Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile.  They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions and creating a beautiful smile. Our doctors will carefully plan treatment based on a patients unique needs and desires.  Very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain are custom made by a professional dental laboratory using our doctor's detailed direction and models. The veneers are then bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and long lasting smile.  

As the only dentist in Fairfield County that is board accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Babushkin and his associates are uniquely qualified to provide the best possible result. Here are some examples of Dr. Babushkin's work...

Front tooth required extraction due to a root fracture. It was replaced with a dental implant and the space between the front teeth was closed with a porcelain veneer on the other front tooth.

Reasons for porcelain veneers: 

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.  The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer.  A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond.  Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
