Partial and Full Veneers in New York, NY
There are two types of dental veneers: Partial and full. Partial veneers are used to rectify minor defects, while full veneers are used to correct more extensive flaws. Dr. Graffeo may cover the defective area with a partial veneer or use full veneers to mask the entire visible part of the tooth.
Other factors that need to be considered include:
- The age of the patient
- Alignment and positioning of the teeth
- Occlusion problems, if any
- General oral health
- Existing decay or cavities in the tooth
The time and cost of the treatment will depend on the number of veneers and the location of the teeth. While dental veneers are ideal for correcting superficial imperfections, the patient may need orthodontic treatment, braces, or crowns to correct more extensive problems.
Composite Resin and Porcelain Veneers Procedure
We can place composite resin veneers during a single dental appointment. The dentist will choose a shade of putty that mimics your natural tooth color. We will then apply the resin to the tooth, mold it, and re-shape it. Our skilled dentist will harden and polish the composite resin for the final finish.
Porcelain veneers are more robust, durable, and longer-lasting than composite resin. Dr. Graffeo will remove a minimal amount of tooth structure from the sides and front of the tooth. We will then send the mold to an off-site dental lab to get the final veneers. During the second appointment at Glen J. Graffeo DDS, we will cement the porcelain veneer carefully onto your tooth.
Dental veneers near you are ideal for rectifying front teeth that experience low chewing forces. Our highly trained dentist in New York, NY will help determine the right type of veneers for your needs.
