It’s another beautiful day in Massachusetts and you’re ready to walk through your favorite park. You hop out of bed, head to the bathroom, and look in the mirror. Maybe it’s just the fluorescent lighting, but you notice your teeth aren’t as white as they used to be.
On top of that, you can’t ignore the gaps that separate the rest. If you’re looking to fix this, you’ll want to consider porcelain veneers from your cosmetic dentist in Medford. There, your dentist can provide a high-quality smile makeover unlike any other.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are essentially wafer-thin covers designed to go on top of your existing teeth. They are made of porcelain as this material matches the color and hue of natural teeth the closest. Today, it’s never been easier for dentists to create them, even in just one visit.
Veneers have been around for many decades, but today’s veneers are a significant improvement compared to the ones in the past. Now, they are more affordable, easier to place, and more effective at hiding imperfections in your smile. The benefits of veneers are quite broad, so you’ll want to take each of them into account.
What Benefits Do They Provide?
Porcelain veneers are ideal for patients looking to:
- Cover cracks, chips, and breaks in your smile
- Hide discoloration that can’t be fixed by whitening or regular brushing
- Cover gaps in between teeth
- Make teeth look more naturally straight
Veneers are popular because of how versatile and effective they really are. It’s common for veneers to solve multiple issues at a time, saving you money that other restorative methods may not address. They’re also meant to look and function like regular teeth, so you don’t have to practice any additional maintenance to keep them looking bright. While it is common to have your enamel worn down to make room for the veneer, your dentist in Medford can accommodate you with a less-invasive alternative if you so choose.
What If I Don’t Want to Remove My Tooth Enamel?
Unlike traditional veneers, no-preparation veneers require no removal or shaving of your natural teeth to fit. These are meant to bond directly to your natural teeth. Just like traditional veneers however, they can be shaped and color-adjusted to match the rest of your teeth, without looking so perfect that they look unnatural. This what some people may call “chicklet teeth” or teeth that’s so perfect it fails to match your existing teeth.
Don’t hesitate to change your smile forever. Schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Medford today to see which porcelain veneer is right for you!
