Most people by the time they become adults do not have perfect natural teeth. Often teeth have become chipped, cracked, gaped, stained or discolored, especially on the front teeth, which can lead to a diminished appearance. Our cosmetic dentist in Plantsville has several ways that these teeth can be brought back to looking great again. One way that Southington Dentistry can improve the look of your teeth is through the use of dental veneers, which are thin, custom-fit shells that are made from tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain that cover the front of the tooth. A series of these veneers can be used to make all the teeth even, have the same color, appear whiter, or even fill in gaps between teeth.
Dental veneers from our cosmetic dentist in Plantsville are a more conservative, simpler approach than placing crowns on the teeth to achieve a uniform color and even smile. Crowns can involve a great deal more tooth preparation than veneers, which often require almost no tooth material removal as preparation. Veneers are a good alternative for more minor restorations than crowns, implants or dentures. The veneers are fabricated in a laboratory from impressions made by our practice and then simply glued onto the front of the tooth. The veneers will not stain making them the perfect cover for already stained teeth, or for whitening the row of front teeth. Our veneers will generally last 10 – 15 years so they are an effective and cost-efficient long-term solution to many teeth problems, both cosmetic and functional.
Our cosmetic dentist in Plantsville will determine if veneers are a good choice for the area of your teeth that is concerning you. It all starts with an evaluation by our dentist of the current state of your dental health and what is causing the problems that you are seeking to correct. Our dentist will go over every treatment option with you in detail and answer all your question so you can make an informed decision of whether dental veneers or some other restoration method is best for you. Please make an appointment with our office to begin the process of making your teeth perfect again.
