veneers NashuaAre you discouraged by a stained or worn down smile? If so, dental veneers available in Nashua may be an appropriate fix for your teeth.  Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain or a composite resin material that are bonded to the front of your teeth.  An excellent alternative to crowns, veneers provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size or shape.
Falling under the category of cosmetic dentistry, veneers create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth.  The translucent ceramic quality offered by today’s veneers provides a more natural look than what has been previously available in the past.  Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic issues. 

What are the Restorative Benefits of Veneers?

Not only are veneers esthetically pleasing, they can also serve as a functional purpose by protecting the surface of a damaged tooth.  In some cases, veneers may replace the need for a dental crown, which eliminates the need for more invasive tooth preparation.  Since dental veneers are thin, they generally require little-to-no reshaping of the tooth when bonded. 
Once your veneers are bonded into place, they are strong and durable, but require appropriate care in order to not abuse the veneers because the thin porcelain shells can damage or break.  Our Nashua area dentist may also advise you against certain habits or dietary tendencies and may recommend that you wear a protective appliance while you are sleeping, especially if you grind your teeth.  Veneers are not appropriate for everyone, but with proper consultation our office can determine the best treatment available for your smile.
