Veneers are thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain. Prior to placement, they resemble a fingernail. Your skilled Meriden dentist will attach these veneers to the front facing surfaces of teeth to transform your smile.
Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dentistry solution for patients with chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in their smiles. However, no treatment is right for everyone. Some examples of patients who might want to consider veneers include:
Porcelain veneers are placed in about two treatment visits. We’ll numb the area around the teeth to be treated to prevent any discomfort or sensitivity. Then, a small amount of surface tooth enamel will be removed to allow the veneer to lay flat within the natural smile line. Next, we capture bite impressions and use them to create a smile design that will be sent to our dental lab where your custom veneer is crafted. Finally, we place a temporary to protect your prepared teeth. Once we receive your custom veneer, you’ll return to the office so we can replace the temporary with your custom crafted veneer.
You may need to make a few minor changes to your routine. You’ll still need to brush and floss daily and visit our team regularly. However, we may encourage you to switch to a softer toothbrush and less abrasive toothpaste, but otherwise, your oral hygiene routine will remain the same.
At Meriden Dental, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to transform any flawed teeth into gorgeous smiles, but porcelain veneers are a popular solution. Some of the benefits you can look forward to when selecting porcelain veneers include the following:
