Lumineers®

Veneers are porcelain coverings that are permanently bonded to the front surface of each tooth needing repair. This treatment is ideal for patients that want to rejuvenate their entire smile or conceal one or two problem teeth. In some cases, a single veneer may be able to be crafted in our office during one appointment, while extensive cases may require an additional visit. Find out more about veneers and if this procedure is right for you.

How do veneers improve smiles?

If you have ever seen a perfect smile with pearly white teeth that are all aligned correctly, that smile was likely created by an experienced cosmetic dentist using veneers. Most people’s teeth do not naturally emerge straight, nor do they stay white and perfect forever unless they have veneers.

Using high-quality dental porcelain, veneers are individually crafted to fit over the front surface of each tooth being treated. It is a permanent procedure that provides a stunning smile for years. Whether you have slightly crooked teeth that you wish looked straight or you want permanently white teeth without the hassle of teeth whitening treatments, veneers may be right for you.

Who should get veneers?

If you have imperfections in your smile, you may consider getting veneers.

This popular treatment can fix the following dental issues:

  • Cover misshapen teeth
  • Permanently whiten dingy teeth
  • Make crooked or overlapping teeth appear straight
  • Cover unevenly sized teeth
  • Conceal gaps between teeth

There is not much that veneers cannot cover or conceal. If you are considering veneers or any type of cosmetic dentistry, it is important that you have good oral health and practice daily oral hygiene. This gives the restoration a strong, healthy foundation. Otherwise, your results may not last as long as they should. Therefore, if you have any oral health concerns, Dr. Miller may address those first before beginning veneer treatment.

You can get veneers to cover all of the teeth that are visible in your smile line, or they can be made to match your surrounding tooth color if you only need one or two teeth fixed. We can help you decide how many veneers are right for you during your consultation with Dr. Miller, a premier cosmetic dentist in Madison, CT.

Are veneers permanent?

This procedure is permanent and requires the removal of your tooth enamel. Not much, though. Only about the width of a strand of hair. However, the preparation does permanently alter your natural tooth structure. This just means that if your veneer is ever damaged or pops off, which is rare, you would need a new one to cover your tooth. With proper care and maintenance, your veneers should last a decade or longer.
