The Benefits of Dental Veneers

Healthy teeth are beautiful teeth, but sometimes, permanent cosmetic flaws can detract from your smile. These include chips, cracks, gaps, stains, or tooth rotations. All of these issues don't necessarily cause a problem health-wise but can make you feel uncomfortable about the way you look. That's why Dr. Luis Brea of North Avenue Advanced Dental Center in Bridgeport, Connecticut is proud to offer dental veneers as a way to improve the look of his patients' smiles. Here, Dr. Brea has provided some more information about how veneers can help you.


What are veneers?

Dental veneers are thin sections of porcelain that are affixed to the front of a corresponding tooth. Just as artificial nails give the illusion of having impeccably shaped natural fingernails, veneers cover up cosmetic flaws in your natural teeth to give you a perfectly shaped, bright smile. Our Bridgeport patients typically need between four and twelve dental veneers for a full smile makeover, while only one or two may be needed for isolated flaws.


How are veneers made?

Veneers start out in a dental laboratory as a block of porcelain, a durable ceramic that has similar qualities to tooth enamel. Using precise measurements from your Bridgeport dentist, the porcelain is whittled down by special machinery into a single veneer, which is about half the width of a dime. Each of your veneers will be created this way before being carefully painted and polished to look just like the front of a natural and beautiful tooth.


How can veneers help me?

Once your veneers are attached, your smile will look flawless, giving you the confidence to smile and talk comfortably. You won't have to worry about them staining or showing decay, although you will need to make sure you refrain from chewing ice or hard candy that could cause them to crack or chip. One of the best aspects of veneers is that they allow you to keep your natural teeth. Though there are plenty of high-quality and attractive tooth replacements available, it's important for optimal dental health to maintain your natural teeth. Regular checkups with your Bridgeport dentist will ensure that your veneers are secure and the teeth behind them are stable.
