Are you looking to improve the appearance of your front teeth? Dental veneers are widely used to improve the appearance of front teeth and are a much more conservative option than a full dental crown. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of staining, large gaps, large fillings, chipped teeth, or overall shape. Veneers are a thin covering over the front and biting end of the tooth used to restore the beauty of a smile. Over the years Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta have helped many patients who opted for veneers and now have the confidence to smile again. All you have to do is schedule your first appointment with Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH.

Dental veneers are made in a lab from long-lasting porcelain materials. The shade can be chosen to any desired color to whiten the appearance of your smile. Dental veneers are usually placed on the anterior, or front teeth, where the chewing forces are not as hard as the back teeth. The process of placing veneers is relatively easy, requiring only two dental appointments. In some cases, only one appointment is needed. It depends on the fabrication process.

The first appointment is to “prep” the teeth and takes an impression to be sent to a lab to fabricate the veneers. Veneers are fairly conservative in the preparation as it requires a small amount of space to be created on the face (front), bottom, and sides of each tooth to allow space for the veneer to be placed and look natural. You will leave the office with temporary veneers for the next week or two while the permanent veneers are being made.

The second appointment is to place the veneers and make minor adjustments if needed. What a difference it makes in the appearance of the teeth! If you’re interested in learning more, give Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta of Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH, a call today!

Find out what dental veneers can do to perfect your smile.

Okay, so your teeth aren’t exactly perfect. Who’s are? Most people have some flaws in their smile, whether it’s a gap between their front teeth, slightly uneven teeth, or discolorations. Don’t worry!  These are issues that our Nashua, NH, dentists, Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta, see often. If you are looking to completely revamp your smile with the help of cosmetic dentistry, here’s what dental veneers can do for you.

Give Your Whole Smile a Makeover

Yes, there are a variety of ways in which our Nashua, NH, dental team can help craft the perfect smile, but dental veneers are truly the best cosmetic option if you are looking to drastically improve your smile as a whole. These thin shells are made from medical-grade porcelain that mimics the look of real tooth enamel.

The shells are bonded to the front of each tooth to improve the overall appearance of your smile while also hiding problem areas that make you self-conscious. Of course, while veneers can give you a completely new smile, this treatment can also be used on just a few teeth that stand out due to certain flaws.

Dental Veneers Can Hide Most Imperfections

Since veneers completely cover the front surface of your smile, this cosmetic restoration has the ability to conceal a lot of dental imperfections including:

  • Internal stains and deep discolorations
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowding or slightly crooked teeth
  • Teeth that are pitted or have an uneven texture
  • Oddly shaped, malformed, or uneven teeth
  • Worn or short teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Getting Veneers is Simple

Most patients can get their brand-new smiles over the course of 2-3 visits. First, we will take impressions of your mouth and send them to a dental lab so they can craft your custom veneers. Next, we will shave off some tooth enamel from the front of the teeth that will be fitted with veneers.

The dental lab will craft your veneers within about four to six weeks, after which you will come into the office so that we can bond your veneers permanently in place. If you are looking for a minimally invasive way to revamp and improve your smile, then dental veneers may be right for you.

If you are ready to have a smile that you can feel confident in, then it’s time to talk with your Nashua, NH, dental team to find out if dental veneers are right for you. Call Dr. Guerriero and Dr. Colletta today at (603) 882-3727 to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
