Veneers Q&A



What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a custom cosmetic solution for dental imperfections. Also called laminates, veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain placed on the fronts of teeth. They’re a popular, permanent treatment to improve the look of chips, cracks, and other cosmetic flaws.

Porcelain veneers come in a range of shades, and the material mimics natural tooth enamel for a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, which means it’s easy to maintain a brighter smile for years to come.

Veneers are a minimally invasive way to dramatically transform your smile. When you get veneers at Greenwich Dentistry, the process is customized from start to finish. Veneers can give you a straighter, whiter smile that enhances your natural good looks.

Are veneers a good option for me?

If there’s something about the way your teeth look that bothers you, it’s time to consider veneers. The dental team at Greenwich Dentistry regularly recommends veneers for men and women who want personalized cosmetic solutions.

Veneers could be a good choice for you if you’re bothered by:

  • Chips or cracks
  • Gapped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Short or gummy teeth

From misalignments and damage to normal wear-and-tear, veneers are a minimally invasive treatment to improve the look of common smile imperfections. Veneers can be applied to all your front teeth, or just a single tooth. They’re a customizable treatment that can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

How are veneers applied?

At your first appointment, the team administers local anesthetic. Your dentist buffs away a tiny amount of enamel to ensure your veneers sit flush against your teeth and then takes an impression of your teeth.

Your veneers are designed to fit your teeth and your aesthetic goals for your smile. Together, you and your dentist select a color, size, and shape. After your veneers are created in a dental lab, you’ll return to the office to have them placed.

Your dentist permanently affixes your veneers one by one with a special cement. They trim them and evaluate your bite and your smile to give you a picture-perfect look.

Once you get veneers, they don’t require special care. You can continue flossing and brushing your teeth as usual, and be sure to visit your dentist for preventive cleanings twice a year.

Veneers can transform the look of teeth without the need for more invasive procedures. If you’re curious about what veneers could do for your smile, book a consultation online or call the office today.
