Porcelain veneers have become a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth. At Westchester Smile Design, we believe that everyone deserves a beautiful and confident smile, and porcelain veneers can help achieve just that.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They are designed to cover up any imperfections and improve the overall look of a tooth. Veneers can be used to fix a wide range of cosmetic issues, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and misshapen teeth.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
One of the many benefits of porcelain veneers is their natural-looking appearance. Porcelain is a material that closely mimics the natural look and feel of tooth enamel. This means that when a patient receives porcelain veneers, their teeth will not only look beautiful but also feel just like their natural teeth.
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
The process of getting porcelain veneers typically requires two to three appointments at our dental office. During the first appointment, our dentist will examine the patient’s teeth, take X-rays, and create a treatment plan. The next appointment involves removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer. An impression is taken of the tooth, which is then sent to a dental laboratory to create the custom-made veneer. In the meantime, the patient will wear a temporary veneer. During the final appointment, the permanent veneer is bonded to the tooth using a special dental adhesive.
Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a long-lasting cosmetic dental treatment that can last up to 10-15 years with proper care. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene habits and visit our dental office for regular check-ups and cleanings to ensure the longevity of the veneers.
