In addition, we make extensive efforts to provide our patients with up-to-date treatment information. When it comes to preparing for porcelain veneers, there are a few things patient could keep in mind before going in for their treatment. Today, our team is going to outline these in order to give you the best veneers experience possible!
General Info About Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of ceramic that are fixed to the fronts of a patient’s teeth. When in place, porcelain veneers are able to mask stains, chips, cracks, and various sorts of alignment and spacing issues.
The best thing about veneers in Brooklyn is that they are semi-translucent, which means that light is able to pass through them in a similar way as natural tooth structure. In other words, no one will realize that you have a porcelain veneer there.
Why Prepare for Veneers?
While porcelain veneers are very thin, some of your tooth enamel will be removed in order to accommodate the veneer. This helps ensure the most seamless and aesthetically pleasing results possible. Less than 1 millimeter of the tooth’s enamel will be removed in order to accommodate the veneer, and great care is taken to ensure that as much of the patient’s natural tooth structure remains as possible.
What To Expect
Local anesthetic may be used during the preparation process in order to reduce discomfort. Most of our veneer patients report not feeling a thing, or slight discomfort at most.
After cleaning the teeth, your dentist will work carefully to remove a very small amount of the tooth enamel in order to accommodate the porcelain veneer. An impression will then be taken of the prepped tooth or teeth. It is from this impression that your porcelain veneer will be custom-crafted. The impression is sent to an off-site dental lab for creation of the dental restoration. In the meantime, you will be given temporary veneers that mimic your natural teeth, just as your final veneers will.
