Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?October 13, 2016
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular restorations placed by our experienced Manhattan cosmetic dentists. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Mello and Dr. Tabib can address nearly any cosmetic dentistry issue, producing an optimally attractive look that can, when cared for, last for several years. If you are unhappy with the quality of your smile, call our New York cosmetic dentistry office at 212-452-3344 to schedule a consultation and learn if porcelain veneers are the best choice for your smile.
What Porcelain Veneers Fix
Porcelain veneers can be used to treat multiple cosmetic dental issues at once. Some of the most common problems fixed by porcelain veneers are:
- Chipped and cracked tooth enamel
- Crooked tooth presentation
- Gaps or uneven spaces in between teeth
- Uneven tooth sizes
- Irregular tooth shapes
- Severe and under the enamel tooth discoloration
Veneers at our NYC cosmetic dentistry office can be placed on a single tooth or on multiple teeth at the same time for complete smile rejuvenation. Ideal placement will be based on your specific needs and can best be established during your meeting with one of our New York cosmetic dentists.
How Porcelain Veneers are Placed
Placing porcelain veneers takes a few office visits over the course of two or more weeks. Following your initial consultation, you will return to our office to have your teeth prepared for veneers and a mock-up of your restorations completed. This visit will also include the placement of temporary veneers that will be worn until your customized restorations are created.
Our NYC cosmetic dentists work exclusively with master ceramist Jason J. Kim for the creation of porcelain veneers. A certified dental technician known for his expertise and skill in the crafting of veneers, Jason J. Kim will personalize your restorations to meet our exacting specifications of size, shape, and color to produce an exquisitely designed and completely natural looking end result. Once these veneers have been created, you will return to our office to have them placed.
Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
The best dental veneer candidates are men and women who are free of oral health problems such as gum disease and unhappy with the appearance of their smiles. If this sounds like you, our Manhattan cosmetic dentists welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss porcelain veneers in order to help you make the best decision. Porcelain veneers offer remarkable results on their own, but can also be combined with other cosmetic and restorative procedures to address myriad oral health and beauty problems at the same time. If this approach is more suitable for your needs, we will provide information on all of your options during your cosmetic dentistry consultation at our NYC office.
The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers is by meeting with us for a personal and informative consultation. Please contact us online or call 212-452-3344 today to schedule your consultation and learn how we can help you reach all of your cosmetic dental goals.
Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello are located on East 84th Street in New York City and serve men and women living in all surrounding areas of NYC, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
