Can you remember the last time you smiled with confidence? If it’s been a while, you might be ready to make some changes to the appearance of your teeth, and porcelain veneers from our Glastonbury, CT cosmetic dentist are an excellent solution to help you accomplish your goals for your smile.
A porcelain veneer is a micro-thin layer of porcelain that is bonded directly to your tooth. Because it fits over your natural tooth, it allows you to cover imperfections and change the appearance of it. Porcelain veneers are ideal for restoring issues such as:
Because a veneer covers one or more teeth (depending on your needs), it can completely change the size, shape, or shade of them, allowing you to completely customize your smile.
It is important to maintain your veneers with an excellent brushing and flossing routine in order to ensure their longevity. With good home care and regular checkups and cleanings with your dentist, your veneers can last for up to 10 to 15 years.
Even though porcelain veneers may be stain-resistant, it’s still crucial to maintain their new appearance by avoiding stain-causing foods and beverages and keeping them clean. They won’t discolor at the rate of your natural teeth, so you won’t need to worry about whitening them.
Just like with your natural teeth, it’s important to avoid biting or chewing things you shouldn’t be, like hard candy or ice. This could cause your veneers to fracture or fall off.
The cost of porcelain veneers varies greatly with each patient. When you choose to enhance your smile with veneers, your treatment plan is designed specifically for your unique needs. Veneers can be used to repair only one or two teeth, or they can be utilized to redesign your smile, and this affects the cost.
Your cosmetic dentist in Glastonbury will determine your treatment plan during a consultation with you, and they will go over exactly what your plan will cost at that time.
If you are concerned about fitting veneers into your budget, our financial coordinator is happy to discuss options for affordable payment plans through CareCredit if that is of interest to you.
When you think about the benefits you receive from the confidence that a beautiful smile brings, you may realize that a smile designed with porcelain veneers is priceless.
