About Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers can provide you with straighter, whiter teeth and are amongst the most popular treatments on the dental market.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers teeth are designed from thin slices of a material that gives your teeth the color you’re looking to achieve. They have the ability to turn unattractive, yellowing teeth into a whiter, natural hue to complete your smile makeover. Dental veneers are applied onto the surface of your teeth with long-lasting cement. Ultraviolet light then hardens the cement. It’s an easy and painless procedure when performed by your cosmetic dentist at dental office in Astoria, Queens NY.

Getting veneers teeth requires a simple office visit. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, about 89 percent of those seeking any kind of dental work do so to improve their appearance, while only 54 percent visit a dentist to improve their dental health. Like you, however, many see a dentist to get the best of both.

What Are the Reasons to Get Dental Veneers?

Teeth whitening doesn’t always provide the results you want. In that case, veneers just may be your best bet to get the whitest teeth. Dental veneers also can be useful as restorative alternatives to treat dental problems that include:

  • Broken, chipped or fractured teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Damaged or spotty tooth enamel
  • Weakened teeth from gum disease
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Unsightly gaps between teeth that bother you

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are a non-surgical solution to problems including tooth gaps, cracked, chipped and stained teeth and incorrectly-sized teeth. They can provide you with the color and efficiency that you are seeking and make eating and talking easier. What’s more is that is normally incredible difficult to tell the difference between your veneers and your remaining teeth. Veneers are also stain-proof. You can maintain your veneers in the same way you would treat your normal teeth.

The Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers

After a consultation at our dental clinic, giving you a full understanding of the process, why each stage needs to occur and deciding that veneers are right for you, we can add the veneers. Our dentists will then create a wax model of your smile to show you will your teeth will look like. We usually need to scrape off a tiny amount of the existing tooth surface to ensure the veneer fits properly. This provides the right aesthetics whilst giving the tooth its function back. The process usually takes around three months and you will normally be given temporary veneers. The temporary veneers will give you an insight into how the end result will look and feel and gives us the chance to make adjustments if needed before the permanent veneers are fitted. Once this period is over, you can expect to have bite function fully restored. The process cannot be reversed once the permanent veneers are in place.

Our dental specialists in Astoria, NY will need to use a gel to roughen up the tooth surface and make the bonding process more efficient. We will use a light wand to send heat through the veneer to the bonding agent and remove moisture to speed up bonding before eliminating any excess cement and polishing the veneer.

What Are The Alternatives to Veneers?

If you need more extensive dental treatment, you may not be able to get veneers, at least not right away. Your New Jersey dentist may recommend alternatives to veneers that may give you the same, if not better, results. Alternatives to veneers that may work well for you may include:

  • Straightening your teeth
  • Bonding
  • Implants with porcelain crowns
  • Additional professional whitening treatments
  • Invisalign
  • Zirconia crowns

Veneers are suitable for anyone with slight gaps in their teeth, or cracked, chipped and stained teeth. We have provided adults of all ages with veneers in the past. A number of A-list celebrities have invested in veneers but this does not mean that our solutions are out of your price range. Call today to find out more.
