Team Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental Veneeers

Would you like to quickly and dramatically improve your smile? Are you looking for a way to correct cosmetic imperfections in your teeth? If so, look no further than porcelain veneers.

With some of the best cosmetic dentists in Manhattan, Koppelman Dental specializes in porcelain veneers. We can help you achieve a smile makeover you'll be proud to show off.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the appearance of crooked teeth, change the size or shape of a tooth, close gaps between teeth, or cover stained or discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers can also help protect and strengthen weak or chipped teeth.

Treatment with porcelain veneers can correct a single tooth or multiple teeth. The procedure involves removing a small amount of enamel from each tooth, which provides a framework onto which the porcelain veneer is bonded. Veneers are durable and resistant to staining and wear.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for improving your smile since they can be used to cover discolored teeth or fix gaps between teeth. When created and applied by an expert dentist, porcelain veneers are highly durable and long-lasting.

Porcelain veneers can create a more even color across your teeth or completely change your smile. They’re removable and easily replaced if necessary, unlike other cosmetic dental solutions.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thinner and have a more natural appearance than veneers made of other materials. They allow you to maintain the natural color of your teeth if you wish, which can’t be achieved with other cosmetic dental procedures.

Porcelain veneers can be placed only on certain teeth to hide imperfections while leaving most of your natural teeth visible. This is great if there are specific areas of your smile you want to change but want to preserve the rest of your teeth as they are. 

The porcelain will look so real that no one will be able to tell you have veneers unless you tell them. In fact, many people who’ve undergone this procedure have had friends and family comment on how great their teeth look without ever realizing that they had veneers done. 

A New Smile Custom-Designed for You

Treatment with porcelain veneers typically begins with a dental exam and x-rays. Your dentist will examine your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

The dentist will then take detailed impressions of your teeth, from which your veneers will be created. With most dental practices, the impressions are sent out to a dental lab, which delays the process by days or even weeks. 

But when you get your porcelain veneers at Koppelman Dental, this delay is unnecessary. Koppelman has a special 3D printer onsite to create your custom veneers without delay. Using augmented reality technology, we can show you before-and-after images of what you’ll look like with your new veneers before we even get started. 

Specialists in porcelain veneers, the expert cosmetic dentists at Koppelman Dental make the process of getting veneers pain-free and quicker than other dental practices.
