Would you like to quickly and dramatically change the appearance of your smile? Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded onto your teeth, transforming your smile without the need for extensive cosmetic or orthodontic procedures. Dr. Vito Clarizio, the Whitestone, NY dentist, offers porcelain veneers for patients who want rapid results.
What Are Porcelain Veneers in Whitestone, NY?
The first step is an initial consultation with Dr. Clarizio to evaluate the condition of your teeth and discuss with you how you would like your smile to look. Dr. Clarizio will explain the results that may be obtained as well as the process of placing porcelain veneers.
During your second visit, your teeth will be prepared to accommodate the veneers. The veneers are roughly .05 millimeters in thickness and a portion of your tooth enamel must be removed to ensure that there are no changes in your bite. Therefore, Dr. Clarizio will remove your surface enamel and take an impression of your teeth to create an accurate measurement from which to custom design your veneers.
Your final visit will be scheduled when your custom veneers are ready for placement, roughly three weeks after the impression is taken. Dr. Clarizio will adjust the color or shape of your veneers, if necessary, and etch your natural teeth to facilitate a strong bond between the two. Dr. Clarizio applies dental cement to your natural teeth before positioning your veneers, using a curing lamp to control the speed at which the cement sets. This allows him to achieve ideal placement of your porcelain veneers.
