Most dental procedures are designed to address a specific issue, such as teeth-whitening for tooth stains or braces for crooked teeth. Unfortunately, unsightly tooth imperfections don’t always occur one at a time, and cosmetic dentistry procedures are often combined to fully makeover significantly flawed teeth. Porcelain veneers, provided by your Astoria cosmetic dentist, offer a conservative solution to address multiple problems at once, creating an instant smile makeover and eliminating the need for several cosmetic dental procedures. Below, we list the top three benefits of handcrafted porcelain veneers, and why they’re the preferred solution in many full smile makeover cases.
Typically, porcelain veneers can be placed in as little as two visits. During the first visit, Dr. Leibowitz will prepare the teeth by removing a minimal amount of tooth enamel (about .5mm) to accommodate the veneers. Then, a mold of your teeth will be sent to a trusted dental lab to mill your custom veneers. At your next visit, Dr. Leibowitz will carefully bond your final porcelain veneers to the fronts of the prepared teeth, creating a new face for your smile in a single procedure.
#2—They Can Multi-Task
To revamp your smile’s outward appearance, porcelain veneers can correct a number of different issues, including internal tooth discoloration, chips and minor cracks, odd spaces between teeth, and slightly crooked teeth.
#4—They Look Real
Every veneer is crafted to mimic the front surface of a specific tooth. The porcelain is tinted to your natural teeth’s color, and layered to reflect light in the same manner as tooth enamel. When placed with Dr. Leibowitz’ skill and artistic eye, porcelain veneers are virtually indistinguishable from healthy, natural teeth.
