They are a popular option in cosmetic dentistry because they are very versatile in their uses but still give patients good value for their cost.
You can have Porcelain veneers from Enfield Family Dental applied to address a number of issues, such as:
Your dentist will examine your smile, discuss your goals with you, and carefully design the best treatment for you.
It will take two separate appointments to see your dentist in ENFIELD, CT to have veneers applied – once to have the teeth prepared, and once to have the veneers attached. To prepare the teeth receiving veneers, your dentist at ENFIELD FAMILY DENTAL will shave down a small portion of the enamel. The advantage of using veneers instead of dental crowns is that much less tooth structure needs to be removed since the shells will only be attached to the front of the teeth. A local anesthetic will be applied during this appointment to minimize any pain or discomfort.
Your dentist will then take an impression of the prepared teeth. The impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where the veneers will be created. You may have temporary veneers placed before you leave our office to keep the teeth protected until your next visit.
