A Powerful, Versatile Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure
Porcelain veneers, sometimes referred to as instant orthodontics, are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available today. The reason for this is obvious: porcelain veneers are capable of correcting a large number of common cosmetic dental problems. They can correct them all at the same time, so with one quick procedure you can have a new, beautiful smile.
Porcelain veneers can address cosmetic and functional issues including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Unevenly spaced or gapped teeth
- Unevenly sized or shaped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Severely discolored teeth
Used alone or as part of a smile makeover, the porcelain veneers offered at Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake offer long-lasting, remarkably beautiful results.
Our Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are placed over your existing teeth. We also offer Lumineers®, a type of porcelain veneers that can be used with little to no preparation of your teeth. The type of porcelain veneer that is right for you will be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. George Sepiashvili or Dr. Wanda Mejia.
The procedure for all of our dental veneers is similar. If you are getting traditional veneers, then during your first visit, our cosmetic dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel before making an impression of your teeth to send to one of our dental lab partners. You will then be fitted with temporary dental veneers to wear until your permanent veneers have been created. The creation process generally takes one to two weeks. With Lumineers, you may not need to have enamel removed or have temporary veneers made.
Our cosmetic dentists have partnered with Aurum and DaVinci Labs, two of the most recognized and respected porcelain restoration labs in America. Our choice of labs ensures that your porcelain veneers will be specifically sized, shaped, and colored to match your adjacent teeth, and will provide the strongest and most seamlessly beautiful results possible.
