Dental Veneers: A Trusted Custom Solution For a Variety of Cosmetic Concerns

Dentist shade-matching a veneer to a patient's smile
Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment designed to conceal minor imperfections affecting one tooth or several teeth. They can also give your smile attractive symmetry. During the procedure, our dentists place natural-looking porcelain shells over the teeth you wish to enhance. Whether you have a small chip or deep stains, veneers placed at one of our Hamden-area offices can help you.

What Qualities Make Me a Good Veneers Candidate?

You Want to Refine Your Front Teeth

Dental veneers enhance the teeth at the front of your smile. Whether you wish to enhance a single tooth or all of your most visible teeth, we can accommodate you with a custom veneers treatment.

You Have Healthy Natural Teeth

Rest assured, our dentists will not place porcelain veneers if your smile isn't healthy enough. During your consultation, we'll assess your oral health and create a treatment plan. We can provide restorative care, like fillings and emergency dentistry, to get your smile into shape.

Your Needs are Strictly Cosmetic

Veneers are cosmetic, addressing superficial tooth imperfections like chips or cracks. They cannot address issues of functionality or structure. If your teeth need protection, we offer custom dental crowns. Crowns are caps that cover a broken or decayed tooth, fortifying and protecting it from further damage. During your consultation at one of our New Haven, CT-area offices, we can determine if veneers or crowns are right for you.

You Do Not Have TMJ Problems

People with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder often grind their teeth without realizing it. This can lead to worn and damaged tooth enamel. It can also damage porcelain. We offer TMJ treatment to protect your natural teeth as well as your porcelain veneers.

Veneers vs. Dental Bonding Which Is Right for Me?

Veneers and dental bonding are two of the most common ways our dentists treat cosmetic concerns. While they have a lot in common, they also have key differences. If you are unsure whether veneers or bonding is right for you, we'll walk you through the options:
tooth receiving dental bonding

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding involves applying a composite resin onto a tooth to conceal imperfections such small chips, wide gaps, and discoloration that doesn't respond to whitening. While this treatment is more affordable than veneers, the results do not look as natural. Many patients choose to receive bonding in order to decide if they would eventually like to invest in veneers.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a porcelain shell that is custom-crafted to match surrounding teeth and look indistinguishable from natural dental tissue. It covers the entire front surface of a tooth to hide imperfections and provide a flattering complement to your entire smile. Though this solution costs more than bonding, it can provide superior aesthetics that last longer.

How Can I Pay for My Veneers? Dental Financing Is Available

Waiting room at Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of Connecticut

Because veneers are considered a purely cosmetic treatment, they do not qualify for insurance coverage. However, our practice serving Hamden and communities throughout Greater New Haven offers a number of ways to make porcelain veneers a fit for virtually any budget:

CareCredit® Financing

While veneers are cosmetic and therefore not covered by dental insurance, there's another option to make costs more manageable. Our dentists accept financing from CareCredit, a reputable lender.

Cash, Check, and Credit Cards

Our practice also accepts cash and checks. If you prefer to use your own existing line of credit, our practice also accepts most major credit cards.
