Porcelain Veneers – Cortlandt, NY

Transform Your Smile & Self-Confidence All At Once

Young woman with picture-perfect smile A beautiful smile is more than an outward appearance. In fact, the boost of inner confidence and self-assurance that’s gained from knowing your teeth are perfect is far more valuable. However, patients with multiple issues might think they require several expensive procedures to correct the problem, which could cause them to shy away from talking with Cortlandt dentist Dr. Taxin about cosmetic dentistry procedures for fear that it will take too much time or be too expensive for them to achieve their smile goals.

How Porcelain Veneers Can Change Your Appearance

However, porcelain veneers are now a widely accessible and very affordable cosmetic option, and they can cover a range of dental blemishes with a single procedure. If you’re suffering from misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, porcelain veneers can give you the gorgeous smile that you desire. Veneers look completely natural and are crafted from the most advanced dental ceramic available. For many people, this means that a beautiful, straight smile can be achieved without the necessity of braces.

Your first meeting with Dr. Taxin is an opportunity for him to assess your overall oral health and for you to voice your desires for your new smile. Dr. Taxin will want to treat tooth decay or gum disease before he begins the process of porcelain veneers. While the focus of his design for your dental veneers will be to create a smile that complements your mouth, face, and complexion, he’ll be happy to consider the smile details you have in mind too. You may even want to show us photographs of people who have smile characteristics that you appreciate.

Porcelain Veneers Process

The actual process of receiving porcelain veneers requires two appointments with Dr. Taxin. Using a conservative technique, Dr. Taxin starts by gently reshaping the teeth by removing a small amount of tooth enamel. This is necessary to ensure the smooth yet secure application of the veneers to your teeth. With some enamel removed, your veneers will lay flush in your mouth and not protrude.

Once this step is completed, Dr. Taxin generates measurements for your porcelain veneers, which will be used to cover your front teeth. At this visit, you’ll be given temporary veneers that you’ll wear while your permanent veneers are made. Wearing these temporaries will protect your prepared teeth and give you the chance to adjust to the feeling of having veneers in your mouth.

The measurements and other information are sent to our dental lab so that a skilled ceramist can handcraft your custom veneers. About two weeks after the first appointment, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Taxin will adhesively bond each one of your veneers into place. These natural looking restorations will give you a perfect smile!
