For decades veneers were a Hollywood secret. Celebrities and models wore them. These days we offer star-quality veneers in Amherst!

If you have worn, slightly crooked, or discolored teeth, porcelain dental veneers can dramatically conceal these aesthetic issues. Veneers can also help with gummy smiles and small gaps between teeth.

If you’re considering dental veneers, your dentist in Amherst examines your teeth and gums to make sure veneers are a good option for you.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shields that go across the front of your teeth. You can opt for a single veneer or several, depending on your smile desires.

The final result is a symmetrical smile that you’ll be proud to show the world.

What Is the Dental Veneer Process?

If you’re ready to enhance your smile dramatically, contact our dental office to schedule an exam with your Amherst dentist. During this exam, your dentist provides an exam and helps you plan your smile with veneers.

Your dentist bonds veneers to the front of your teeth after removing a portion of the enamel. Because your dentist removes enamel before bonding your veneers, this cosmetic dental option is considered permanent.

Caring for Permanent Veneers

With proper care, dental veneers in Amherst can last for decades. However, you mustn’t use your veneers to bite through hard or tough foods. You should also never use them as a tool to twist off a soda cap or carry a heavy object—this advice extends to natural teeth as well.

Should you break a veneer, you should replace it just as you would replace or restore a broken or lost tooth.
