Call or schedule an appointment online today to find out if dental veneers are right for you.
Veneers are thin ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin shells that your dentist bonds to the fronts of your teeth to create a beautiful, symmetrical smile. Veneers cover a wide range of dental imperfections, including:
Veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth precisely and to match any surrounding untreated teeth. They’re available in a wide range of shades to provide a natural appearance.
Additionally, veneers are durable and can last for up to 10 years with proper care. Veneers are stain-resistant and require less tooth enamel removal than dental crowns.
If you want to improve your smile, your first step is to make an appointment at Integrity Dental of Greenwich. Your dentist examines your teeth and talks to you about your goals and expectations for cosmetic dental treatments. They will advise you if veneers are the best cosmetic dental treatment for you.
Your veneering appointment begins by removing a thin layer of enamel from the teeth that are going to be covered with veneers. This creates space for the veneers to cover your teeth and fit flush against the neighboring teeth ensuring a natural appearance.
Then, your dentist takes molds or detailed digital images of your teeth. These images or molds are sent to a dental lab, where they’re used to make your veneers fit and match your teeth precisely. Before you leave your first appointment, your dentist applies temporary veneers to protect your teeth while your permanent veneers are prepared.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to Integrity Dental of Greenwich for their final placement. Your dentist removes your temporary veneers and applies your custom-made veneers in their place. They carefully check the fit and your bite before permanently bonding the shells to the fronts of your teeth.
Dental veneers are suitable for almost everyone. If you’re in good health overall but are unhappy about the appearance of your smile, veneers can be an excellent choice. If your teeth are too weak or damaged to support veneers, your dentist can recommend a different treatment.
The team at Integrity Dental of Greenwich can recommend dental crowns as an alternative to veneers. They offer the latest in porcelain technology such as IPS e-max® porcelain crowns and Colgate® zirconia crowns, which not only cover damaged or misshapen teeth but also provide protection and support for your teeth.
