How Porcelain Veneers in Wallingford, CT can make your “dream smile” come true

Dr. Vukovic and the Wolfy Dental Group team believe that you deserve to love your smile. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, we have a beautiful solution. Porcelain veneers from our Wallingford, CT practice can enhance and beautify one or several teeth with conservative treatment.

What are porcelain veneers?

A dental veneer is a very slim layer of cosmetic material applied to the outer surface of a tooth. It can be designed with porcelain or composite resin. We prefer porcelain because it is durable, wear-resistant, and long-lasting. Additionally, the sheen and luminescence of porcelain mimic that of the natural tooth enamel for a genuinely stunning result.

The Veneer placement involves very little tooth preparation. Dr. Vukovic may remove a bit of enamel to accommodate the veneer. However, the amount is minimal because the veneer is so thin. Despite the conservative nature of the procedure, it can have a dramatic cosmetic impact because a veneer completely covers the tooth’s visible part.

The benefits of Veneers

Veneers can treat one, several, or all of your teeth. They may be used for:

  • Lightening naturally dark teeth
  • Covering stains that do not respond to tooth bleaching treatment
  • Repairing minor chips or worn enamel
  • Reshaping teeth/ Recontouring 
  • Improving the appearance of mildly rotated teeth
  • Closing gaps between widely spaced teeth

Are you a good candidate?

If your teeth are healthy, but you want to improve their appearance, then veneers are likely an excellent choice. However, because veneers are quite thin, they are not appropriate for repairing significant tooth damage or decay. If a portion of the tooth structure needs to be replaced, Dr. Vukovic will likely recommend a dental crown, onlay, filling/composite, or other restoration. In cases where some, but not all, teeth are damaged, Dr. Vukovic may use a combination of veneers and dental crowns to achieve a full smile makeover.
