So What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells made from porcelain. These shells are placed on the front surfaces of one tooth or several teeth to cover up various cosmetic flaws. Veneers are custom-designed to blend in seamlessly with your smile and look virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

CEREC Veneers Might Be Right for You

The dentists at Aesthetic Oral Arts offer both traditional and same-day dental veneers. While we might recommend lab-made porcelain veneers in some cases, most patients can experience the incredible convenience of in-house CEREC restorations. Our New Hartford, NY, practice is equipped with an advanced milling machine that carves your custom veneers from a solid block of porcelain in under an hour. This cutting-edge system works using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) technology which can begin on veneer production immediately after taking your digital impressions. Same-day treatment is a perfect solution for patients with a big event just a few days away, giving you results in a fraction of the time as traditional dentistry. 

Are You a Candidate?

During your free consultation at our New Hartford office, our dentists will examine your teeth and determine whether you are a good candidate for treatment. There are a few main factors that we take into consideration...

Tooth Structure

In order for the veneer to lay flush with surrounding teeth, we need to remove a small layer of surface enamel. If you do not have sufficient enamel or have extensive wear and structural damage, we may recommend a crown that caps the entire tooth instead. 

Oral Health

Before they can receive any type of cosmetic treatment, patients need to have good oral health and a commitment to good dental hygiene. We can provide any necessary restorative dentistry procedures to correct decay and periodontal disease prior to placing veneers. 

Long-Term Goals 

It is important to understand that veneers will permanently change your teeth, so you must be prepared to replace them in the future. Talk to our dentists about the aspects of your teeth you are unhappy with. We might recommend an alternative, such as dental bonding.

Your Treatment Timeline

Our state-of-the-art technology allows us to design and produce custom veneers in a single appointment.

Consultation

During your consultation, we will discuss treatment options and decide which teeth you would like to enhance. We can provide you with an estimate and discuss payment options at this time.

Tooth Prep

The first step before veneer placement is to prepare the teeth you wish to treat. The dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front surface (usually less than a millimeter) to make room for the veneers. If you are particularly nervous or sensitive, we can provide sedation dentistry to help you feel more comfortable during the procedure.

Impressions

Next, we will take digital impressions of your smile. If you choose same-day restorations, the impressions are immediately sent to our in-office CEREC machine for production. If you choose lab-made porcelain veneers, the designs are sent to our local partner lab and will be ready in about two weeks. For traditional veneers, we can also create a wax-up model, allowing you to visualize the look of your final results. 

Placement

When the veneers are ready, your dentist will carefully examine their fit and appearance against your teeth. Once you are both satisfied, we will secure the veneers to your teeth using a specially formulated bonding agent. Your veneers may feel slightly bulky at first, but most patients get used to the feeling within a few short days. 

What Do Veneers Cost?

While the cost of treatment will be different for each patient depending on their unique needs, our dental veneers typically cost $1,260 per tooth. As with other types of cosmetic dentistry, veneers are not covered by insurance. Our New Hartford practice has flexible financing options to break up the cost of your care and make it a comfortable fit for your budget.

Looking to Correct Multiple Dental Issues?

Consider a Smile Makeover

While porcelain veneers can address a wide range of problems, you may need additional work to get your smile where you want it to be. Rather than undergo several procedures separately, consider a smile makeover. A smile makeover is a custom treatment plan that combines multiple techniques into one streamlined procedure. It begins with a consultation at our New Hartford, NY, office to discuss your dental concerns and overall goals. We will then design a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. 

Caring For Your Porcelain Veneers

For the most part, you should care for your veneers in the same way you care for your natural teeth. By practicing good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist twice a year for a check-up, your veneers could last more than a decade.  We also recommend taking these simple steps:

Watch What You Chew

Porcelain veneers are durable enough to withstand normal biting and chewing functions. However, just like your natural teeth, they can crack when placed under excessive pressure. It is best to avoid biting down on anything especially hard or sticky, like toffee or ice cubes. 

Prevent Stains 

Porcelain veneers are made to match the color of your teeth at the time they are placed.  While your veneers will resist stains from coffee, red wine, and other highly pigmented substances, your tooth enamel will not. Avoid stain-causing foods and drinks when possible, and schedule occasional teeth whitening treatments as needed. 

Floss With Care

Remember, a veneer doesn't prevent decay of the underlying tooth. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth carefully each day. When flossing around your veneer-treated teeth, pull the string from front to back rather than up and down. A vertical motion could cause the floss to snag on the edge of your veneers, pulling them loose.

They've been great with all my concerns. They've thoroughly explained everything to me and sent me home with treatment plans so I know what to expect. All of the staff are professional, polite, and very nice. They really go above and beyond. I'm very thankful to have found them considering several dentist I've been to before seemed like they didn't care about my concerns. Keep up the great work!
