Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a common cosmetic dentistry procedure patients frequently seek out at our New York City office. Porcelain veneers can treat broken, damaged, or discolored teeth, as well as teeth that are simply too small or misaligned. They are a durable and beautiful solution to restore the natural look and feel of a tooth. Porcelain veneers can help when enamel has been worn down due to acidic foods and drinks or grinding, when teeth break or chip, or when teeth are stained due to factors such as tetracycline or fluorosis. Dental veneers require less enamel to be removed than traditional methods like dental crowns. Dr. John offers porcelain veneers so you achieve the most natural-looking smile.

WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is crafted to fit over your tooth. Porcelain veneers look like natural teeth and can help achieve a symmetrical smile. Porcelain veneers are a versatile treatment and can be used to improve broken or damaged teeth, discolored teeth, or an asymmetrical smile. Porcelain veneers can also close a gap in your smile and protect worn down enamel. Porcelain veneers are custom-made in a lab by hand to ensure the most natural-looking appearance possible. A master ceramist layers porcelain to create a truly natural result. Each case is always custom-made to be one-of-a-kind and fit perfectly with your smile.

Porcelain veneers are durable and offer the most natural-looking results compared to other types of restorations. We also provide prep-less veneers which require very little to no enamel of the tooth to be removed prior to placing the veneers. Prepless veneers are also a good option if you have undersized teeth, but not everyone is a candidate for prepless veneers. A consultation with Dr. John Koutsoyiannis can determine if you are, or if more traditional veneers are what you would need.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR PORCELAIN VENEERS IN NYC?

Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers are patients with healthy gum tissue who are looking to improve the appearance of their smile. Porcelain veneers are often used for patients suffering from enamel erosion, overly small teeth, damaged teeth, or stained teeth. Patients looking to improve the size, shape, symmetry, or color of their teeth may be ideal candidates for porcelain veneers in NYC.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY PORCELAIN VENEER TREATMENT?

Before your porcelain veneer treatment, Dr. John will perform a dental evaluation. During this evaluation, Dr. John will examine the health of your gums and your overall oral health to determine whether porcelain veneers are right for you. Digital x-rays will be taken prior to any restorative dental work. Photos and impressions for Wax Up study models will be taken prior to the start of your treatment in order to begin the planning of your custom veneer case. A few days later, after the case has been reviewed and discussed between the ceramist and Dr. John, your first appointment will begin with Dr. John performing the preparation of your teeth. We take great pride in preserving as much of the original tooth structure as possible, ensuring a very conservative preparation every time. Impressions of your teeth will be taken for your porcelain veneers. Sohosmile® will match your eventual veneer shade to your teeth or to what shade you prefer. While your porcelain veneers are being created, temporary veneers are placed until your final set of porcelain veneers are completed. These are used as a “blueprint” of what the final porcelain veneers will look like in your mouth. By taking this extra effort, Dr. John provides his patients with a realistic prototype of what the eventual case will look like.

Within 1-2 weeks after your first visit, your porcelain veneers are finished. After checking the color and the fit, a dental adhesive is used to bind each veneer to your tooth. Blue spectrum light speeds up the adhesion process. Following the placement of your porcelain veneers, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER RECEIVING PORCELAIN VENEERS IN NYC?

Following the placement of porcelain veneers, there will be a short adjustment period. Patients may experience tooth sensitivity or transient changes in sensations when chewing, speaking, or smiling. These are completely normal after receiving porcelain veneers. For the majority of patients, these symptoms will quickly fade within 1-2 weeks. During this time, it is best to avoid crunchy, chewy, or tough foods. Additionally, overly hot or cold foods and drinks should be avoided as you adjust to your porcelain veneers.
