Porcelain veneers are a very popular cosmetic dentistry service. Offered by your dentists in East Hartford, CT, these ultra-thin laminates disguise defects in tooth color, shape, size and texture. How can a little ceramic shell do all that? Your friends at Prestige Dental Network can fill in the details.

What's a little gap or chip?

To the individual who has one, it shouts "unattractive smile." Even if that marred tooth is basically healthy, the enamel flaw stands out every time a person opens his or her mouth. The result is poor self-confidence; interpersonal and professional relationships can suffer.

Cosmetic dentistry

Your dentists at the Prestige Dental Network understand. At both their Meriden and East Hartford, CT, they offer several cosmetic dentistry treatments that can renew smiles. Faded and stained, chipped, gapped, missing...whatever the smile issue, these experts can handle it.

Come to one of our two offices for a consultation. You'll receive an oral examination, and your dentist will tell you ways can improve your smile aesthetics.

Porcelain veneers work wonders

If your dentist recommends porcelain veneers--ceramic laminates bonded to the front side of flawed teeth--it's because your teeth are basically healthy. They simply need a little aesthetic help.

Customized in size, shape and color, translucent porcelain veneers fit up against your gum tissue. They are ultra-thin, but durable, normalizing defects such as stains, mild crowding, pits, craze lines and more. They blend right in with the rest of your teeth.

To place veneers, your dentist will remove a small portion of enamel. Oral impressions go to the dental lab to assist the ceramist in the creation of your laminates. When you return to your dental office, your dentist will bond the veneers on your teeth with a light-sensitive, permanent cement.

Veneer care

Veneers will stay bright and beautiful if you brush twice daily and floss, too, as the American Dental Association (ADA) advises. Eat your regular diet, but avoid nuts, ice cubes and sticky foods such as caramels. Also, see your dentist at Prestige Dental Network in East Hartford, CT, or Meriden, every six months for a professional cleaning and examination.
