Dental veneers are a popular option for patients who want to correct cosmetic defects so they can have a more attractive smile they can be proud of. Tribeca Dental Club is a top provider of veneers for patients in TriBeCa, New York, NY, using state-of-the-art materials for beautiful, custom results.
Dental veneers are very thin sheets of tooth-colored material molded to conform to the front surface of a tooth and used to correct the appearance of cosmetic issues like:
Veneers can be applied in just two office visits. At the first appointment, a small amount of tooth material will be removed from the tooth surface so the finished veneer will be level with the neighboring teeth. Then an impression will be made of the tooth and a temporary veneer will be placed over the tooth to protect it while the permanent veneer is being made. At the next appointment, the tooth surface will be carefully cleaned and prepared, and the veneer will be applied using a very strong adhesive. Finally, the veneer will be carefully buffed so it fits comfortably and looks great.
No, a tooth that’s been covered by a veneer can be brushed and flossed just like a natural tooth. Routine dental cleanings and checkups are important for making sure the veneer stays in great shape and the underlying tooth and surrounding gum remain healthy.
Today’s veneers can last a decade or longer. To avoid damaging a veneer, avoid biting or chewing on ice, hard candy, pencils, fingernails or other hard substances, and don’t use teeth as prying tools.
Veneers are designed to be very resistant to stains, however, rinsing after consuming foods or beverages known to stain can help ensure they stay looking their best. Unlike natural tooth material, veneers cannot be bleached. If they become discolored, they must be replaced. It’s also a good idea to have a professional whitening treatment before a veneer is placed so the veneer matches the neighboring teeth when they look their best.
