Porcelain veneers are a technique used to correct color and shape to significantly improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth. This technique is often recommended as an alternative to crowns when there is sufficient amount of tooth material left.

Veneers are thin pieces of custom-shaped porcelain or plastic that are then glued to the front of a patient’s tooth. While veneers can be a good alternative to crowns because they do not require the removal of a large amount of the patient’s tooth, in some cases more tooth material may need to be removed. Dr. Rapp and our team at Advanced Dentistry of Fairfield County will make an impression of your mouth that we will then use to make custom veneers designed specifically to fit your teeth. Veneers typically cost less than crowns, are resistant to staining, and usually last 10 – 15 years.
