Dental Veneers From Your Dentists in Staten Island
Designed to cover the front surface of one or more teeth, dental veneers are very thin shells that are crafted from porcelain or composite resins to alter the length, color, and shape of teeth, creating a more aesthetically pleasing look. At Drs. Galligan & Villa Dental Studio in Staten Island, we’ve seen the transformative effects of this cosmetic service time and time again!
What does the dental veneer process involve?
After sharing your smile vision with us during your consultation, we’ll examine your teeth and gums visually and with x-rays to confirm your candidacy for treatment. Assuming you’re a viable candidate and you’d like to proceed with this service, we’ll walk you through the steps involved with veneer application.
Veneer procedures often require two separate appointments – one to have impressions of your mouth and teeth created, and another to have them applied. Once your professional impressions have been crafted – the timeline for this process can vary between 2 and 4 weeks – our dentist will ensure that your veneers have the ideal shape, size, color, and fit for your smile before placing them. Once it’s been confirmed that your veneers complement your smile, they’ll be bonded to your prepared tooth/teeth. A curing light will be used and any finishing touches will be performed before the service is complete.
How long do veneers typically last?
With diligent daily oral hygiene practices, patients can expect veneers to last upwards of 10 years. They require the same care as your natural teeth and they should not be used for chewing fingernails or opening plastic packaging.
