Dental Veneers in Woburn, MA
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or composite material used to cover the surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They are custom-made to fit your natural teeth and can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues, such as discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, and gaps between teeth. Veneers provide a natural-looking, long-lasting solution for a beautiful, healthy smile.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Composite Veneers
Porcelain veneers and composite veneers are two popular options when it comes to improving the appearance of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded onto the surface of your natural tooth structure. They reflect light in the same way natural teeth do, giving your smile a more natural appearance. In addition, they tend to be more durable than composite veneers and can last up to 15 years with proper care.
Composite veneers are made from a composite resin material that is applied directly to the tooth’s surface. They can be used to correct minor dental issues and are less expensive than porcelain veneers. However, they may not last as long as their porcelain counterparts and can become stained over time.

When you visit our office, we will provide a thorough examination of your mouth and take X-rays to assess your dental health. Our dentists will discuss all treatment options available and help you decide on the best plan for your needs.
If you choose veneers, our dentists will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. This is necessary to ensure that the veneers fit properly and look natural. Impressions will then be taken of your teeth, which are used to create custom veneers.
A temporary veneer may be placed while your veneers are being made so that your teeth have the desired shape and look. When the permanent veneers are ready, they will be securely bonded onto the tooth surface.
Once the procedure is complete, our dentists will provide instructions on how to care for your veneers so that you can enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. These include avoiding foods and drinks that can stain the veneers, such as coffee and wine, and brushing and flossing regularly.
