It's easy to become disheartened when the smile we see in the mirror is not the one we wished we had. But know that you can do something about it, your dentist has at their disposal a variety of treatments that can improve your smile. Such as dental veneers, which can radically transform it. For more information reach out to your Burlington, MA, dentist Dr. Paul Epstein.


What They Can Correct

Dental veneers are an excellent option for those looking to overcome a variety of smile imperfections. Such as slight gaps, teeth that are misshapen due to injury or wear, or are crooked. Veneers allow you to overcome these via a single treatment.

They are also a great choice for those with teeth that do not take to professional whitening.

While veneers can treat several conditions, for anything more severe your dentist may recommend alternate treatments. A visit with your dentist will help you explore everything available to you, taking into consideration your expectations and what may need to be corrected.


How They Work

Dental veneers are thin but very strong and durable caps that are securely bonded to your teeth similar to how a crown would be. But because they are thin not as much of your tooth has to be removed to perform the procedure. This means, among other things, that anesthesia may not be required during your visit. Veneers are however a permanent treatment since your teeth will need their protection going forward.

But the result is a full smile makeover as veneers are made to match, and often improve on, the appearance of your natural teeth.

You may still be advised against biting hard foods, such as ice, hard candy, corn kernels, among others, as these threaten to crack even your natural teeth. Veneers, however, can be repaired or even replaced by your dentist if damaged.
