Dental Veneers Newton
Dental veneers Newton are thin shells that your dentist can attach to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are only used to cover the visible surfaces of teeth, which makes them a less invasive alternative to dental crowns.
Veneers are increasingly popular with the public. They are now the third most commonly performed dental treatment in the United States, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Dental veneers Newton are helpful in a number of situations, including:
- Correct stained teeth
- Improve teeth shape
- Conceal minor chips
Many patients also get dental veneers to correct teeth that have been worn down, often by bruxism, or teeth grinding. Veneers also make a popular choice for repairing streaks or white spots on teeth.
Patients also use veneers to change the color, length, and size of their teeth, as well as to repair teeth with minor cosmetic problems like chips or small cracks.
Getting dental veneers Newton may be worth it to you if you are looking for a relatively inexpensive treatment in comparison to other dental procedures. They can even save you some time in the chair. For example, if you need to have your teeth whitened periodically, those visits will add up to a significant period of time. On the other hand, porcelain veneers are a permanent form of treatment to whiten the teeth.
How are veneers placed?
In the case of composite veneers, the procedure can normally be completed in only one office visit. We would apply a composite material and mold it onto your teeth in a series of sheets. Once enough material has been applied, we will shape it into its final form and smooth it to a nice polish.
Porcelain dental veneers Newton are a bit different. They normally take a couple of appointments and require some removal of tooth enamel. You may be provided with some temporary veneers while your permanent ones are being readied at a dental lab. At a subsequent appointment, your dentist will bond your permanent porcelain dental veneers Newton onto your teeth to improve their appearance and enhance your smile.
Is composite or porcelain better?
Many patients seem to prefer porcelain, although it is the more expensive of the two options. It also requires some removal of tooth structure; so there is no going back with porcelain.
On the other hand, although porcelain is more expensive, it can be worth it because it is a stronger material than composite, which can more easily chip and crack. Composite can also become stained, while porcelain is extremely stain resistant.
