What is a veneer?
Porcelain veneers are a type of medical-grade ceramic shell that covers the front surface of the natural teeth. Dental veneers offer an immediate transformation for a patient’s smile. Porcelain veneers are made specifically for each patient to ensure a perfect fit. The advanced materials look very much like the natural dental enamel.
Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that the cosmetic dentist attaches to the fronts of a patient’s teeth. The veneers thereby cover flaws like chips, discoloration, minor misalignment, small gaps, and more. We design each veneer to complement the patient’s surrounding teeth and facial aesthetics. Since the porcelain is virtually identical to tooth enamel, the end result is extremely natural-looking.
What are some benefits of porcelain veneers?
- They resist stains. The porcelain that veneers are made out of is nonporous, meaning that it does not absorb pigments like regular tooth enamel.
- They last a long time. With proper care, veneers have the potential to last for 10 – 15 years or longer.
- They look incredibly natural. The size, shape, and color of each veneer is carefully designed to work with a patient’s unique smile.
- They are a versatile treatment. Veneers can be used to cover just one particularly troublesome tooth, or they can be used to totally transform your smile.
- They are easy to care for. You might need to make a few minor adjustments to your oral care routine when you have veneers, but keeping them in good shape is quite easy for most patients.
How long does the porcelain veneers process take?
Depending on how much you opt to change the appearance of your smile, the procedure could take one to three days. After an initial consultation and the creation of tooth impressions, the majority of patients may complete the porcelain veneers procedure in a single day. If a patient chooses to undergo teeth whitening as well, it can take longer.
How long until I can eat after undergoing a porcelain veneers procedure?
Following a porcelain veneers operation, patients are advised to resume their normal activities almost immediately, including eating. Hard foods like apples, raw carrots, celery, etc. should be avoided after having porcelain veneers surgery.
Does it hurt to get porcelain veneers?
In order to properly install the porcelain veneers, the specialized cosmetic dentists at Cosmetic Dentistry Center NYC (Manhattan, NY) must remove a small piece of healthy tooth enamel. This procedure does not hurt.
Will porcelain veneers make my mouth feel different?
Most patients state that the impacted teeth feel “weird” for one to two weeks before it goes away and your stunning porcelain veneers seem and feel just like an improved version of your natural teeth!
