Veneers in New York

Do you dream of having a beautiful, flawless, and radiant smile? For many patients, their smiles are a source of insecurity.

Dr. Dean is excited to help you achieve your ultimate smile goals. Continue reading to learn more about the process of getting veneers.

How Veneers Enhance Your Smile

Veneers are thin, customized shells that fit over your teeth. They are used to conceal cosmetic issues such as chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, and dental discoloration. Veneers can be used to treat a single tooth or several, depending on your needs. There are a few types of veneers, but porcelain veneers are revered for their ability to mimic the color and translucence of natural teeth, providing a natural yet significantly enhanced smile result.

What to Expect at Your Veneers Consultation

Planning your new smile with veneers begins with a consultation. During your visit with one of our highly skilled dentists, you will discuss various aspects of your oral health and cosmetic goals. You will receive a dental examination to help our dentists determine if you are eligible for this treatment. Veneers are an option for patients with healthy teeth and gums; issues such as cavities and gum disease must be addressed before veneers can be placed.

Procedure Details

During your veneer procedure, your NYSI dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. This step allows the veneers to securely adhere to the surface of the teeth. An impression will then be taken of your teeth and used to produce your custom veneers. Patients may be provided with temporary veneers as their permanent veneers are being created.

Veneer Placement

Your veneers will be placed during a second office visit. Your NYSI dentist will examine the color and shape of your veneers before permanently bonding them to your teeth. Necessary adjustments will be made to ensure a comfortable fit.

How to Maintain Your New Smile

Veneers do not require special maintenance outside of brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups. However, steer clear of abrasive toothpastes and whitening products, since they may damage your veneers.
