Porcelain veneers have become a popular treatment option for addressing cosmetic concerns or damaged teeth. They can be custom designed to provide either a subtle or dramatic transformation for your smile.
We offer this cosmetic dental procedure at our Russell Street dentist office in Worcester, MA. Our cosmetic dentists are experienced and highly trained. We work with patients to help them achieve the smile they desire and to improve their overall dental health in the process.
Porcelain Veneers: What To Expect
Porcelain veneers are made of an ultra thin ceramic material that reflects light much like a natural tooth, offering results that are comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. The high-quality materials used to fabricate your custom dental veneers is also highly durable and stain resistant. With proper dental care and good oral hygiene, most patients can expect their porcelain veneers to last a lifetime.
Consultation and examination: Dr. Gauthier, or Dr. Murray will meet with you to discuss your concerns, goals and budget. Your dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your entire occlusal system (teeth, gums and jaw joints) to look for any signs of instability that may compromise your results.
Preparation: Next, your Russell Street dentist will prepare the tooth or teeth to accommodate the porcelain veneers. It will be necessary to remove a small amount of the natural tooth structure to allow adequate space for the porcelain veneers to fit inside your mouth. Impressions of the teeth will also be taken for use in creating your porcelain veneers.
Final restoration: At the final visit, your Worcester dentist will place the permanent dental restorations, make any necessary adjustments for fit, and secure them to the surface of the teeth. Your final result will be a healthy, comfortable smile that also supports lasting dental health.
