Dental Veneers in Brookfield, CT

Want to improve your smile? You might look into getting dental veneers at the Dental Team in Brookfield, CT. Veneers are wafer-thin coverings that fit right over the front part of your teeth. They look and act natural, so you can enjoy having a smile that you’re proud of. This can help your self-confidence because smiling is an important part of your physical appearance. Veneers can help with several problems.

  • Covering up stains that whitening and bleaching haven’t had an effect on
  • Fixing up worn or chipped teeth
  • Offering appropriate shaping to misshaped or crooked teeth
  • Helping with uneven spacings or unnaturally large gaps

Veneers are created from either a composite resin material or porcelain. The dentist at the Dental Team will help you in picking out which material is best suited to create your veneers. Each type has its own perks.

Composite Resin Veneers

Composite resin veneers are bonded to your teeth using a tooth-colored material. The perks can include:

  • Less enamel will need to be removed
  • Only one visit is usually needed
  • It’s more affordable
  • They’re easy to fix

Once one or more teeth are ready, your dentist will begin sculpting and bonding the resin onto your teeth with a color shade that’s closest in color to the rest of your smile. A laser or ultraviolet light then hardens the composite. Afterward, they are smoothed and polished.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are created specifically for your teeth. The benefits include:

  • Higher durability that makes them last longer
  • Looking natural on your tooth’s surface
  • Minimal enamel removal compared to crowns
  • Less likely to stain

To get the teeth ready for a veneer, the dentist will start by taking off a tiny amount of enamel off the front and sides of your teeth. This will create just enough room for the veneers to stay on and look completely natural. The dentist will then make a mold of your teeth. They’ll choose the right shade of porcelain before sending the impression to a lab. The technical will create the veneer specifically for you. Then the veneer will be put on, and everything will be double-checked. Your teeth are cleaned, and the veneers are permanently bonded into place.
