The natural processes of aging and enjoying dark foods and beverages can dull the luster of the teeth in your smile. If the teeth in your smile also have small chips or old visible fillings it could leave you wanting to explore the various ways to restore the smile you’ve always wanted.

One of the more popular and effective options for improving a smile with chipped as well as stained teeth like to have Quincy Center Dental Associates restore your smile with custom porcelain dental veneers.

Dental veneers are made from a custom shaped and shaded porcelain material, that is designed to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. They are custom crafted in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth, so as to be indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel Dental veneers can be shaded to appear just like natural enamel, only whiter.

During your first appointment, your Quincy Center Dental Associates dentist will examine all of the teeth in your smile to make sure there you have sufficiently strong enamel on each tooth. If you have one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer they might advise you to have the entire enamel layer of the tooth replaced with a porcelain crown.

At the end of the appointment the dentist will form an impression of the teeth in your smile, which goes to dental lab that custom forms your new dental veneers.

Later we will call you back in for the second appointment to install your new dental veneers once the lab has completed them. To install them on the teeth in your smile, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.

If you are interested in being fitted for dental veneers, we invite you to call Quincy Center Dental Associates at 617-934-4914 to schedule an appointment.
