Are you tired of hiding your smile because you are self-conscious about imperfections that seem impossible to correct? Perhaps it's time to consider a transformation that can bring newfound confidence and radiance to your smile. Enter veneers, the secret behind many of Hollywood's dazzling smiles, and now available right here in the Bronx.
A dental veneer is one of several cosmetic dentistry procedures that may be used to enhance the appearance of teeth that are chipped, discolored, worn down, misaligned, or have gaps between them. They can also be used for dental restoration, as an alternative to dental crowns, and to whiten teeth. They also aid in the prevention of additional tooth damage.
Dental veneers are usually made of porcelain or composite resin. They are thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of your teeth. They contribute to stunning smiles by concealing imperfections on teeth and making them look straighter and whiter.
Porcelain veneers: Porcelain veneers are thin strips of porcelain cemented to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are stain-resistant and give you a radiant, white smile. Porcelain veneers last longer than composite veneers and produce a more natural-looking outcome. However, they are more expensive and need additional dental preparation or enamel removal before they can be placed.
Composite resin veneers: Dental composite material is used to make composite resin veneers, which are then glued to the front surfaces of your teeth. They can be used to fix a range of dental issues, such as broken, chipped, and improperly spaced teeth. Composite veneers are less costly than porcelain veneers and require less dental preparation, but they may not be as stain-resistant or durable.
Initial Consultation and Examination: The initial consultation is all about determining exactly what you want to achieve and presenting you with as much information as possible, including how veneers look so that you can make an informed choice about whether this procedure is suitable for you.
Impression or Digital Scan of Prepared Teeth: The following step in the veneer process is one of the most exciting if you decide to move on with them since you get to see the finished products in detail. Advanced dental software processes your scans to create exact, enlarged 3D pictures of your teeth and smile. Each design is guaranteed to never be the same and will then be modified by the doctor and dental technician to suit you precisely.
Fabrication of Permanent Veneers in a Lab: Fabricating permanent veneers in a lab involves creating custom-made coverings for teeth to improve their appearance. A skilled lab technician uses the impressions to design veneers that match the shape and color of your natural teeth. They make sure the veneers look natural and fit comfortably. Once the veneers are ready, they are sent back to the dentist. The dentist will try them on your teeth to make sure they fit perfectly and look just right.
Bonding of Veneers to Teeth: Once you are satisfied with your veneers, we can attach them to your teeth. The procedure of applying veneers comes to an end with this step, which includes bonding each veneer to the matching tooth. Your new veneers are cleaned and fitted in around two hours. You'll be ready to flaunt your brand-new, better smile after your veneer fitting is complete! We will go through the dental maintenance for your veneers so that you are aware of how to care for your teeth once you return home. The next day, you'll be able to eat, drink, brush, and floss normally.
Follow-Up Appointment for Evaluation: We will invite you back to the clinic two to three weeks after your veneers have been fitted for a thorough examination. This gives us the chance to inspect the veneers and, more importantly, confirm that you're satisfied with your new smile.
