Dental veneers are wafer-thin materials that we can attach to the front surface of your teeth to transform the appearance of damaged or discolored teeth. Veneers are very popular right now due to closely resembling the appearance of one's natural teeth.
As with most things involving dentistry, technological advancements have enabled this type of cosmetic procedure to offer a more natural look than ever before. New types of porcelain dental veneers are available that offer superior light-reflecting capabilities.
At Aesthetic Dentistry of Rockland County we are happy to have been helping many patients to obtain the smile of their dreams. Our cosmetic dentist Dr. Natalya Petlyuk combines the art and science to envision, create, and implement amazing cosmetic dental makeovers.
Over the past three decades, emerging dental technology has led to the development of very durable life-like, and convenient dental veneers. New forms of porcelain offer increased strength and light reflectivity that closely mimic that of natural teeth. We are able to provide a virtually perfect match to the natural color and shape of the patient's desired teeth.
Some patients benefit from combining dental veneers with other dental treatments like dental crowns and teeth whitening, leading to comprehensive cosmetic results that produce an amazing & beautiful smile.
To make the determination if you are an appropriate candidate for veneers, you need to take part in a consultation. Once we have evaluated your medical history, teeth condition, and general dental health, we can make an appropriate judgment on the matter. Alternatively, we may recommend other treatments if they are more appropriate.
At your consultation, you will be an active participant in the design of your new smile. To assist us in developing an individualized treatment plan for you, you can share your preferences for the length, width, shape and color for your desired dental veneers. We want to make sure that your treatment helps you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Dental veneers may help you if you have:
A chipped or cracked tooth
Gaps in between teeth
Minor misalignment of teeth
Although veneers make a good treatment choice for many patients, they are not for everyone. You must have healthy gums and teeth to be considered for dental veneers. Those with conditions like gum disease, tooth decay and root canal infection do not normally qualify for dental veneers. However, if these issues have been successfully treated, you will normally be cleared for this type or other types of cosmetic procedures, like full porcelain or porcelain to zirconia crowns.
When considering porcelain veneers, it is important to keep in mind that this is normally a permanent procedure due to the need to remove some of your tooth enamel before the placement of your veneers.
Other conditions that could potentially disqualify a patient from receiving veneers include those who have a grinding teeth habit. Even though porcelain is quite durable and strong, a large amount of force can put them under strain, leading to breakage for complete failure. As with many other conditions, if bruxism is successfully treated, you may be able to receive dental veneers.
Practicing sound oral care ensures that you will get the longest life possible out of your dental veneers. We can also offer advice on caring for your veneers. The key takeaway is to realize that your teeth only appear better after receiving veneers. In reality, it is your natural teeth being covered by veneers. Those teeth are still as susceptible to developing plaque as they ever were. Maintaining sound oral hygiene like regular brushing and flossing is very important in extending the lifespan of your dental veneers.
