If you have an uneven smile, tooth discoloration, small gaps between your teeth, or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers can correct a variety of cosmetic problems. In as little as two appointments, you can achieve a stunning smile with porcelain veneers in Rockefeller Plaza.

What Should I Know About Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers porcelain are wafer-thin shells that are adhered to the surface of teeth using a strong dental bonding solution. Composed of tooth-colored materials, dental veneers can change the shape, color, length, and size of teeth. They look just like your natural teeth and can instantly improve the appearance of your smile.

What Will Be My Expected Porcelain Veneers Cost?

Since each patient that comes into our office has different needs and treatment goals, there isn’t a fixed cost for veneers made from porcelain. The number of teeth receiving veneers and the difficulty of your restoration are only a few examples of factors that can influence your porcelain veneers cost. As a cosmetic procedure, veneers aren’t usually covered by dental insurance. Contact us to learn about financing options or payment options offered at our office.

What Are the Differences Between Veneers and Crowns?

Crowns and veneers are common dental restoration methods that can improve the appearance of your teeth, and they are both made of the same materials. The main differences between these two options involve how much of the tooth is covered and how much of the tooth’s structure is removed.Since porcelain crowns cover the entire tooth, this procedure is also known as “capping a tooth” because the crown fits over the tooth much like a cap. Veneers are thin shells that cover the front surface of teeth. They are also less invasive and allow the dentist to preserve most of your tooth’s natural enamel. To prepare a tooth for placement of a crown, up to two millimeters of the tooth’s structure is removed.Crowns are the best choice for patients with damaged or weakened teeth, whether it’s caused by trauma, age, decay, or tooth grinding. Crowns are placed over teeth to offer protection from additional damage, and they work well for back teeth because they’re strong enough to withstand the bite force of your molars. If you’re only looking to improve the appearance of your smile and have otherwise healthy teeth, veneers might be the best option for you. To figure out what your options are and learn if you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers in Rockefeller Plaza, contact us to make an appointment.

What Preparation Is Needed Before Veneers Can Be Placed?

The porcelain veneers procedure is a multi-step process that can be completed in two or three dental visits. For most patients, one visit is needed to prepare the teeth for veneers while a second visit is needed to place veneers over your teeth. Take a look at the steps involved.Tooth preparation for veneers involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to ensure a smooth and natural-looking fit. Your dentist will remove less than one millimeter of tooth enamel. Next, impressions of your teeth are taken to create a mold of your mouth. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory where a technician will create veneers that perfectly match the shape of your teeth. This process can take up to two weeks, so your dentist will place temporary veneers over your teeth to keep them protected.Your permanent veneers are placed during a second appointment. Your teeth are cleaned after removing the temporary veneers, and your dentist will use dental cement to bond the veneers to your teeth. After the veneers are securely attached, they are polished to reveal a bright smile.

How Long Can I Expect Veneers to Last?

Porcelain teeth can last for decades when you take care of them properly. Great oral care is one of the best ways to ensure the health and durability of your veneers, so it’s important to see your dentist every six months and brush and floss every day. Despite being strong and durable, veneers are susceptible to damage just like your real teeth. This is why it’s important to avoid using your teeth to open bags or packages and be careful when biting down on hard foods. If you have an underlying problem with grinding your teeth at night, be sure to ask your dentist how you can protect your veneers with a night guard. Also, our dentists recommend wearing a mouth guard if you’re playing contact sports.
