Cosmetic dentistry enthusiasts will know something about porcelain veneers. But for many patients, a “veneer” is just wood siding. We’re hoping to spread the word about dental veneers to help patients become more aware of this potential treatment. Those who have spent years frustrated with their teeth or hiding their smiles will find solace and smile rejuvenation in porcelain veneers. Read on to learn about the veneer procedure, benefits of porcelain veneers, and all the changes they can make for a smile.

What Can Schenectady Porcelain Veneers Do?

Dental veneers create a fresh layer of enamel-like material on worn or otherwise insufficient teeth. Veneers look like thin, v-shaped shells. Your dentist fits them over target teeth to make desired changes and strengthen the tooth’s structure. Veneers may be made to match nearly any specifications, so they are a key part of a new, tailor-made smile.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers Schenctady

Porcelain is a strong dental material that doesn’t compromise appearance for durability. Unlike other materials, porcelain is incredibly similar to natural tooth enamel. It matches the appearance of enamel in terms of color (the porcelain restoration may be made in any shade and will match your surrounding teeth), as well as its light-reflecting qualities (porcelain is translucent like natural enamel). Moreover, porcelain veneers are highly thin and will not necessitate much tooth reduction to fit over teeth. This makes your veneer appointments fast and much more comfortable.

The Schenectady Dental Veneer Procedure

In order to receive your veneers, you will likely need two appointments. At the first, we will prepare your teeth for veneers and take impressions of the prepared teeth. These impressions will be sent to a dental lab and used to fabricate your veneers in whatever shade we choose. We may provide you with temporary veneers to wear until your final appointment. At your next visit, your veneers will be bonded to your teeth and your smile will be complete!

Veneers have changed so many of our patients’ lives. Get in touch with our office to make yours the next.
