What are Porcelain Veneers?

Made from high-grade ceramics, porcelain veneers in Worchester are thin shells that fit directly over the front-facing teeth. In just two visits, the permanently bonded fixtures deliver a beautifully-remade smile. Here are the steps to the procedure:

  • For patients with a history of tooth sensitivity, we’ll first administer numbing medication to ensure a comfortable treatment process.
  • We’ll remove a thin layer of enamel to allow the veneers to fit properly into your smile line.
  • After capturing bite impressions, we’ll send them to our lab partners who will fabricate a permanent set of veneers.
  • We’ll place temporary veneers to protect your teeth during the fabrication process.
  • When the final set of veneers are ready, we’ll invite you back to our office for their permanent placement.

What Makes Porcelain Veneers So Effective?

One of the reasons that veneers are so effective is their construction from durable ceramic material, which creates an attractive smile that will last for years to come. Not only do veneers upgrade the appearance of your teeth, but they are also highly resistant to staining. The procedure, which we can typically complete in just two visits, saves you time by delivering results that look like they took months of treatment to achieve.

All that is required is for you to take care of your veneers like you would any other teeth. By brushing and flossing at least two times a day, you can prevent leftover debris from settling on the teeth adjacent to your veneers. Thus, you’ll be able to maintain an even shade throughout your front-facing teeth.

You’ll also want to avoid eating hard foods like nuts and seeds, as they could cause the veneers to crack. Additionally, it should be a priority to visit your dentist every six months for cleanings and examinations to contribute to your smile’s longevity.

Are You Eligible for Porcelain Veneers?

The time has come to enjoy the confidence boost and happiness that comes along with having your smile flaws resolved. To request a visit with a dentist in Worchester, contact us today at Universal Dental Group!

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

The flaws or blemishes in your smile won’t go away on their own. Don’t fret, though, because you can do something about them by having porcelain veneers placed. To find out what a set of veneers can do for you and to finally achieve the look that you’ve always wanted, contact us today at University Dental Group to schedule an initial visit. Meanwhile, read on to get answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the procedure.

How much does it cost to have porcelain veneers placed?

The porcelain veneers process is completely customized, so to get an accurate estimate for receiving care, pay us a visit at our Worcester office so that one of our cosmetic dentists can assess your smile. Then, based on your specific desires and needs, we can develop a treatment plan just for you.

Why choose porcelain veneers over braces?

Because the placement of porcelain veneers helps to mask smile flaws like teeth misalignment or gaps, the procedure can sometimes be used as an alternative to metal braces. When comparing the two procedures, though, it’s best to keep in mind that braces provide orthodontic correction, while veneers are designed to mask and not fix bite issues.

After we determine your eligibility, we can completely revamp your smile in just two-to-three visits to our office.

Can I have my teeth whitened with veneers?

The surface of porcelain veneers is designed to prevent stains. However, if you attempt to have your teeth whitened after receiving treatment, your veneers can be left with a tarnished, matte finish that causes an unwanted contrast in the appearance of your teeth.

The remedy, then, is to have your teeth whitened before your cosmetic dentist permanently places a set of veneers.

What can I do for my veneers to last longer?

With proper care, a set of porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years. Here are some of the steps you can take to ensure the greatest longevity:

  • Brush and floss your teeth at least two times a day.
  • Avoid consuming highly-pigmented foods and beverages like soy sauce, tea, coffee and wine.
  • Avoid using your teeth as tools to pry open packages or to trim your fingernails.
  • Maintain regular dental visits for cleanings and examinations.
