Achieve a Beautiful-looking Smile after a Single Visit with Same-day Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are placed on the front surfaces of teeth to conceal chips, stains, and other cosmetic imperfections. At Greater Long Island Dental, we offer our patients beautiful custom-crafted veneers made of dental-grade porcelain.
At most other practices, patients must attend multiple appointments before their final porcelain veneers can be fabricated and placed. However, thanks to our advanced CEREC® (chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics) machine, we can provide same-day porcelain veneers at our Long Island, NY-area practice to help you achieve a gorgeous-looking smile after a single visit. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists.
Planning Your Same-day Veneers
In order to be a candidate for same-day porcelain veneers, you should be in good oral health and seeking to conceal aesthetic flaws such as chips, cracks, or blemishes on the surfaces of only a few teeth. However, if you would like to have veneers placed on more than a few teeth, it may not be possible to create and place all of them during a single appointment.
We will begin planning your treatment by removing a small layer of enamel from the front surfaces of the teeth that will be treated. This will create the necessary room for your veneers and ensure that your teeth will remain properly aligned.
Next, we will use advanced imaging technology to take detailed impressions of your teeth. Thanks to this advanced technology, you can remain comfortable during the impression process, and there is no need for messy pastes. Using special software, these impressions will be used to create a 3-D image of your teeth, allowing us to custom design your veneers so that they will complement your surrounding teeth in terms of size, shape, and color. This software even enables us to show you the anticipated results of your same-day veneers.
Crafting Your Same-day Veneers
Once the specifications of your veneers have been established, they will be milled from a solid block of dental-grade porcelain using our in-office CEREC® machine. Not only is porcelain highly durable, it also mimics the look and sheen of natural enamel. Once your veneers have been created, one of our doctors will ensure they will blend flawlessly with surrounding teeth before bonding them securely in place to instantly and dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.
Benefits of Same-day Veneers
When compared to traditional porcelain veneers that are crafted at an outside laboratory, same-day veneers offer several benefits. With same-day veneers, there is no need for multiple appointments, conventional molds for dental impressions, or temporary veneers. As a result, same-day veneers can be an ideal treatment for patients who are seeking a timely cosmetic enhancement before a big event, such as a wedding or business presentation. When you visit our practice for a consultation, we will listen closely to your goals and examine your smile to determine the type of veneers that are right for you.
