Rejuvenate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Dr. David J. Poiman provides lasting, highly esthetic porcelain veneers at his Manhattan, NY, office. With these custom-made restorations, he can enhance the shade and shape of your smile. At NY Center for Esthetic and Laser Dentistry, our team will take great care to provide highly realistic restorations. Your veneers will be a near-perfect match to your healthy teeth, and they will maintain the natural force of your bite. With one procedure, you can significantly enhance the appearance of your smile.
What Veneers Can Address
“By concealing various cosmetic concerns at once, veneers can transform your smile, and they can rejuvenate your entire appearance.”
Dr. Poiman can use veneers to cover surface blemishes, such as cracks, chips, and severe stains. He may also recommend veneers to address misshapen teeth and dental erosion. In some cases, veneers can even function as “instant orthodontics,” concealing minor misalignment, gaps between teeth, and slightly rotated teeth. With a significantly improved smile, you may experience a boost in self-confidence and a completely rejuvenated appearance.
Are You a Candidate?
To qualify for treatment, you must have structurally sound teeth that are free from major decay. In addition, you must have adequate dental enamel. If you do not qualify for veneers, we may recommend another cosmetic procedure, or require that you undergo restorative treatment before receiving veneers.
Planning Your Treatment
Before you undergo treatment, you will meet with Dr. Poiman to discuss in depth what you hope to achieve with veneers. Together, you can design restorations that are based on your exact needs and goals. Your smile design will be truly unique. If veneers cannot accomplish your desired effects, Dr. Poiman can discuss other esthetic options to achieve your dream smile.
The Placement Process
Before placing veneers, Dr. Poiman will carefully reshape your teeth to create room for the porcelain to lay flat. Our office uses advanced laser dentistry, so you can enjoy gentle, precise procedures with virtually no discomfort. We will then take impressions, which the lab will use as they fabricate your veneers. These traditional restorations will take about two weeks to finish, during which time, we will provide you with temporaries.
Dr. Poiman also provides specialized minimal-prep veneers. These innovative veneers are incredibly lifelike, and will require that less, if any, of your natural tooth structure be removed. You will most likely not require any temporary veneers, but will have to wait about two weeks for your custom restorations to be completed.
After your veneers are finished, you will return to our office for a second visit. To place your restorations, Dr. Poiman may apply a mild chemical solution, which will produce microscopic fissures. This process ensures your teeth will have more surface area, and your veneers will be able to bond more securely to your teeth. After checking that your veneers fit correctly, Dr. Poiman will attach them for a completely transformed smile.
