At Beacon Dental Group in Boston, Massachusetts, we understand that not all patients are the same, so it is our priority to provide our patients with many different treatment options when it comes to restoring or enhancing their teeth. Because of new dental technology, we can offer our patients a way to cover permanently damaged teeth while completely changing the appearance of your whole smile with veneers.

Veneers Process 

A veneer is a thin covering made from dental material either composite resin or porcelain, that is shaped to look like the outer surface of the tooth or teeth you are covering. Dental veneers are artificial coverings made to specifically fit your teeth in a dental lab. 

Once you’ve discussed with our dentist and decided veneers are the best option for you, the veneer process will start! 

At your first appointment, we will take impressions of all your teeth to make molds from them. These molds are then sent to the dental lab with the specific details of how you would like to change your teeth. Veneers can change multiple characteristics of your teeth such as: 

  • Closing gaps 
  • Elongating naturally shorter teeth 
  • Covering minor or major chips in teeth 
  • Making crooked teeth straight 
  • Changing the overall coloring and shade of your teeth 

After it has been decided all that you want to be changed, the dental lab will work to complete veneers that fit your wants and needs. At this appointment, the dentist will also buffer the front surface of your teeth preparing you for when the veneers will be set. You will be given temporary veneers or coverings for your teeth until the next appointment. 

At your 2nd appointment, which is the last in the veneer process, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth using strong dental material!
