If you desire a sparkling, youthful smile, we have a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments that may meet your needs. However, porcelain veneers from our Rockville Centre, NY, office can provide some of the most comprehensive results. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that can conceal blemishes by attaching to the front of your teeth. Veneers are an especially effective way to address stains, chips, and minor orthodontic problems. Dr. Joseph Fusco works with trusted partner labs to provide high-quality porcelain veneers. He collaborates with a local institution and with a top-of-the-line facility in Turin, Italy. Our Italian lab offers the ultimate in aesthetics, using advanced materials to create strong, customized veneers.
Porcelain veneers offer an optimal solution for concealing dental blemishes.
Are You Eligible for Porcelain Veneers?
Dr. Fusco may recommend porcelain veneers to achieve a number of effects. These restorations can correct a broad spectrum of concerns, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Discoloration (particularly if you have dark intrinsic stains)
- Minor cracks
- Gaps in your smile
- Crooked, tipped, or rotated teeth
- Proportionately small teeth
- Dental erosion that has not weakened the tooth structure
To qualify for veneers, you should have good oral health. If you have gum disease or decay, you may not be a candidate for treatment; however, your eligibility for veneers may be renewed after certain restorative procedures have eradicated these problems. Dental erosion and existing fillings may also impact your ability to receive veneers. If you have sustained this type of damage, your teeth may be too weak to withstand the preparatory process.
How We Design and Place Porcelain Veneers
To create room for your veneers, Dr. Fusco may need to remove some of your dental enamel. He uses conservative biomimetic techniques when placing any type of dental restoration. Utilizing this approach, he will remove the smallest amount of tissue possible. In this way, he can prevent an overall weakening of your tooth structure, and he can ensure longer-lasting results. Tooth preparation generally involves very little discomfort, and local anesthesia is rarely required.
Veneers are a popular treatment option that involve some minor prep work but ultimately have stunning and dramatic results.
Once your teeth have been prepared, Dr. Fusco will take impressions and send them to one of two partner labs with whom we collaborate. If you want the quickest turnaround possible, he will work with a local facility. However, whenever possible, we like to collaborate with an Italian lab. Their artisanal ceramist has an extremely precise approach. He handcrafts veneers using state-of-the-art materials, such as IPS e.max®, zirconia, and feldspathic porcelain. Your veneers will be created using photos of your smile that will be taken at your initial consultation. With this detail-oriented approach, your veneers will precisely match the color, shape, and sparkle of your teeth.
Once your veneers are finished, Dr. Fusco will check the fit and aesthetics. If no adjustments are needed, he will attach them securely to your teeth, using composite resin with a natural color that blends seamlessly with your smile.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are a popular treatment option that involve some minor prep work but ultimately have stunning and dramatic results. They can improve various concerns at once, meaning your smile could look years younger. Your self-confidence could significantly improve when your radiant smile is the focal point of your entire appearance. When you maintain good oral care and schedule regular dental visits, they could last a decade or longer.
