Dental Veneers in Brookfield, CT
Stains, chipped teeth, and gaps are some of the most common reasons why people in Brookfield, CT, feel uncomfortable with their smiles. At DiBella Dental Care, Dr. Echavarria specializes in treatments that correct cosmetic problems with your smile, such as dental veneers.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or composite resin that are attached to the surface of your natural teeth. After the veneers are applied, it looks like you have a natural, perfect smile.
Porcelain veneers are the most expensive option, but they resist stains very well and last for a long time. Porcelain veneers cannot be repaired. If you damage the veneer, Dr. Echavarria will need to replace it. Composite resin veneers require less of the enamel to be removed, and this is the most affordable option. These types of dental veneers can be repaired if you damage them.
What Can Dental Veneers Correct?
Dental veneers correct several common cosmetic issues that people in Brookfield, CT, have with their smiles.
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth that are worn down from grinding
What Is the Procedure for Getting Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers require some of the enamel to be removed from the surface of your natural teeth. This helps the dental adhesive to hold the veneer in place. After Dr. Echavarria removes the enamel, she applies the adhesive, and positions the veneer on the tooth. She checks the fit and shape of the veneer. She uses special tools to refine the look and fit of the dental veneers.
What to Expect After Dental Veneers
You can eat normally after your dental veneers. Brushing and flossing are the same with veneers as with your natural teeth. You should occasionally check around the edges of the veneers to look for gaps. If it seems that the veneer is coming loose or damaged, call our office to schedule a follow-up appointment.
Are Dental Veneers Better Than Whitening?
Teeth whitening and dental veneers both give you a brighter, whiter smile. Teeth whitening, though, does not remove stubborn stains or help with gaps, chips, and other problems. If you need more than whitening to restore your smile, dental veneers are the better option.
