Dental veneers may seem like something reserved for Hollywood's elite, but they're actually a cosmetic dental treatment offered by Dr. veneersHarry Tatoian, your dentist in Weymouth, MA. Wondering if the flaws in your teeth could be fixed by veneers? The answer is probably "Yes!" Read on to learn more about these amazing restorations.

What are veneers?

Dental veneers are flawless, tooth-shaped sections of porcelain that are very thin - about half the width of a dime - but extremely strong. Using images and measurements from Dr. Tatoian, each veneer is crafted in a laboratory to fit perfectly over the corresponding tooth.

What dental problems do veneers treat?

The amazing thing about dental veneers from your Weymouth dentist, Dr. Tatoian, is that they aren't limited to treating only one cosmetic flaw. Veneers cover stains and discolorations, fill in chips and gaps, add length to worn-down or misshapen teeth, and correct crookedness. They are extremely versatile and offer a whole smile makeover.

Who shouldn't get veneers?

While most people who visit Dr. Tatoian's Weymouth dental office are great candidates for veneers, there are certain conditions that may not work well with the process needed to place them. For instance, a very minor area of enamel will need to be removed from each tooth in order to ensure proper and natural-looking placement of the veneers. Patients who have damaged enamel may not be able to be able to support the veneers. The health of your back teeth, in particular the way your molars line up, will also help determine if your front teeth can sustain veneers. Your Weymouth dentist will perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth before moving to the next step of veneer placement.
