If you have cosmetic teeth problems that you would like to have corrected, you may be a good candidate for getting porcelain veneers. Many patients come to our dental practice, Amesbury Family Dental, to have their smile problems corrected. Oftentimes this can be done using Merrimac veneers, when the smile problems are purely cosmetic in nature.
Our dentist, Dr. Sanford H. Greenberg, will be happy to meet with you and let you know which the best way is to fix your smile problems. If teeth are cosmetically damaged but need to have their function improved as well, the best solution may be to get porcelain crowns. However, if your smile problems are purely cosmetic in nature, they may be able to be easily treated using Merrimac veneers. Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells which are made to cover only the front portion of the tooth. The veneers are perfectly color-match to the adjacent teeth so no one is ever able to tell that you are wearing them. While veneers are very thin, they are also extremely strong and will last for many years. Porcelain veneers are permanently attached to teeth. A patient may need only one porcelain veneer, or several to correct a larger smile problem.
Among the many different types of cosmetic problems that Merrimac veneers can fix are: teeth that are too short; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are severely discolored and cannot be corrected using dental whitening method; and many other cosmetic problems. Porcelain veneers are considered to be a cost-effective way to fix smile problems. Getting porcelain veneers also does not call for any type of dental surgery. The patient can be getting porcelain veneers and actually remain comfortable without getting any type of anesthesia whatsoever. If you would like to meet with our dentist to see if porcelain veneers are a good way of improving your smile, and helping you to attain the smile of your dreams, contact us for an appointment.
