Thanks to new technology, you can now skip most stages of teeth treatment and get a perfect smile by installing cosmetic dental veneers and their most natural and up-to-date counterparts — porcelain veneers. These are thin yet hard porcelain laminates that can completely change the shape and color of a tooth or the whole dental arch. Porcelain veneers are used to eliminate the visual impacts of tooth decay and disease, or simply to achieve a more beautiful smile. Porcelain veneers placed by professional dentist Dr. Lana Rozenberg last decades and don’t cause any inconvenience either during the placement process or during their use.
What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers in New York are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures at the moment. They focus on the two most common tooth enemies: bad genetics and aging. Most veneer patients are concerned with severe worn (discolored) enamel or abnormal teeth structure, such as big spaces between the teeth or uneven teeth. In general, dental veneers are used for fixing such issues as:
- Gaps between the teeth;
- Tooth crack or chips;
- Discoloration; and,
- Misalignment, etc.
Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
In order to be a good candidate, a patient should:
- Have good oral health (no tooth or gum diseases, no infections);
- Maintain their oral hygiene by following oral care instructions;
- Have a thick layer of healthy enamel;
- Consult with a dentist about the final cosmetic goals of the procedure; and,
- Have realistic expectations.
All of the enlisted requirements are checked and discussed with the dentist. If a patient has issues with oral hygiene, all of the pre-existing diseases should be cured before the veneers are placed. If the natural teeth are adequate, a patient may first be recommended less invasive options.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
If you are thinking about getting porcelain veneers in Manhattan please consider their important benefits:
- Porcelain veneers look very natural and match the rest of the teeth;
- Dental veneers made of porcelain are the most strong and durable;
- Veneers are far less traumatizing and require minimal recovery time;
To implement all the advantages of porcelain veneers, it’s necessary to find a trusted and confident dentist, and Dr. Lana Rozenberg is the perfect candidate. With top-rated dentistry skills, she has already helped hundreds of patients rid themselves of insecurity and obtain a perfect smile.
Disadvantages of Porcelain Veneers
We are talking about invasive permanent dentistry treatments, so patients should be aware of the possible disadvantages, such as:
- It’s irreversible. It requires removing the top thin layer of enamel and/or tooth shaping. Such changes are permanent.
- Teeth can be vulnerable to external threats or bruxism. For instance, this type of treatment is not recommended for those who clench their jaws or grind their teeth.
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
Although dental veneers are a permanent solution, porcelain may require replacement over the years. Normally, they are very durable and have strong restoration characteristics, so there is no single answer as to how long they can last. Their effect will directly depend on how the patient takes care of their oral hygiene and whether or not he or she has strong bruxism.
In order to maintain oral health and the longevity of porcelain teeth, it is highly recommended that each patient has regular dentist and hygienist examinations and cleanings, as required.
Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care?
Taking good care of porcelain teeth is very important; however, it doesn’t require any new or special techniques. In some cases, adjusting diets may be recommended (such as avoiding certain firm foods) or, in extreme cases, wearing protective appliances during sleep times is advised.
The most important part of care is to be gentle with the new teeth, and avoid using your teeth for opening objects (like tearing packages), for example. Other than that, the patient will need to maintain their usual hygiene routine by brushing and flossing the teeth and paying regular visits to the dentist.
Porcelain veneers placement procedure
Porcelain veneers placement is a relatively fast and painless procedure, though it does require several important steps along the way. Firstly, Dr. Rozenberg treats the complete dental area with all old fillings replaced, and new tooth holes and hollows filled. Then, with the help of a special color scale, the best veneer colour is selected to ensure a perfect match with the rest of the teeth.
For better adhesion, a thin layer of tooth enamel should be filed away. This procedure is performed very carefully and only a very thin layer (about 0.02 inches) is removed. When the tooth is ready, the impression is made and sent to the laboratory to create the perfect veneer that will be later installed on the tooth with the help of special dental cement.
