Dental Veneers by Sola Dental
Our patients from New York and New Jersey areas come to us to experience the true artistic experience of our cosmetic dentist Dr Anne Gershkowitz.
Today’s porcelain veneers are stronger, thinner, whiter and more realistic looking than ever. Only the smallest portion of your natural tooth needs to be reduced before wafer-thin porcelain veneers are placed over the teeth. Once veneers are bonded to the tooth, they can be sculpted, hardened and polished for a custom tailored smile.
Two visits are usually required to complete the process of placing dental veneers. Little or no anesthesia is necessary during the procedure. The teeth are lightly buffed and shaped to allow for the thickness of the veneer. An impression of the teeth is taken and you will choose the color that suits you.
On the second visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to assure a durable bond. Bonding cement is placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond. Your new veneers will never wear down and are completely resistant to stains. Dr. Gershkowitz will advise you of the care instructions for your veneers. The procedure is irreversible, but with proper attention and good dental care, porcelain veneers can last for many years.
