Veneers – Farmington, CT
From Average to Outstanding in Just a Few Steps
Your smile is capable of speaking volumes about your personality and who you are, but if you tend to hide your teeth due to dental imperfections, the real you may not be shining through. At Farmington Valley Dental, Dr. Thomas Peters and his team specialize in helping men and women just like you achieve and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles with a variety of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry solutions. One of the ways we help our patients rediscover confidence in their smiles involves dental veneers in Farmington.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-fitted sheaths of dental ceramic that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Meticulously crafted to look and feel like natural teeth, veneers are capable of correcting a wide variety of common cosmetic flaws, including:
- Deep, set-in stains that are resistant to professional teeth whitening treatments
- Chips or cracks in enamel
- Uneven spacing between teeth
- Mild to moderate misalignment or crowding
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that appear too small in relation to surrounding teeth
- Misshapen teeth that mar the appearance of an otherwise uniform smile
The Process of Getting Veneers
Veneer treatment begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Peters, an experienced cosmetic dentist in Farmington. He will carefully evaluate your smile, listen to the exact changes you have in mind, and help you visualize the end result. This may involve a diagnostic model, reviewing photos of similar case outcomes, or using a computer enhancement program to provide you with several options prior to performing the procedure.
Next, Dr. Peters will prepare your teeth by removing a tiny sliver of enamel – usually less than a millimeter. This ensures that your new smile with veneers won’t look bulky or unnatural.
After your teeth are prepped, we’ll take some impressions to send to the dental laboratory. There, specialists will use the impressions of your teeth to create your custom veneers.
Permanent veneers typically take a couple weeks to craft. In the meantime, we will provide you with temporary veneers to protect your teeth while you wait. Once your permanent veneers arrive at our office, we will welcome you back so Dr. Peters can remove your temporary veneers and securely attach your permanent ones. You will be able to leave this second appointment with your dazzling new smile!
