What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Our New York, NY patients who get porcelain veneers access a number of benefits from their procedure, including:

  • Overall improved appearance of teeth, mouth, and smile
  • Minor removal of underlying enamel
  • Low maintenance option that requires no more than routine dental hygiene
  • A whiter, brighter smile that you can be confident in

What to Expect After Porcelain Veneer Placement

Once your dental veneers are bonded to your natural teeth, you may need to wait about 24 hours before eating hard, crunchy foods. In some cases, you may need to skip flossing for a day or so to allow the bonding agent to fully cure. After this, you'll be able to resume your normal routines. While your teeth may be sensitive for a few days, this should be relatively mild and should subside quickly. Porcelain dental veneers are designed to be durable and stain resistant, but it is still important to avoid overly hard, sticky, sugary, or staining foods and beverages. With proper care and dental hygiene, porcelain veneers can last for 10-15 years or longer.

What is veneer placement like?

When you've decided on your unique treatment plan in our New York, NY office, our team will take physical or digital impressions of your teeth. Your cosmetic veneers might be created in our office as you wait or your impressions can be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be made out of high-quality porcelain. When your porcelain veneers are prepared, a member of our team will carefully take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This creates room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts a long time. Once your veneers are secured, we may make small adjustments so your veneers fit comfortably. Schedule your appointment at Madison Avenue Dentists to get the smile you've longed for.

How do I care for my porcelain veneers daily?

Caring for porcelain veneers is simple and much like caring for your natural teeth. Regular brushing with a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste and gentle flossing is key to maintaining your veneers. Though veneers are stain-resistant, it's still recommended to avoid excessive consumption of staining substances like coffee and red wine. Regular check-ups at Madison Avenue Dentists will ensure your veneers remain in perfect condition. Follow any specific care instructions provided by our team, and your veneers can last for many years.

Can porcelain veneers be repaired if they are damaged?

While porcelain veneers are designed to be durable, they can sometimes be damaged or chipped. If this happens, it's important to contact Madison Avenue Dentists promptly. Depending on the extent of the damage, the veneer may be repaired or may need to be replaced. Our team in New York, NY will evaluate the situation and recommend the best course of action to restore the appearance and function of your veneer.

Are there any disadvantages to getting porcelain veneers?

Like most cosmetic procedures, there are both risks and benefits of porcelain veneers. Firstly, porcelain veneers are permanent. They bond to your teeth, making removal not a practical option. However, veneers can last up to 20 years with proper care. Porcelain veneers are still susceptible to breakage, chips, and even falling out if you are consuming hard foods or grinding your teeth. They are strong but not indestructible.

Do I still need to brush and floss my teeth after I get veneers?

100% Your teeth and gums are still real and require daily brushing and flossing. Porcelain veneers do not protect your teeth from getting cavities. Veneers are a great cosmetic option, but they don’t replace the need for proper dental care and regular dentist cleanings.

Are porcelain veneers reversible?

Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic procedure because a small amount of enamel is removed from the teeth to accommodate the veneers. This means that the process is typically irreversible. If you decide to remove the veneers, a new restoration or treatment may be needed to protect the underlying teeth. During your consultation at Madison Avenue Dentists, all aspects of the procedure, including its permanent nature, will be discussed to ensure it aligns with your goals and expectations. 

What are some alternatives to porcelain veneers?

Not everyone is a candidate for porcelain veneers, but that’s why there are several other options that your dentist can discuss with you to find the right fit. If your teeth are in otherwise good shape but are a little stained or yellow, teeth whitening is a great option. Dental bonding is recommended for minor cracks, chips, and mild breakage. Dental restoration will take care of dental crowns and bridges, and dental implants replace missing teeth. Every procedure requires you and your dentist to decide on the size, shape, color, and design of your beautiful new smile.
