The shape, size, and proportion of individual teeth can be as important to how your smile looks as a bright, white shine. If you live in or around Rochester and you're unhappy with the appearance of one or more of your teeth, cosmetic dentists Dr. Paul Sussman and Dr. Meredith Pogal can determine whether or not you're a candidate for porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers have a variety of different aesthetic applications. Please call Drs. Pogal and Sussman today at 585-227-4390 to schedule a free consultation to learn more. We are pleased to see patients throughout the Rochester area.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for Me?
Veneers are made from dental porcelain, a very sturdy ceramic material. The porcelain is handcrafted into a shell shape that conceals the front of the tooth, restoring both natural color and aesthetic attractiveness to your smile.
You might be a candidate for porcelain veneers if you're unhappy with your smile because of issues such as:
- Deep discoloration
- Cracked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Crookedness or uneven spacing
Along with these aesthetic issues, your teeth and gums should be in good health. Veneers require some removal of existing enamel, so your teeth need to have sufficient structure to support the ceramic shells.
Our dentists offer premium porcelain veneers including Empress, Aurum, and Feldspathic. However, many patients ask us about Lumineers®, a popular brand renowned for its ultra-thin design and limited preparation requirements. Dr. Sussman and Dr. Pogal can discuss which veneer will best fit your smile during a free consultation.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are one of the most sought-after cosmetic dentistry treatments among patients who visit our Rochester office. Reasons for this include:
- Each veneer is customized to meet your aesthetic needs
- Porcelain is shaded to match the natural color of your smile and sculpted to look just like your real teeth
- “Instant orthodontics” effect makes the smile look straighter without the aid of braces
- Veneers are resistant to staining
- Dental porcelain can last up to 10 years with proper oral hygiene
Though it is often an effective treatment option in itself, porcelain veneers are also a popular component in comprehensive smile makeovers. Our cosmetic dentists can help you determine how veneers might fit into your custom treatment plan.
