Types of Porcelain Veneers
We provide traditional veeneers. Patients should chose carefully and with the guidance of an experienced porcelain veneers dentist. Contact our office in Brooklyn NY to learn more about what type of veneer may best suit you.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers
Traditional porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of the tooth. Veneers completely conceal flaws, transforming the smile in just two office visits. Once in place, traditional veneers are non-removable and can last for many years with proper maintenance.
Placement of Traditional Porcelain Veneers
The placement process for traditional veneers requires two office visits: one to prepare the teeth and a second to place the veneers. The dentist begins each visit by administering a local anesthetic. The patient wears attractive temporary veneers between visits (usually approximately one week) while the lab crafts the permanent veneers. To learn more about having veneers placed, the benefits of veneers, and other information, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
LUMINEERS® Porcelain Veneers
Often referred to as “minimal prep” porcelain veneers, LUMINEERS® do not necessitate removal of the natural tooth structure prior to placement. Instead, LUMINEERS® are crafted of ultra-thin translucent porcelain (about the thickness of a contact lens) that fits snugly over the tooth. LUMINEERS® can also be removed by a dentist if the patient desires.
Placement of LUMINEERS® Veneers
Placing LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers requires two trips to our Brooklyn, NY office. In the first visit, the dentist takes a mold of the patient’s teeth and mouth, which he sends to the LUMINEERS® laboratory that will custom-craft the veneers. The patient need not wear temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready, since the tooth structure is left intact. When the veneers are ready (usually in approximately one week), the patient returns to our office to have the veneers placed. In this visit, the dentist uses a dental-grade cement to bond the LUMINEERS® to the teeth. Finally, he assures the veneers’ fit with the surrounding teeth and bite and buffs the veneers to a shine. The patient leaves our office with a dazzling new smile.
