Porcelain veneers part 1 (new york cosmetic dentist 10019)

  1. 1. Porcelain Veneers (Part 1) Dr. Catrise Austin
  2. 2. Porcelain Veneers (Part 1) §  Elliot Yamin, former American Idol contestant and now bonafide pop star, took a lot of flack for his teeth before, during and after the hit TV show – and responded with great veneers that took his smile from the Dlist straight to the red carpet! And Disney sensation and pop star Miley Cyrus helped bridge the gaps in her teeth by reportedly having veneers put on. §  Other stars that have gotten veneers and have been in the media for it include Hillary Duff, rapper 50 Cent, singer Keyshia Cole, Lil Kim, Christina Aguilera and Chris Rock. Although not the most cost effective for those on a budget, veneers are THE procedure that can give you that Hollywood A-List Smile with guaranteed red carpet results.
  3. 3. Porcelain Veneers (Part 1) §  What do they do? Porcelain veneers are excellent for restoring the appearance of teeth that have been damaged due to injury or that are discolored, chipped or misaligned. The color, shape, length and size of your teeth can be completely altered with high-quality porcelain veneers. Any dentist who is an expert in cosmetic dentistry can make you look younger and more attractive with porcelain veneers. §  Porcelain veneers replace the enamel of your teeth by bonding to the front of each tooth. I compare them to “fake fingernails,” but for the teeth. Like natural enamel, these thin, glass-like veneers are translucent and light-absorbing, which creates a natural and luminescent appearance. With porcelain veneers, you can have the beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted. §  How does the procedure work?
  4. 4. Porcelain Veneers (Part 1) §  During your first office visit, your dentist will walk you through the various stages of your porcelain veneers procedure, allowing you to take an active role in designing your new smile. Your dentist may need to administer anesthesia depending on how much tooth structure has to be removed to achieve the desired results. Next, your teeth will be buffed and reshaped as needed. Generally only about half a millimeter of enamel will be removed. §  A putty mold of your teeth will then be made in preparation for the laboratory ceramist to design and make your new porcelain teeth for bonding during your second office visit. The ceramist has to carefully hand sculpt each and every tooth to your desired color and shape that was selected during the smile design phase. Your dentist will complete your first visit by making temporary veneers to replace the enamel that was removed. These temporary veneers are made of acrylic and, if planned properly, can be made from the wax-up model of your new smile that was made during the smile design process to give you a sneak preview of your new smile.
  5. 5. Porcelain Veneers (Part 1) §  During your second visit, your dentist will administer anesthesia to prepare you for the removal of your temporary veneers. Next, your new porcelain veneers will be fitted to your teeth with temporary glue for viewing your new smile. §  You should look at your new smile from different angles, different sized mirrors, and under different lighting. In my office, I have my patients look first in a hand held mirror in the chair, then in a vanity mirror on the wall of the bathroom, and finally a full length mirror. The goal is to see the veneers under different scenarios to make sure that you like them, before they are permanently bonded to your teeth.
  6. 6. Porcelain Veneers (Part 1) §  If there is something that you don’t like about the veneers, you can request that the veneers be sent back to be remade to your specification at no additional cost. However, once they are bonded with permanent glue, the veneers are yours to keep and any changes that are requested may cost you handsomely. Upon your approval, your new porcelain veneers will be bonded permanently and polished to give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
