How Porcelain Veneers Can Transform Your Smile

How Porcelain Veneers Can Transform Your Smile

Not everyone has a naturally-beautiful smile, so if there are some issues with yours that you’re unhappy with, you might want some assistance in fixing them. Porcelain veneers are a great solution for addressing minor flaws in teeth. The professionals at the dental offices of Dr. Pyon in New York City can help give you a smile you’ll love.

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin coverings made of ceramic that are bonded to the front of the teeth to change their appearance. A single veneer or multiple veneers can be placed at once. They are custom-made and can provide just a subtle touch-up or a complete makeover.

How can porcelain veneers improve my smile?

Veneers are a popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry because they are versatile in their uses. They can be placed to:

  • Fix/mask chips and cracks
  • Get rid of obvious gaps
  • Change the shape or size of misshapen teeth
  • Straighten slightly misaligned teeth
  • Whiten discolored teeth

Are they right for me?

The only requirement for receiving porcelain veneers is to have sufficient healthy dental structure to support them. It is a good treatment for anyone who wishes to permanently enhance the appearance of their smile.

How can I get porcelain veneers?

To have porcelain veneers placed, you’ll first need a consultation with your dentist at the offices of Dr. Pyon to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate, and then to discuss your goals for the treatment. If you have cavities or gum disease, they will have to be addressed before you can receive the veneers. The actual procedure can normally be completed in as little as two appointments. During the first appointment, you will have a small portion of your teeth filed down to make room for the veneers. An impression will then be made of the prepared teeth (or tooth) which will be used to have the veneers created in a dental lab. Temporary veneers can be placed to protect the prepared teeth until the permanent veneers come back. Once completed, the temporary veneers will be removed during a second appointment and the permanent veneers will be bonded to the teeth. They can be shaped, if needed, to ensure that they fit perfectly with the rest of the teeth.
