Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are the perfect solution for people who have slightly crooked tooth, chipped teeth, or discolored teeth. Veneers are also used to fill in spaces between the teeth. They are a modern and popular technique used in cosmetic dentistry to deal with cosmetic problems that most people commonly face. Our skilled dentists also recommend veneers in place of full crown coverage which helps in the conservation of tooth structure.

Dental veneers are thin shells which are made of composite or porcelain material. They are made according to the requirements of the patient either by a dentist or at a dental laboratory. Porcelain veneers are the most preferred material of veneers. They are attached to the front side of the tooth. The main purpose of these veneers is to improve the overall health and appearance of your teeth. They look completely natural and are unnoticeable.

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of ceramic. Although veneers are available in composite materials, most people prefer porcelain veneers due to their functionality and the natural appearance they bring to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are slightly costlier than composite veneers, but they are definitely worth it. They are the right solution for a wide range of dental problems. They are extremely thin and are custom-made for patients with different dental concerns. As they are thinner yet stronger and more similar to the appearance of natural teeth, they are the most preferred type of veneers by many people.


  • Tooth enamel and porcelain are similar in a way as they are both white and translucent. It is therefore the reason they react to light in similar ways. When your tooth enamel is
    replaced to porcelain veneers, it gives you a natural-looking smile.
  • Porcelain is a ceramic material, so all the stain-producing products roll off the surface of your veneers just like if they were glass. As they are naturally stain resistant, you do
    not have to worry about their maintenance.
  • Since porcelain veneers are extremely thin, they can be applied with minimal invasion. This means that very little portion of your natural tooth has to be removed to apply porcelain
  • In almost all cases, very little or no anesthesia is required to apply porcelain veneers.
  • As porcelain veneers can be made according to the preferences and requirements of the patient, you can discuss with our Boston & Arlington, MA dentists to determine the right shade and shape of the veneers that you would like to have.
  • Apart from the cosmetic benefits that these porcelain veneers offer, they also act as tooth enamel for those who have extremely sensitive teeth.
