If you are looking to boost the appearance of your smile, dental veneers may be the right treatment for you. Dental veneers can be used for a subtle or dramatic smile makeover, depending on your unique needs and goals. An experienced and highly trained cosmetic dentist in the Albany, NY area, Dr. Frederick Marra uses high quality porcelain materials for a beautiful, natural looking result that will be durable and lasting.
About Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer is a permanent dental restoration that covers the front and sides of a tooth. Veneers can be commonly used to:
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked or misshaped teeth
- Change the shape or length of teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
Made of high quality ultra-thin, translucent materials, porcelain veneers are durable, stain resistant and reflect light much like natural teeth for a beautiful result that can last for years with proper dental care.
PORCELAIN VENEERS: WHAT TO CONSIDER
Porcelain veneers will provide a natural looking, comfortable and permanent result that can make over your smile and support lasting dental health with good oral hygiene and dental care. Dr. Marra will perform a thorough exam and discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.
Cosmetic tooth bonding is an economical alternative that may be more suitable for younger patients or those not yet ready to commit to the cost of porcelain veneers.
PORCELAIN VENEERS: WHAT TO EXPECT
The porcelain veneer procedure will require several visits with us in our Cohoes, NY dentist office.
After the initial treatment planning, a visit will be scheduled for taking impressions to be used in the fabrication of your custom porcelain veneers. During this visit, the tooth surface will be prepared for placing the final restorations. This involves removing as little of the tooth structure as possible to address any dental health or cosmetic concerns being treated and ensure a secure fit.
The final visit includes placement and cementing of your porcelain veneers- and the reveal of your new smile. Dr. Marra will make any last minute adjustments for fit and comfort. We will also provide information on how best to care for your new restorations for lasting results.
