Are you self-conscious about your yellow, uneven, or chipped teeth? If so, you are not the only one. Surveys show that about 40-50% of dental patients are uncomfortable with their smiles’ looks. Don’t worry! Here at Dentist Tree of Fairfield, we love helping patients achieve the smile they’ve always wanted with porcelain dental veneers. What are dental veneers?

We use thin porcelain shells that reshape your teeth into their best selves, so you can smile proudly and worry-free again.

Tooth enamel yellows over time by absorbing the pigments in the foods and drinks you have. Porcelain, however, isn’t porous, making it highly stain-resistant. Even the best teeth whitening treatments only last 1 or 2 years, but porcelain veneers can keep your smile pearly white for more than a decade.
You might think minor chips and cracks are nothing to be concerned about, but they can cause major issues over time. If left alone, they leave your teeth vulnerable to cavities and further dental trauma. Fixing this damage with veneers gives you a wonderful, healthy smile without a single sign of decay.
Porcelain veneers are one of the longest-lasting cosmetic treatments available. They typically last at least a decade more than dental bonding. How long do porcelain veneers last? Porcelain is sturdy and durable. With good dental hygiene and maintenance, you can expect your veneers to last more than 15 or 20 years.
Traditional porcelain veneers require your cosmetic dentist to reshape your tooth to prevent any bulkiness that might make your smile uncomfortable. This change is minimal, requiring us to shave about 0.5mm of the tooth’s surface enamel. The tooth’s soft inner tissues are left untouched and healthy. However, we understand that some patients might feel nervous about changing their teeth this way. Fortunately, our cosmetic dentists have you covered! We also offer non-prep veneers that require no alteration to your teeth.
Our high-quality non-prep veneers are slightly thinner, coming in at 0.3.mm. They can slip right over your teeth as-is, no tooth grinding necessary. You can be in and out of our office in a single visit with a beautiful new smile. The whole procedure is entirely safe, fast, and pain-free. Visit us today at Dentist Tree of Fairfield, and let us help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted!
At Dentist Tree of Fairfield, we are dedicated to helping you achieve the smile you deserve on your terms. That’s why we offer so many cosmetic treatments to choose from. Among these options, one is known as dental bonding. Like veneers, dental bonding is versatile, fixing a wide variety of aesthetic issues patients have with their smiles. Surface-level tooth damage, crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, and discoloration are no problem for either treatment. But which one should you choose? Are veneers or dental bonding best for your smile?
In bonding, composite resin is molded and hardened to your teeth, creating the perfect tooth. This process requires no tooth prep, so you can be in and out of our dentist’s office in just an hour. It’s also an affordable way to change your smile’s entire appearance simultaneously. However, dental bonding has its drawbacks. It is limited in what it can achieve, so veneers are often chosen to tackle more serious issues. They also last about 4 to 8 years on average.
Dental veneers cost more than dental bonding, but they are worthwhile investments. On average, dental veneers will last anywhere between two and three times as long as composite bonding. They are also tougher and less prone to cracks and chips from grinding. Additionally, porcelain is very effective against stains, while composite offers no such advantage. You are free to eat and drink whatever you like—chocolate, fruit juice, and coffee—without worrying about losing your teeth’s shine.
