Love Family Dental Offers Porcelain Veneers in Astoria, NY
Veneers are thin slices of durable ceramic material that are custom made by a dental laboratory to bond to the visible side of your teeth. Veneers are made to cover minor imperfections in tooth shape or color. At Love Family Dental in Astoria, Drs. Michael and Howard Love have years of experience in beautiful and natural looking porcelain veneer placement.
Why You Should Choose Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain is a type of ceramic. Most people prefer the look and feel of porcelain veneers versus composite or other ceramic veneers due to porcelain’s natural appearance and functional design. Porcelain veneers are paper-thin and reflect light similarly to natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are very strong and individually designed for each patient. Many people opt for porcelain veneers to correct a variety of dental problems, such as:
• Gaps between teeth
• Crooked teeth
• Chipped or cracked teeth
• Stains or discolored teeth
• Misshapen teeth
The Veneer Process
Getting a perfect smile has never been so easy, quick, or pain-free! Porcelain veneers require minimal tooth preparation and can be accomplished in two simple office visits. During the first visit, tooth preparation is completed by buffing and shaping the tooth surface to make room for the veneer. Once the tooth is an optimal shape and size, Dr. Michael or Howard Love will take an impression of the tooth. During your second visit, your teeth will be cleaned to achieve a durable bond. Finally, oral bonding material will be applied between your tooth and the veneer, and a specialized light beam will be used to set the bond. Once the veneer has bonded with the rest of your natural tooth, your picture perfect smile is complete.
