What are Porcelain Veneers?
A quick way to enhance your smile and hide chipped, crooked, decayed, or stained teeth is with porcelain veneers at KFA Dental Excellence. Cosmetic veneers are light shells made out of porcelain, which are secured to the front of the teeth to improve the overall look of your smile. These customized and low-prep veneers can help improve the size, color, shape, or length of your teeth. These are similar to dental bonding and contouring but are stronger and should last much longer. Make an appointment in our Farmingdale, NY office to learn more information about porcelain veneers and decide if they're appropriate for your needs.

Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers may be a great option for you if you want to quickly hide stains and chips on your enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, or fix teeth that are abnormally spaced or shaped. At KFA Dental Excellence, your veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. During your consultation, one of our highly skilled dentists will listen to your goals and concerns so we can customize a treatment plan for you. One of our dentists will also likely assess the total health of your mouth to see if you qualify for veneers. You shouldn't have signs of gum problems, or habitually grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
How Will You Put on My Porcelain Veneers?
When you've decided you want porcelain veneers and one of our dentists have confirmed you qualify, we will take dental impressions. Your cosmetic veneers could be produced in our office as you wait, or your impressions can be sent to a dental lab where your custom veneers will be crafted out of high-quality porcelain. As soon as your veneers are ready, we will have you come in for your procedure. At this point, we will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth, allowing space for the porcelain veneers and enhancing the bond for a more natural result that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are bonded, one of our dentists will make small adjustments so your veneers fit well.
Is There a Recovery Period for Getting Porcelain Veneers?
Getting porcelain veneers does not typically require any sort of anesthesia so you should be able to get back to your daily tasks after your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks for a couple of days, but that should fade away. You will want to clean your veneers just like your natural teeth. To avoid chipping your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects. Continue to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at KFA Dental Excellence so we can keep monitoring the condition of your porcelain veneers. During these visits, we will let you know if you need to have adjustments or updates made to your porcelain veneers.
Have confidence with your best smile by getting customized porcelain veneers at KFA Dental Excellence in Farmingdale, NY. With a variety of treatment options to satisfy your needs, Drs. Kahn, Ferrari, and Aldieri can help you quickly improve the appearance of your smile with cosmetic veneers. To get more information, schedule a consultation with our friendly office today.
