Porcelain Veneers Watertown MA
What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are a wonderful option for teeth which have deteriorated due to decay, numerous fillings or abrasion. As long as there is a small “stump” of sound tooth structure remaining, a veneer can be fabricated and cemented, replacing the entire tooth beautifully.
On healthy virgin teeth, porcelain veneers are a questionable option. Before placing the veneer, the entire front surface of the tooth must be stripped of enamel to a depth of 1-1.5 mm. The tooth is forever compromised. Bleaching or direct veneers are much better for options for healthy virgin teeth, click on the links to be directed to those pages for full explanations.
