At Brooklyn Dental Studio, porcelain veneers are carefully planned for each patient.
Our veneers are made by the top ceramic technicians in New York City. We use the highest quality, high strength materials and guarantee outstanding aesthetics, health and longevity.
Beautifully, crafted veneers can alter your whole smile, whether you need 20 veneers or a single veneer.
Single Porcelain Veneer
This patient had a history of trauma on her front tooth, it was beginning to discolor to the point that she no longer would smile. Internal whitening was attempted without success. A single feldspathic, porcelain veneer was placed.
Front Teeth Porcelain Veneers
This patient had a large composite and irregular spacing. We placed two porcelain veneers. With minimal treatment we achieved a natural, life-like solution.
Full Arch Porcelain Veneers
This patient hated his chipped, worn, stained teeth, with multiple large resin fillings. We whitened his lower teeth and placed high-strength veneers on his upper teeth, obtaining a bright, healthy, youthful smile.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
Porcelain Veneers are ceramic facings that are bonded to your teeth to reshape teeth, close gaps, cover stains, or treat chipped or broken teeth. The natural translucency and fluorescence of porcelain, combined with the excellence of our technicians and the high standards of our dentists, produce veneers which seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.
I recently worked with Dr. Wolfe on my veneers and they came out beautifully! My wedding was a few months later, and my teeth really are the star of every photo. Highly recommend her studio!Elizabeth L.
Porcelain Veneer: Procedure Overview
We conduct a precise dental procedure which typically takes two or three office visits. Initially we will do an impression and your temporary veneer, followed by surface etching and final veneer.
Impression and Temporary Veneer
In your first appointment, an impression of your existing smile will be taken to act as a guide for creating the temporary restoration. After the impression, the natural tooth structure must be reduced by a fraction of a millimeter to make room for the veneer. Once the tooth is prepared either a 3D scan or impression of the tooth (or teeth) is taken. In addition, your dentist will match the shade of your natural smile. Your dentist will then create a temporary veneer with tooth colored composite. While this isn’t the final product, your dentist will take great care to match the color and contour of your smile. The final impression of the prepared teeth and shade will be sent to our laboratory where the veneer will be custom crafted to meet the exact specifications outlined by your dentist.
Surface Etching and Final Veneer
In your second appointment, the temporary veneers will be removed, and the surface of the teeth are etched in order to create a rough surface, which will enable the veneer to bond better to the tooth. After etching, the final veneer is bonded to the tooth using cement. Your dentist will evaluate your bite and ensure that you are comfortable with your fantastic new smile.
