Porcelain Veneers Provide Outstanding Cosmetic Results
Dr. Teddi Olszewski offers porcelain veneers at her Northampton practice. This cosmetic dentistry solution uses custom-made shells of porcelain to conceal minor imperfections. Dr. Olszewski will provide a complete pre-treatment consultation that will allow you to thoroughly explain your goals and even preview what your smile will look like following treatment. She will then work with our partner dental lab to provide veneers that are a natural-looking match for your teeth. Find out if veneers are right for you.

What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain made to match the shape and color of your teeth. Although they are about the thickness of an eggshell, they are incredibly durable, and with proper care, they can last many years. Dr. Olszewski will apply the veneers to the front of your teeth, and they can conceal several cosmetic issues at once, including cracks, chips, and severe stains. They can also make small or misshapen teeth look more consistent, or close gaps in your smile. In some cases, they can even serve as “instant orthodontics,” making one or more slightly crooked teeth look straight.
Veneers require at least two appointments with Dr. Olszewski. During the first visit, she will evaluate your oral health, listen to your goals, and determine your candidacy for porcelain veneers. Dr. Olszewski will remove a fine layer of enamel from the surface of the teeth you wish to treat, making room for the veneers. She will take impressions of your prepared teeth teeth and send them to our partner dental lab. Next, Dr. Olszewski will perform temporary cosmetic bonding to show you what your final results will look like. You will be able to wear these temporary veneers out of the office, and you can provide feedback so the dentist can provide permanent veneers that meet your goals.
Skilled ceramists will use the impressions of your teeth, along with your input and feedback, to create veneers that blend seamlessly with your smile and meet your goals. When the veneers arrive back at our office, you will return to have them placed. The dentist will lightly etch the surface of your teeth with a mild acid solution. This procedure is comfortable, and it creates a stronger bonding surface for the veneers. Finally, Dr. Olszewski will check the fit of the veneers, make any necessary adjustments, and attach the veneers to your teeth with dental cement.
