You give so much to others. You work, serve your family and are kind to friends and neighbors. The appearance your smile, however, weighs heavily on you. Yes, your teeth are healthy, but they don't look it. Dark stains and cracks mask the vibrant you inside. Why not give yourself something wonderful--a smile you can truly love? At New York Dental Studio, Dr. Brandon Huang uses his artistic and finely-honed dental skills to create smiles that express an individual's true self. Porcelain veneers in Midtown Manhattan, NY are one of his cosmetic treatments that change smiles and lives.
What are porcelain veneers?
Also called dental laminates, porcelain veneers refinish flawed enamel by covering the front side of teeth with natural-looking ceramic. Custom-made at a trusted area dental lab, veneers are tooth-shaped, tooth-colored and permanently placed to rejuvenate smile aesthetics.
How does the process work? First, book a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Huang. He'll examine your teeth and gums, take some X-rays to ensure your mouth is free of decay and gum disease. This information will help him craft a detailed treatment plan. Also, you will discuss how you wish to improve your smile. So be sure to think specifically about this before your consultation.
The treatment itself is comfortable. Dr. Huang will gently remove about 1/2 mm of enamel from each tooth receiving a porcelain veneer. This minimal reduction allows the veneers to bond well and fit and bite properly. After taking oral impressions, he will cover your teeth with temporary laminates.
After a week or two, your individually sculpted and colored veneers will return from the dental lab. Your dentist will remove the temporaries and bond the new veneers in place. The bonding adhesive may be adjusted for color, achieving a beautiful, natural look.
Caring for veneers in Midtown Manhattan
Nothing really changes about your oral hygiene habits when you have porcelain veneers. Dr. Huang simply asks you to floss daily and brush according to the American Dental Association guidelines. Also, he wants all his patients to come to New York Dental Studio twice year for their usual cleanings and check-ups.
Finally, treat your veneers gently. Don't tear open packages with your teeth, chew your pencils or chomp into hard candy or ice cubes. If you grind your teeth, ask Dr. Huang about a night guard to avoid cracking your veneers and wearing down your natural tooth enamel.
