If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you may feel less confident during your daily activities. Fortunately, improving your smile may be possible with the help of a dentist. With custom-fitted porcelain veneers in NYC Upper West Side, you’ll be photo-ready in approximately one to two weeks.
Created with thin, natural-looking porcelain, veneers are used to cover discolored, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Cosmetic dentists also use veneers to treat minor alignment issues, including small gaps between the teeth. Quality porcelain veneers in NYC Upper West Side are available in multiple shades and are designed to match your natural teeth. These appliances are ideal for patients that have generally healthy teeth and wish to repair minor cosmetic flaws. Find out if you’re a candidate for veneers by giving us a call.
Every patient has unique needs, so the porcelain veneers cost varies from person to person. Typically, the condition of your teeth, the type of materials used to fabricate the veneer, and your insurance coverage will determine your out-of-pocket costs. Even if your insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic procedures, flexible financing may make the cost of veneers more affordable. Give us a call to learn more about insurance coverage or financing options.
Both porcelain crowns and veneers can be used to correct cosmetic dental issues, but there are some key differences between the two. Dentists usually recommend a crown when the patient has a severely damaged tooth that must be “capped” for protection. On the other hand, veneers porcelain are recommended for patients who have healthy teeth and gums. Veneers are ideal for the front teeth, while crowns are typically recommended to correct flaws in the back teeth.
Getting veneers usually requires two dental appointments. One appointment to prepare the teeth, and another to fit and adjust the new appliance. During the first visit, the dentist will examine your teeth and may use molds to create an impression of your mouth. Then, a thin layer of enamel may need to be removed to accommodate the veneer. Once the final veneer arrives, you’ll return to the office for a fitting and adjustment.
With proper oral hygiene, veneers can last for several decades. Keep your new veneer in great condition by scheduling regular dental exams at our office. It’s also important to avoid using your new porcelain teeth to open bottles, bags, or other items.
