Long Island Cosmetic Dentist Providing Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are comprised of thin layers of high quality dental porcelain. In dentistry, porcelain is known for its durability, translucency, and resistance to staining. The glass-like ceramic allows light to penetrate the veneer, replicating the shimmery quality of healthy tooth enamel. When bonded to the surface of teeth, porcelain veneers exhibit incredible strength, and the material won’t tarnish due to coffee, wine, or even tobacco exposure.
The highly esthetic results and the quick and easy process makes porcelain veneers the cosmetic dentistry solution of choice. First, Dr. Mohr creates the design, potentially altering the size, shape, and color of your teeth. He may show you a preview of the design with digital imaging or a wax model. Once you’re happy with your new smile, he’ll prepare your teeth and send the specifications to the dental lab. When your porcelain veneers arrive, he will place them at a second appointment. With regular maintenance, your porcelain veneers can last for years and years!
The secret to porcelain veneers' success is their versatility. Using this one cosmetic dental treatment, we can cover up chips, stains, cracks, gaps, crooked teeth, uneven wearing, and more. They’re sometimes even called “instant orthodontics” because they can cover your misalignments and let you skip the months-long process of orthodontic treatment for mild cosmetic changes to your smile. Some patients may prefer cosmetic dental bonding instead, and for minor problems, this conservative alternative can work. However, if you’ve got more than one problem or big imperfections, nothing will match the power of porcelain veneers to create a complete smile transformation.
