Porcelain Veneers Perfect Smiles

ThinkstockPhotos-177119677We all want to look our very best, and chipped, cracked, or missing teeth front and center when we smile, can ruin the image we work so hard to present to the world. Front tooth repair can be difficult, painful, costly and time consuming. Porcelain veneers are a great option for patients who want to achieve a picture-perfect smile without undergoing numerous dental procedures. At Cosmetic Dentistry Associates, we are here to help you design the smile of your dreams. Don’t accept a smile you’re not proud of, call to schedule your appointment at our Pomona, NY office today, and let us put a smile back on your face.

How do Veneers Work?

Porcelain veneers are thin, customized sheets of porcelain that is bonded to the front of your teeth to correct the appearance of damaged or crooked teeth. Veneers will take two visits to place. During your initial visit, our dental team will examine your teeth, facial structure, and bite alignment. Using x-ray images and molds of your existing teeth, you will work with our staff to design a perfect smile. You will also determine what preparatory steps will need to be taken in order to attach your veneers. Some patients require a minimal amount of filing so the veneers appear natural and line up with your surrounding teeth. Other patients will need extractions, tooth decay removal, or other more time consuming procedures. Before you leave, we can place a temporary veneer that you wear while your custom veneer is being created.

Your unique porcelain veneer will be crafted to match your tooth shape, size, and color. Once your veneer is ready, you will come back for a second visit. During this visit, we will remove your temporary veneer and perform and additional preparation before placing your veneer. Your porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth the same way dental crowns are bonded to teeth. Once they are attached, your dentist will examine the veneers and make any additional adjustments, so that your bite looks and feels natural. Your beautifully designed smile will never stain or fade, and if you’ve struggled with dental issues like tooth decay, veneers protect your teeth from further damage.

Who Should Consider Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a great option for any patient interested in correcting the esthetic of their smile without undergoing complex dental procedures to correct crooked, gapped, broken or missing teeth. Veneers can be especially helpful for patients who are not healthy enough to undergo a dental procedure, or who have struggled with tooth decay. The application of a veneer is minimally invasive and virtually pain free, so whether you have a chronic illness that slows your body’s healing ability, a low pain tolerance, or just don’t want to deal with the hassle of replacing a tooth, repairing damaged teeth, or whitening an extremely discolored smile you can still correct the way your smile looks. If tooth decay lead you to place porcelain veneers to cover the damage, porcelain veneers have the added benefit of protecting your teeth from further decay.
