Are veneers right for me? Learn from your Providence, RI dentists.

Have you ever wished there was a simple way to improve your smile? Veneers offer an easy way to transform your smile without veneersextensive dental work. Your Providence, RI, dentists, Marc Page, DMD, and Lawrence Page, DMD, are here to explain how veneers can help you get the smile of your dreams.

Veneers hide a multitude of cosmetic dental issues

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic that cover the front surfaces of your teeth. They can be placed on one tooth or all of them. Veneers are a good choice if:

  • You're concerned about gaps between your teeth.
  • Your teeth are chipped or eroded.
  • One or more of your teeth are discolored from tetracycline use, large fillings or other causes.
  • You want to whiten your entire smile.
  • You want to improve the appearance of a crooked or unusually shaped tooth.

The veneer process is simple

After your initial visit to your dentist to discuss your treatment plan, you'll return two more times. During the first visit, he'll lightly file each tooth that will receive a veneer. Removing a small amount of enamel ensures that your new veneers will fit perfectly without being bulky. After filing your teeth, your dentist will make an impression of them, which a dental laboratory will use to create your custom-made veneers.

During the second visit, he'll check the fit of your veneers and make any adjustments before permanently attaching them to your teeth. You'll leave the office with a brand new smile.

Veneer care is easy

After you receive your new veneers, you'll just brush and floss as your normally do. It's best to avoid abrasive toothpaste, as these toothpastes may scratch veneers. Veneers are very durable, but they can break if you bite very hard foods or use your teeth to open packages.

Do you think that veneers just may be the perfect solution to your cosmetic dental issue? Call your Providence, RI, dentists, Marc Page, DMD, and Lawrence Page, DMD, at (401) 421-9350 to schedule a consultation. Change your smile with veneers!
