Dentist in Braintree, MA - Allen Dental Associates, Craig Allen DMD, Lauren Handwerk DMD - Veneer treatment information
Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, ceramic veneers that are produced by a dental laboratory and resin-based composite veneers. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.
Veneers are prescribed for damaged, discolored, or broken teeth
The tooth is prepared by eliminating surface structure
After fabrication the veneer is cemented to the prepared tooth
Veneers restore natural beauty and health of teeth
