Your cosmetic dentist at Waterbury Smiles will create the personalized plan you need to turn the smile of your dreams into reality.
What Are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a customized shell that’s bonded to the front side of a tooth to enhance its color, size, and shape. However, the goal of the procedure is to improve a patient's smile overall.
Bonding veneers to the teeth visible when smiling can correct several issues. They are often recommended to fix chipped teeth, cover stains, or close gaps.
Modern veneers are made of porcelain because it closely mimics enamel for naturally-looking results. It also allows veneers to be thinner, so less enamel is removed during the bonding process. You'll maintain more of your tooth structure to preserve your smile.
Although veneers are effective, they aren’t right for everyone. Your cosmetic dentist will examine your mouth to create a personalized strategy to enhance your smile.
The Process of Getting Veneers
After an initial consultation and any preliminary procedures, you'll be scheduled for the first phase of your treatment.
Your cosmetic dentist may administer a local numbing agent, but it isn't always necessary. Your teeth will be cleaned before a small amount of enamel is removed. This ensures the veneer fits your tooth like a glove. They will then take an impression of your mouth to get the information necessary to create your veneers.
It can take the dental lab a couple of weeks to make them, so you'll need temporary veneers to protect your teeth while you wait. This also allows you to "try on" your new smile.
After your veneers are sent back to our office, you'll return for a second appointment to bond them to your teeth. You'll walk out of our office with a flawless smile that can last for a decade or longer with the right care. A good oral hygiene routine at home and regular care from a dentist will ensure you get the most from your investment.

- Cosmetic Bonding – – Quick and affordable, it addresses minor flaws and can reshape damaged teeth. Yet, its cost-effectiveness comes with the need for periodic touch-ups.
