Traditional Porcelain Veneers
Traditional porcelain veneers are tooth shaped porcelain shells that are bonded onto the front surface of a tooth. Porcelain veneers completely cover and conceal the aesthetic imperfections of a patient’s natural teeth. Traditional porcelain veneers are permanently placed for a brilliant and lasting smile in only two office visits! With proper maintenance, traditional porcelain veneers can last for many years without the need for adjustment.
Placing Traditional Porcelain Veneers
As mentioned above, only two office visits are required for proper and permanent placement of traditional porcelain veneers. The first visit is for consultation and preparation of the patient’s teeth. The second visit is for the removal of attractive temporary veneers and permanent bonding and placement of custom laboratory fabricated porcelain veneers. In about two weeks time and two office visits you can have the confidence of the beautiful smile that you have always wanted!

Often referred to as “minimal preparation” porcelain veneers, LUMINEERS® do not require removal of any of the natural structure of teeth prior to placement. In fact, LUMINEERS® are crafted from ultra-thin translucent porcelain and are roughly the thickness of a common contact lens. These porcelain veneers fit snugly over the tooth to conceal aesthetic flaws. An added benefit of LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers is that they are permanent yet removable by a dentist if the patient desires.
Placing LUMINEERS® Porcelain Veneers
Placement of LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers requires two trips to our Brooklyn, NY office. During the first visit the dentist will take a comprehensive mold of the the patient’s mouth and teeth which will then be sent to LUMINEERS® laboratory where the patient’s veneers will be custom fabricated. Patients do not need to wear temporary veneers while awaiting the arrival of their LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers because the tooth structure remains intact. Once the LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers are ready (usually in approximately one week), the patient returns to our office to have the veneers placed by an expert cosmetic dentist. The dentist will use a high grade dental cement to bond the LUMINEERS® to the patient’s teeth. Finally, the dentist will ensure proper fitment and bite of the surrounding teeth and then buffs the veneers to a shine. The process is now complete and the patient leaves our office with a dazzling new smile.
