Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
The dental veneer procedure requires the removal of tooth enamel to allow room for the veneer. Your cosmetic dentist will prepare the teeth that are to be treated by gently removing the outer most layer of enamel. Once the tooth is prepared, digital images will be taken and the design process will begin.
Every porcelain veneer is custom designed and fabricated. Your dentists will take into consideration the shape, size, color, and overall balance and aesthetic of your face and smile to create a restoration that will enhance your natural smile. The dental veneer will be fabricated based on careful plans created by your Union Square dentist. The veneer will be placed on the prepared tooth and adjusted until both patient and dentist are fully satisfied. Once the veneer is approved, it will be permanently bonded to the prepared tooth (or teeth). The veneer fits precisely over the front and sides of the tooth for a comfortable and natural fit.
Dental veneers are highly durable and stain and decay resistant. Patients enjoy the ability to eat a balanced diet with out restrictions. Healthy gum and surrounding tooth tissue are essential for lasting results. Daily oral hygiene and regular dental exams are essential for maintaining your dental veneer.
