  • 1. This article explains what porcelain veneers are, including the procedure, and the aftercare. After Your Impressions Are Made… The next thing your dentist will do is prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers by removing some of the outer portion of your enamel. This way, when the veneers are placed on your teeth they will not add “extra” thickness to your teeth that might interfere with speech or comfort. You will be given a local anesthetic, so the procedure of shaving down the outside surface of your teeth will not cause you any discomfort. Then, to protect your teeth from hot and cold while you are waiting for your porcelain veneers in NYC to be made by the ceramicist, you will immediately be given temporary veneers to wear home. The temporary veneers will look somewhat like your porcelain veneers in shape and size, and in many cases they will actually look much better than your natural teeth did to begin with. Therefore, the temporary veneers are a “step up” from what you started with naturally, but still far less glamorous than your actual porcelain veneers will look. The temporary veneers are made from an acrylic material, so they won’t have the glossy, captivating texture that the porcelain veneers will have. They will also not be as durable as the porcelain. Therefore, while you’re wearing the temporary veneers it will be important to stick to soft- textured foods (to prevent damaging the temporaries) and clear liquids (to prevent staining). In most cases, you will only have to wear these temporary veneers for a few days. Since you will not be able to brush and floss your teeth normally with the temporary veneers, you will have to use a hydrofloss or similar instrument to clean them with water pressure. Your cosmetic dentist will give you the appropriate cleaning instruments, with instructions.
  • 2. The Final Step: Your Celebrity Smile Finally, when your custom-made dental veneers in NYC have been made by the ceramicist and sent to your dentist’s office, you will go in for the final step towards getting your beautiful, celebrity smile. You will be glad to say goodbye to the temporary veneers, and eager to say hello to your new smile. During this final procedure, you can simply sit back and relax in the dental chair while your dentist does all the magic. Getting your porcelain veneers put onto the surface of your teeth is a painless process, and you’ll receive a local anesthetic to ensure your optimal comfort. Your dentist will place the veneers on your teeth with no adhesive first to make sure they all fit properly and are free of any imperfections. You can look at them and make sure they are just as lovely as you expected. Then, to prepare your teeth for the dental adhesive, a material called acid etch will be used. This makes the surface of your teeth rough so that the adhesive will stick and your veneers won’t be in any danger of falling off when you bite into a hard or chewy food. After the acid etch, the dental cement will be applied to the front of your teeth as well as the back of each veneer. Each veneer will be added individually to each tooth. When the entire procedure is finally done, your dentist will make a final impression of your mouth to safeguard against any bite misalignments or other problems. Your veneers should feel comfortable and your speech should not be affected. Aftercare You will be able to brush and floss your teeth with the veneers the same way that you brushed and flossed your teeth before. Unlike dental bridges, porcelain veneers in NYC are meant to function just like natural teeth. The only precautions you may need to take are to avoid biting into hard items such as ice cubes or hard candy because they may chip or fracture the veneers. You will also want to avoid using your teeth to open things, such as beer bottles and bags of chips. After 10 -15 years, you may need to have one or more veneers replaced or repaired. Regular dental cleanings three or four times each year are recommended. You may also want to wear a mouth guard at night to prevent grinding your porcelain veneers into your natural enamel.
