A Beautiful Smile in Just Two Appointments

Porcelain Veneers Manhattan

Porcelain VeneersPorcelain veneers are a fantastic way to create a great looking smile. Porcelain veneers can change the color or shape of the tooth and visually enhance a smile without the need for costly orthodontics. Porcelain veneers, also called porcelain laminates are also recommended for teeth that are broken or chipped, permanently stained or misshapen.  They are very thin lab made porcelain facings which are cemented onto the front surfaces of front teeth.  Because they are highly durable yet thin, very little tooth structure is taken away which leaves the procedure almost stress-free for the patient. There is no “dark line” that may appear with porcelain fused to metal crowns; they transmit light better and have a more translucent appearance giving them a more life-like appeal. Many times a bleaching system such as Britesmile is used in conjunction with porcelain veneers to produce a more complete appearance.

During the first appointment the tooth is contoured and a precise impression is taken of the tooth. The impression is then sent to our in-house lab to be processed. The finished veneer is then cemented onto the tooth. Any adjustments are then made. The entire process usually involves two appointments.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers/Laminates:

  • The natural tooth structure is preserved
  • They can mask out permanent discoloration resulting from antibiotics from childhood
  • They can repair fractured or chipped teeth
  • They can cover spaces between the teeth (diastemas)
  • They can correct misaligned or crooked teeth for an improved smile
  • The results last longer than bleaching or bonding
  • They are natural looking
  • They resist staining and chipping
  • They have a long life expectancy

Porcelain veneers are the instant orthodontic answer to straighten smiles, close spaces, reshape and correct minor misalignment of your teeth. You can now achieve the perfect “Hollywood smile.” Veneers are very thin and are bonded on the front of your natural front teeth.  Veneers are about 0.3-0.5mm in thickness and are very strong with a life-like appearance.

Porcelain veneers can be made very thin conserving tooth structure and can have a life-like appearance without looking fake. We pride ourselves on guiding a patient to the best porcelain veneer treatment, but understanding a patients needs and being flexible in our approach is always a priority.
