Dental flaws like cracks, chips, gaps, and discoloration often become the focal point in an otherwise attractive smile.
Dr. Robert Arbuckle can correct distracting tooth flaws and give you the confidence to show off your smile with porcelain veneers.

So What Is a Dental Veneer?
A veneer is a thin porcelain shell we attach to the front surface of a tooth to mask various cosmetic imperfections. They are incredibly lifelike and durable, lasting over a decade for some patients.
Come to an Experienced Dentist
for the Best Cosmetic Treatment
Dr. Arbuckle has been in practice for more than two decades, providing a comprehensive selection of cosmetic dentistry. We want our patients to be able to choose the best procedure for their needs. Out of all our options, dental veneers are so popular because they provide some of the most natural-looking results.
The difference between veneers and alternative treatments, like bonding, is in the substantive material. Porcelain looks incredibly similar to natural teeth, with the same translucency and light-reflecting properties of enamel. The skilled technicians at our partner dental lab are specially trained to hand-craft veneers and consistently exceed our patients' expectations.
When it comes to your smile, no detail is overlooked to ensure stunning picture-perfect results. You can find out more about treatment by scheduling a consultation at our Wilton, CT, dental practice. Reach us online or by calling:
Candidates for Dental Veneers
It is important to have healthy teeth and gums before getting dental veneers. If you are suffering from tooth decay or periodontal disease, Dr. Arbuckle will first treat you with restorative dentistry so you have the ideal foundation for veneers.
In order for porcelain veneers to lay flush with surrounding teeth and not look bulky, we need to remove a small layer of surface enamel. The best patients have good tooth density to remain strong with these modifications.
While veneers are one the longest-lasting treatment options, they will not last forever. Every 10 years or so, you will need to replace the old shells with new ones. Good candidates understand the procedure is irreversible and are willing to commit to this occasional maintenance.
