Customized Porcelain Veneers Can Transform Your Smile
Veneers can conceal stains, cracks, and chips. They can also refine the shape of your teeth, close gaps in your smile, and cover minor misalignment. Dr. Michael Molnar provides a wide range of cosmetic services, including porcelain veneers, at his Tarrytown, NY, office. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain, specially designed to fit your smile, and can also be shaded to match the rest of your teeth. As a former ceramist, Dr. Molnar has an artistic eye, and he will ensure that your veneers have an incredibly lifelike appearance.
Are You a Candidate?
If you struggle from a range of cosmetic blemishes including cracks, chips, stains, gaps, and minor misalignment, you may benefit from porcelain veneers. If you have severe discoloration that will not benefit from teeth whitening, veneers may be the right option for you. To receive veneers, you must have sufficient dental tissue and be in good oral health. If you currently have cavities or gum disease, you will need appropriate care before undergoing cosmetic procedures.
If you do not qualify for porcelain veneers, or if you are looking for a more economical procedure, Dr. Molnar may suggest composite bonded veneers. These restorations are made from tooth-colored composite resin that is tinted to match your teeth. The process can be a much more affordable option for patients on a budget. However, the procedure will not provide as significant or long-lasting results as porcelain veneers.
Before placing veneers, Dr. Molnar will remove a thin layer of enamel using advanced dental lasers. By removing tissue, he can make room for the porcelain and create a more secure bonding surface. Then he will take impressions of your teeth, which he will send to our dental lab. Before becoming a dentist, Dr. Molnar worked as a ceramist. With this background, he is committed to providing you with the most realistic results possible. He will work with our lab to ensure that your veneers fit correctly, match the color of your teeth, and have a natural sheen.
With this treatment, Dr. Molnar can address various problems at once for a complete smile transformation.
After the veneers come back to our office, Dr. Molnar will check their fit. Then he may treat your teeth with a mild chemical solution, which will lightly etch your dental tissue. The microscopic grooves will increase the surface area so that your veneers can bond more securely to your teeth. Finally, Dr. Molnar will attach the porcelain. In some cases, he may also perform cosmetic gum contouring to provide a better framework for your enhanced smile.
Benefits of Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a comprehensive cosmetic option. With this treatment, Dr. Molnar can address multiple cosmetic issues at once for a complete smile transformation. Despite the dramatic results, veneers placement does not involve significant alteration of your teeth. Though you may experience some slight sensitivity, the treatment typically involves minimal discomfort. Most noticeably, veneers are incredibly realistic. Our lab uses top-quality porcelain. They will find a color that is virtually identical to your smile, and the veneers will provide a beautifully lifelike shine.
