Find out how porcelain veneers could drastically improve your smile’s appearance.

Are you interested in getting dental veneers? Of course, before you decide to take the plunge you may be wondering if they are the ideal cosmetic treatment to fit your smile needs. Here in Mystic, CT, our family dentist Dr. James Watts has been crafting gorgeous, tailored smiles with the help of dental veneers. Here’s what you should know.

What are porcelain veneers?

There is a reason so many people are turning to dental veneers to revamp their smiles. Veneers offer a natural and realistic way to alter the shape, size, and color of an individual’s teeth without having to undergo invasive dentistry.

Veneers can be designed from porcelain or composite resin; however, porcelain is often the most popular choice because it reflects light the same way natural tooth enamel does. Each veneer is customized to fit you, based on impressions taken of your smile, so they offer the perfect size and shape that you desire each and every time.

Before veneers can be placed we will need to shave off some enamel from the front of your teeth. Not much enamel will need to be removed to accommodate the veneers, just enough to make room for your new restorations so they look perfectly natural.

What makes them so versatile?

One of the biggest benefits of dental veneers is that they are one of the most versatile cosmetic options we offer here in Mystic, CT. These thin porcelain shells can do so much for the appearance of your smile, as well as your confidence. Veneers can hide a variety of imperfections such as,

  • Chips and cracks
  • Discolorations
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Minor overlapping or crowding
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth

Pretty much any cosmetic issue you can think of, dental veneers can probably mask it. Veneers are very thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide imperfections. In some cases, applying veneers to your teeth can also give you a straighter smile. If you are someone who only has a mildly misaligned or crooked smile, and you don’t want to wear braces to get a straighter smile, dental veneers might be able to help.
