While porcelain veneers represent one of the most significant advances in cosmetic dentistry, the concept behind veneers is simple: If you have discolored, uneven, or just plain unattractive teeth, simply cover them up with paper thin, attractive porcelain veneers. When you come to our office in Selden, NY, you’ll experience the finest porcelain veneer service around.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are used to cover the surface of decayed, discolored, or otherwise unsightly teeth. Applied with a strong adhesive material, veneers are bonded directly to the teeth. Veneers should look completely natural and last a lifetime.
Porcelain veneers can address many dental problems including:
- Misshapen teeth
- Worn teeth
To make your smile makeover with porcelain veneers possible, we’ll assess your current smile problems and discuss with you the changes you would like to make. Porcelain veneers can be colored to match your natural smile and made to blend beautifully with your facial aesthetics. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Stephen Scotto-Lavino will make sure that your porcelain veneers are crafted at a high quality dental lab known for producing excellent results.
The advantages of receiving a porcelain veneer are many:
- No discoloration
- Veneers are stain-resistant
- They can cover virtually any imperfection, including gaps, chips and stains
- Veneers are long-lasting – most patients get at least a decade of wear from veneers
- They’re durable and scratch-resistant
- They look incredibly lifelike
Heed These Helpful Tidbits
To reduce the risk of damage to your veneers, we recommend not biting or chewing on any hard objects such as nut shells or bones, and do not use your teeth to open or tear packages. You may also be advised to avoid certain foods that could damage the porcelain used.
