Porcelain Veneers: Transforming Your Smile in Valley Stream And Manhattan

Do you have teeth that suffer from a wide array of aesthetic issues, such as stained teeth or even damaged/misshapen teeth? You probably assume improving the appearance of your smile will require multiple office visits and an array of treatments.

The team at our Manhattan and Valley Stream offices with porcelain veneers and teeth laminates can completely transform your smile in as little as two visits with a single cosmetic procedure. Find out how veneers can help you achieve the stunning results you deserve.

Porcelain veneers are routinely used to cover teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers, often alternatively termed dental veneers or teeth lamination, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth in order to cosmetically improve their appearance. Typically veneers are difficult to stain, making veneers a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile. Strong and very durable, veneers should last from ten to fifteen years, and come in colors that will brighten dark teeth without the worry of them changing color. Veneers are typically done in only two office visits and can actually strengthen your teeth.

What Can Veneers / Laminates Address?

Teeth lamination is used to address a number of both cosmetic and restorative issues, including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Misshapen or worn down teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • The appearance of minor misalignment

If you have any questions about what aesthetic problems we can correct with a restoration, then please contact our office. We can examine your teeth to see what the best choice is for improving the function and beauty of your smile, whether it’s dental veneers/teeth lamination or another procedure.

How Do Veneers Work?

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain material that we place over the teeth in the front of the mouth. They adhere to the surface, instantly altering the appearance of the teeth. We can use them to make a number of issues or repair minor damage to the teeth. Caring for your restoration simply requires routine oral healthcare, including:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day
  • Flossing once a day
  • Having the dentist examine your teeth twice a year via regular checkups and dental cleanings

Good oral hygiene not only protects your new restoration but can also improve your overall dental health as well.

What Does Placement Involve?

The dental veneer/teeth lamination procedure will begin with preparation. To prepare the teeth we will need to remove a very thin layer of enamel. Doing so leaves room for the completed restoration. We then take impressions of your teeth.

At a dental lab, an expert ceramist uses the impression to design and fabricate the teeth lamination. Once complete, you return for your second visit. The doctor must then check the fit and make any further adjustments. The veneer will be bonded to the tooth with a powerful adhesive material.

If you have any questions about dental veneers/teeth lamination or would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Igor Ilyabayev and Dr. Alevtina Edgar, please contact our Valley Stream, Queens office at 516-887-0020 or our Financial District, Manhattan office at 212-571-0033.
