Porcelain veneers repair chips, cracks and broken teeth. Cosmetic dental veneers are also used by your East Greenbush Dentist Dr. J. Craig Alexander to fill small gaps between teeth and lengthen or shorten teeth. Porcelain veneers can completely alter the shape and color of your smile if you so desire.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right For Me?
Before you can consider porcelain veneers, you must have healthy teeth and gums. If you suffer from gum disease or tooth decay, your dentist in New York will take care of those issues before proceeding with cosmetic dentistry. Plastering over teeth that need to be restored or gums that need to heal is something that will never happen with a licensed cosmetic dentist in East Greenbush.
My Teeth are Healthy Now What
If Dr. Alexander has given you the green light, he and his team will take digital pictures before enamel removal. Because you must have a small portion of enamel removed from the fronts of your teeth, porcelain veneers are permanent. If this is a concern, ask your cosmetic dentist in New York about other cosmetic dental procedures that are not so permanent.
After enamel removal, your East Greenbush dentist will make a mold of your teeth. This is used to custom make your new porcelain veneers. Temporary dental veneers may be needed for unsightly teeth.
How Are Veneers Applied
When your new cosmetic dental veneers are ready, Dr. Alexander will place on the fronts of your teeth checking for color and fit. If you and the doctor are happy with placement, your new porcelain veneers will be bonded permanently into place. After curing the bond your dental veneers are polished and checked for fit.
