Dr. Ratti Handa offers treatment with dental veneers to patients in her Acton, MA office. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to each individual tooth for a natural-looking end-result. This cosmetic treatment is beneficial to patients with discolored, stained, chipped, and broken teeth.
Dr. Handa collaborates with patients in her Acton office to find solutions to dental problems that align with their budget, dental concerns, and specific goals.
Treatment with Porcelain Veneers in Acton
Dr. Handa will review your cosmetic goals, budget, and oral health needs prior to treatment. If there are any dental issues that need to be addressed, Dr. Handa and her team will treat them before applying your porcelain veneers. In order to create a proper bonding surface for the veneers, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the teeth.
Dr. Handa will take dental impressions of your teeth so that the veneers fit onto teeth properly. The specifications of your veneer shape and color will be sent to a dental lab for fabrication. When the dental veneers are complete, your teeth will be cleaned and polished.
Then, the veneers will be carefully bonded to teeth. Any final adjustments will be made to ensure that the veneers fit comfortably.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs
How often do porcelain veneers need replacing?
In most cases porcelain veneers last between 10-15 years. With proper at-home dental care, veneers should not need replacing for at least 10 years or longer.
Can dental veneers cause problems?
If placed incorrectly, bacteria may get caught underneath the veneers, which can cause infection, swelling, gum inflammation, and tenderness. Loos-fitting veneers should be addressed immediately to prevent these issues.
Do teeth rot under dental veneers?
It is possible for teeth to form cavities under veneers, which may cause tooth decay. This is uncommon, and with regularly scheduled dental visits your dentists should be able to catch a cavity before decay begins.
