Each veneer is custom designed and fabricated to hide blemishes and improve the appearance of the overall smile. They can be used to correct a small chip or crack or several may be used for a total smile makeover. Veneers will give you a beautiful, natural looking result.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

Receiving a porcelain veneer is a multi-phased procedure resulting in a beautiful, lasting smile. From treatment planning to the final fitting, Roslyn, NY cosmetic dentist, Dr. Diana Pop will work with you through every step. Receiving a veneer will begin with a personalized evaluation and consultation with Dr. Pop. You will discuss your cosmetic goals to ensure that the end result meets your needs.

At the next visit, Dr. Pop will prepare the teeth to be treated by removing a minimal amount of tooth surface structure (about one half of a millimeter) for optimal, comfortable placement of the veneers.

Next, dental impressions will be taken of the prepared teeth and used in fabricating your porcelain veneers. The impressions are sent to a dental lab where a skilled ceramist will craft the veneers by hand. The veneers will be ready for the final fit within two to three weeks.

Once your custom-made veneers are ready you will return to Bella Smiles Roslyn to have them permanently secured. Dr. Pop will make any necessary adjustments for the best fit. She’ll use bonding cement and a special light to permanently affix your veneers and revitalize your smile.

With good oral hygiene and proper routine dental care twice a year at our Roslyn, NY dentist office, your porcelain veneers can last for many years.
