provide clear cost information and help maximize dental insurance benefits to make veneers more accessible. We also offer a buy-now-pay-later option via payment options such as CareCredit and Sunbit.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile, boosting confidence and offering a quick, minimally invasive option compared to other cosmetic procedures such as dental crowns. The results are strikingly natural and harmonious with the rest of the mouth.
