Are you struggling with teeth that are cracked, chipped, stained, or affected by other cosmetic concerns? Here at New Haven Prosthodontics in New Haven, CT, our dentist, Dr. Francesco Maratta, can use veneers to completely transform your smile and give it a cosmetically flawless new look. Read on to learn more!

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin laminates affixed to the front surface of teeth with cosmetic flaws to improve the appearance of those teeth. Once veneers are in place, they look just like your natural teeth, only flawless. Veneers are extremely versatile and can improve the appearance of teeth with various issues, such as:

  • Crooked placements
  • Chips and cracks
  • Stains or discolorations
  • Excessive spacing
  • Rough surfaces
  • Odd shaping

Although a variety of materials can be used to create veneers, porcelain is most commonly used because it is strong and bears a striking resemblance to natural tooth enamel. Each veneer is custom made for the tooth it will be covering, with the size, shape, and color all modified during customization. This ensures each veneer will readily fit in place and blend in with the surrounding teeth.

During a consultation, at our office in New Haven, CT, your dentist, Dr. Maratta, can help you decide if veneers are the right option for you.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Veneers offer several benefits, including how they:

  • Conceal various cosmetic flaws
  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Are permanently affixed to the teeth so they will not come loose
  • Can perform normal biting and chewing functions like regular teeth
  • Are easy to care for, requiring only daily brushing and flossing
