Dental Veneers Haverhill MA
Dental veneers correct gaps, stained, chipped, and misshapen teeth. Your custom-made veneers are thin laminates that are color-matched for the most natural look. Dental veneers are made of either porcelain or composite-resin material. Porcelain veneers are more natural looking and cost more. Composite-resin material is more affordable – but unlike porcelain – they can break more easily. Choosing the veneer material can be better determined during your examination and consultation. We will discuss the pros and cons of each and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
How much is the procedure?
Dental Veneers Haverhill MA | A dental veneer procedure will vary in cost for each patient due to different complexities involved. During your consultation, we will have a better understanding of what your unique procedure will involve and confirm an accurate cost.
What should I consider before choosing veneers?
Dental veneers require permanent tooth enamel loss to properly fit and attach the veneer. If this concerns you, composite-resin material may be a better choice as it involves less tooth enamel loss than porcelain. Also, dental veneers last up to 10 years. At that point, you will need to replace them. Patients that suffer from bruxism or teeth clenching and grinding need to wear a mouth guard to avoid damaging them.
How should I treat my new smile after the procedure?
Dental veneers are delicate but you can eat and drink relatively normally. Avoid hard food and candy. If you choose composite-resin, keep coffee and red wine to a minimum to avoid staining. Maintain a healthy dental care routine. This helps remove stains and avoids damage from tooth decay and gum disease. Also, continue to visit us for your scheduled exams and cleanings.
