Perfect is a relative term, especially when it comes to teeth. For some, the perfect smile may consist of whiter, brighter teeth, while dental-veneerssomeone else might long to change the shape of their teeth or close up some gaps and spaces. If you have mild to moderate cosmetic imperfections/damage or would like to make general aesthetic improvements to your smile, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you. Here at Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH, Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta offer a range of cosmetic and general dentistry services (including veneers) for the entire family—read on to learn more!

 

Issues Addressed by Veneers

Even healthy and well cared for teeth are vulnerable to cosmetic damage over time. If you drink coffee, tea, red wine, or eat certain foods like dark berries and tomato sauce, your teeth will gradually look less white over time, even if you brush and floss every day (pro tip: you should!)

In other situations, maybe you chipped a tooth and never got around to fixing it, or have a gap between one or more teeth that makes you feel self-conscious every time you smile. Maybe everything is generally fine, but you just wish your teeth were more even or a different shape.

For all of these cases, veneers may be the solution!

 

How Veneers Work

Veneers are custom designed to match tooth enamel for a natural and authentic looking result. Made of a razor-thin layer of translucent porcelain, the veneer is bonded onto the surface of the tooth and molded into the desired size and shape. in order to ensure a natural fit, your dentist will remove a thin layer of tooth enamel to fit the veneer.

Veneers are not appropriate in every situation, and if you have any oral health issues like gum disease or a cavity, the dentist will treat them first before applying your new restorations. Once in place, veneers are cared for just like your natural teeth and can last anywhere from five to ten years or longer in many cases.
