Porcelain veneers are a cornerstone of cosmetic dentistry, offering a transformative solution for various dental imperfections. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we specialize in providing high-quality veneers that significantly improve the appearance of your teeth, giving you the smile you’ve always desired.

Understanding Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers, or dental laminates, are ultra-thin shells crafted from dental ceramic. Typically around 0.5 to 0.6 mm thick, these veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth, effectively resurfacing them.

When to Consider Veneers for Smile Enhancement

Veneers are an excellent option for addressing a range of dental issues:

  • Minor Tooth Imperfections: Repairing chips, cracks, or slight misalignments.
  • Discolored Teeth: Providing a whiter smile when traditional whitening isn’t effective.
  • Instant Orthodontics: Offering the appearance of straight teeth without the need for braces.
  • Closing Gaps: Eliminating small spaces between teeth.

Why Cosmetic Dental Veneers are Effective

Despite their thinness, porcelain veneers are incredibly durable due to:

  • Strong Bonding: When bonded to a tooth, the porcelain becomes extremely resilient.
  • Tooth Enamel Compatibility: The bonding process involves etching the tooth enamel to create a strong, lasting bond.

The Process of Getting Veneers

Getting veneers typically involves several steps:

  1. Trimming the Tooth: Removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the veneer.
  2. Shade Selection: Choosing the right color to match your natural teeth.
  3. Impression Taking: Creating a precise mold of your teeth for custom veneer fabrication.
  4. Pre-Cementation Evaluation: Ensuring a perfect fit and appearance.
  5. Bonding the Veneer: Securely attaching the veneer to the tooth.

Advantages of Veneers

Choosing veneers comes with several benefits:

  • Conservative Treatment: Less invasive compared to crowns, requiring minimal tooth alteration.
  • Natural Appearance: Veneers mimic the light-handling properties of natural teeth.
  • Stain Resistance: The ceramic surface of veneers resists staining, maintaining a bright smile.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
