Dental Veneers Can Improve Your Smile for Many Years Ahead

Posted .

Dr. Henry Danziger and the cosmetic dental specialists at his Naugatuck, Connecticut, clinic understand the value of a white and winning smile in a healthy social life. If you have chronic struggles with dental staining or if your smile suffers from other cosmetic imperfections, Dr. Henry Danziger might recommend fitting each tooth in your smile with dental veneers.

These are custom-made shells that are cast from a special dental-grade porcelain in a state-of-the-art dental lab. Each veneer will be designed to fit perfectly over the faces of the corresponding tooth in your smile.

Once they are cemented in place, the veneers will look exactly like natural teeth. The dental-grade porcelain material is not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. Once they are installed, the veneers will make it easy to maintain your newly whitened smile.

Dr. Henry Danziger will start by examining each tooth and taking a few X-rays to assess the health of each tooth. It’s important to make sure that there is sufficient strong enamel to securely mount a veneer.

If one or more of your teeth lack sufficient healthy enamel to secure a dental veneer, or if you have a new cavity, Dr. Henry Danziger might recommend a porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Henry Danziger will then use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Dr. Henry Danziger will then make a detailed impression of all the teeth in your smile. This will be sent a dental lab to be used as a guide for crafting your custom porcelain dental veneers.

A second appointment will be required when your veneers have been completed. During this appointment, your dentist will cement your new dental veneers in place with a special dental adhesive.

If you live in the Naugatuck, Connecticut, area and your smile is suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections, you should call 203.729.0563 to set up a dental veneers consultation at our dental office.
