Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth. To place a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. Afterwards, an adhesive layer is placed between the slightly prepped tooth and the veneer. The adhesive is then hardened with a curing light.
Porcelain veneers are excellent for restoring the appearance of teeth that have been damaged due to injury or that are discolored, chipped, or misaligned. The color, shape, length, and size of your teeth can be completely altered with high-quality porcelain veneers. Dr. Austin can make you look younger and more attractive with dental veneer technology.
Porcelain veneers replace the enamel of your teeth by bonding to the front of each tooth. Like natural enamel, these thin glass-like veneers are translucent and light-absorbing, which creates a natural and luminescent appearance. With porcelain veneers by New York cosmetic dentist Dr. Austin, you can have the beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted.
During your initial office visit, we will do a smile makeover consultation where we will walk you through the various stages of your porcelain veneers treatment, allowing you to take an active role in designing your new smile. Your teeth will be lightly buffed in which about half a millimeter of enamel will be removed from the front surface of each tooth. A mold of your teeth will then be made so that perfectly fitting veneers can be created from them.
During the second phase of treatment (7-10 days later), your new porcelain veneers will be fitted and then bonded to your teeth upon your approval of the fit, color, size and shape of your custom made veneers. Your new porcelain veneers will not only give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile, but also the confidence to conquer the world.
