Dental veneers are a simple solution for people looking to improve the appearance of their smile. They are a popular cosmetic treatment because of their customizable appearance, giving you the smile of your dreams.
Treat Yourself to a Beautiful New Smile
If you have crowding issues, chipped teeth, worn down teeth, or even areas of staining, dental veneers could be a great solution for you! Dental veneers are customizable, meaning that the shade and shape of the veneers can be adjusted to give you your dream smile. Veneers are durable, and with proper care can last for many years before needing replacement or repairs.
At Harriman Family Dental in Harriman, NY, our cosmetic experts are skilled in the art of veneer engineering and placement. First, our team will take a detailed impression of your teeth. This will allow us to custom fabricate veneers that will fit perfectly over your current/natural teeth. Next, the dentist will remove a fraction of a layer of enamel, in order to give the veneer a perfect bonding service.
Once prepared, the veneers – which are essentially very thin layers of durable ceramic material – are permanently bonded to your teeth to hide any flaws and imperfections. A variety of factors come into play when it comes to handcrafting a perfect set of porcelain veneers. At our state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry facility, we take into consideration the smallest of aesthetic details, including precisely matching the color and tone of your natural teeth. We also consider uniquely personal features like gum and lip lines, jaw contours and facial bone structures, and even your natural skin tone. When all is said and done, your porcelain veneers will perfectly complement your natural features and bring out a brilliant, beaming smile that you never knew you could have!
How do dental veneers work?
Dental veneers are incredibly thin shells that are applied on the front surfaces of a person’s teeth. Depending on the style of veneers, the teeth may be prepped first by removing a small amount of enamel. Once installed, the veneers can cover noticeable flaws to make adjustments to alignment. They can also adjust the thickness of them to improve spacing.
They are very easy to apply, requiring preparation of the teeth and then securing them in place with a strong dental adhesive.
What types of dental veneers are available?
The two main types of dental veneers are porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both are good options to help you improve your smile.
Composite veneers are manufactured in-office, using tooth-colored resin, and applied directly to the teeth. They are typically less expensive and quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, and they work well to cover up many aesthetic problems.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, out of porcelain, to fit your teeth. These are typically made in a laboratory and sent to our office. We will apply them and ensure they fit your teeth as they should. Porcelain veneers generally last longer because of the stronger material, provide a more natural look, and can fix larger cosmetic issues such as very dark stained teeth or teeth positioned incorrectly.
How long do dental veneers last?
Our veneers are made of a high-quality material that is designed to last. On average, most veneers last 10-15 years. However, with exceptional dental care, your dental veneers can last more than 20 years.
