Hello! We are so glad you came to the Staten Island dental health blog. This is the place where we take the time to answer some of the questions cosmetic dentistry patients in the NYC area are curious about.
Today we are discussing veneers. You may have heard the word veneer used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry, and that is because they are a popular and effective cosmetic dentistry tool.
Veneers are covers for the front part of the teeth. They are usually used to correct tooth imperfections, such as chipping, staining, decay, or crooked teeth. Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.
The first step in the veneer process is to make a mold to work from. Your Brooklyn, Manhattan, or Bayonne dentist will make the model of your teeth. After that, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers.
It is important to note that because a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.
If you are in the Bayonne area and are looking for a dentist, give Staten Island Dental Care a call. My name is Dr. Frederick Hecht and I have been serving Staten Island, New York since 1976.
Please call 718-761-5757 and a member of our kind staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, dental care, or smile makeovers.
