Veneers are extremely thin coverings for your teeth. They are usually made using composite or porcelain and are placed on the front surface of a tooth to mask any imperfections. Apart from traditional porcelain and composite veneers, the office of Greenwich Smiles also offers branded Empress and EMAX veneers.
Veneers can be used to address a variety of cosmetic dental issues such as slightly crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, deeply discolored or stained teeth, wear and tear and chips on the teeth, uneven spacing between the teeth and improperly sized teeth.
The best part of veneer restorations is that they give a natural appearance through the use of a simple procedure. Veneers are custom-made according to the size, shape, color and position of the teeth that they are used to enhance.
The process of placing veneers over your teeth starts with an evaluation to determine if veneers are the ideal restoration choice for you. Once that has been decided, your teeth are prepared by shaving off a small amount of enamel. This is done to allow for the thickness of the veneer to be accommodated. Next, we take impressions of your tooth which are used to make your custom veneer. Since the restoration is made in a dental lab, we will place a temporary veneer until the permanent one is ready. When you visit us next, we will bond your custom veneer to your tooth, creating your beautiful, new smile.
