What feature do you like least about your smile? Could it be the shape, color, or chipped edges of your teeth? Getting porcelain veneers in Merrimack, NH, from your dentist, Dr. James Savickas, can help refresh your smile.
What Are Veneers?
Tooth-shaped shells that can be attached to the front of your teeth to hide imperfections are called veneers. Your veneers are custom-made for you and are typically porcelain or ceramic. Installing veneers can alter your tooth size, shape, length, and color to give you the desired look.
Installing Veneers in Merrimack, NH
A consultation with your dentist is the first step to getting veneers. You will get a chance to ask all your questions and your dentist will walk you through the process. During your appointment, you'll discuss your expectations with your dentist so they can develop a plan that will help you achieve your goals.
To ensure that your veneers fit over your natural teeth perfectly, your dentist will remove a tiny amount of enamel. The tooth preparation step is irreversible, so getting veneers is a permanent procedure.
After teeth preparation, your dentist takes your dental impressions to create your custom veneers. This step guarantees that your veneers fit precisely during installation. Weeks later, when your porcelain veneers are ready, you can come in for the installation step.
Your dentist attaches your permanent porcelain veneers to your teeth with dental cement and cures them using a special light. Finally, your dentist will ensure that everything fits flawlessly and your bite is excellent. A follow-up dental appointment lets your dentist evaluate the placement of your veneers and how your gums are faring.
