Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic flaws can leave you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your smile.

Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution that can address many dental problems.

Learn how Dr. Michael Feldstein and the team at Jewel Dental Associates in Flushing, NY, can transform your smile.

How Porcelain Veneers Work Covering the Basics

Porcelain veneers are a simple and versatile treatment option for aesthetic imperfections that affect the front teeth. Here is what patients should know.

Ultra-Thin Porcelain Shells

Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of strong porcelain that fit over the front of a tooth. A little bit of enamel is removed to produce a seamless and snug fit.

Mask Imperfections

Think of a dental veneer as a mask for a tooth. When a veneer is in place, it covers up dental imperfections, helping your tooth look naturally flawless and perfect.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

When you visit our Flushing practice, we'll perform a full exam and determine if you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Many veneers patients meet the criteria below:

Self-Conscious About Their Appearance

If you have cosmetic flaws that affect the look of your smile, you probably want to make a positive change. Veneers can transform teeth that are discolored, damaged, or otherwise imperfect.

Sufficient Tooth Enamel

A small amount of enamel is removed to accommodate a porcelain veneer. Patients need to have enough healthy enamel on their tooth so the veneer can be safely and seamlessly placed.

Good Overall Dental Health

Patients should have generally healthy teeth and not suffer from cavities, gum disease, teeth grinding (bruxism), or other issues. Problems must be resolved before undergoing cosmetic care.

Commitment to Lasting Change

After getting veneers, it's important that patients take aftercare seriously. That means good hygiene, regular dentist visits, and following aftercare instructions to ensure their veneers last for years.

A Treatment Timeline The Veneers Placement Process

From start to finish, it only takes two weeks for a patient to get custom veneers. Here is a step-by-step look at the treatment process:
At the dental lab, skilled technicians will create custom porcelain veneers that fit precisely.
At the dental lab, skilled technicians will create custom porcelain veneers that fit precisely.

Initial Consultation

During the initial visit, we'll take digital x-rays and discuss your dental health goals. We'll let you know which cosmetic dentistry options are right for you.

Prepping Teeth

If veneers are right for your needs, we'll prep the tooth or teeth. This involves removing less than a millimeter of enamel so the porcelain shell sits flush against adjacent teeth.

Taking Impressions

Once the teeth are prepped, we take digital impressions. These impressions are sent to skilled technicians at an off-site lab where the custom dental veneers are made.

Temporary Veneers

In the meantime, temporary veneers are placed over the prepped teeth. Patients should follow all instructions from the dentist to care for the temporary veneers.

Crafting Custom Veneers

At the dental lab, skilled technicians will create custom porcelain veneers that fit precisely. They will also match the color of the porcelain shell to your natural teeth.

Placing Final Veneers

When the permanent veneers are ready, the temporary ones are removed. Your dentist will check the fit one last time before your final porcelain veneers are secured in place.

Even the most flawed smile can be enhanced thanks to dental veneers. That's why dentists and patients love these ultra-thin shells of durable porcelain.

FAQs Frequently Asked Question

How Many Veneers Should I Get?

Dr. Feldstein will work closely with you to understand what you don't like about your smile and what your goals are. By understanding your concerns, he can determine if you need just one veneer or a full set to create the balance and symmetry that are the hallmarks of a beautiful smile.

How Do I Get Veneers to Match My Other Teeth?

Dr. Feldstein takes great care during the planning process to ensure your veneers not only camouflage problems but also blend in with your teeth to create a natural, symmetrical smile. In addition to being skilled in the use of advanced technology, he has years of hands-on experience in planning and placing veneers. He takes into account the size, shape, and color of your teeth so your smile will look completely natural.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Because a small amount of enamel needs to be removed from your teeth, the procedure to get porcelain veneers is not reversible. Just like any dental restoration, a veneer can break or fall off. If a veneer is damaged, you will have to replace it with a new one to avoid complications.

What's the Difference Between a Veneer and a Crown?

While dental crowns are typically used to repair damaged or decayed teeth, they can also be used cosmetically to improve a tooth that is small or misshapen. Unlike a veneer, which is a thin shell placed on the front of a tooth, a crown covers a tooth on all sides like a cap. Dr. Feldstein can help determine whether crowns or veneers are the best solution in your situation.
