Sometimes, a small change can make a big difference. That’s the goal with porcelain veneers. Veneers are a thin layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that is placed on the surface of the tooth to correct a minor cosmetic flaw. If you think porcelain veneers may be what your smile needs, the office of Dr. Thadeus S. Michalski in Rocky Hill, CT, is ready to help you achieve your goal.
Porcelain Veneers Solve a Host of Cosmetic Issues
Whether it is the look of one tooth that is bothering you or several of your front teeth, porcelain veneers can often be the answer. Some of the problems that porcelain veneers can solve include:
- ·Worn Enamel—Enamel is a tooth’s translucent outer coating. Over time, enamel may discolor. This may occur because of natural causes, such as aging, or from what we eat and drink, such as tea, coffee, soft drinks and specific medications.
- ·Wear and Tear—Teeth naturally succumb to wear and tear through the aging process. Thus, with age, teeth are more likely to have chips or cracks.
- ·Genetics—Some people have teeth with wider spacing, and with age these spaces may become more pronounced.
- ·Uneven Teeth—Sometimes due to age, sometimes due to teeth grinding, uneven teeth can be a noticeable flaw in your smile.
How Are Porcelain Veneers Made?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of high-quality, semi-translucent dental porcelain that are bonded to the tooth surface. Dr. Michalski will carefully analyze your unique situation and design veneers that will create a beautiful and natural smile. Porcelain veneers with Dr. Michalski usually require only two appointments. And with proper maintenance, veneers are made to last for 10 years or longer.
