Dr. Al Gulum provides great cosmetic dentistry options for his patients and is passionate about seeing you feel confident in your smile again. One of these cosmetic options is porcelain veneers. This may be the answer you’ve been looking for if you suffer from any of these symptoms:
Porcelain veneers are a special set of veneers that are made of the best available quality and material and provide a natural-looking tooth with optimized functionality. The veneer itself is a thin device, placed over your natural teeth to reveal a brighter, even smile that you may not have had otherwise.
To begin, it is important to note that veneers are typically completed in two visits to our Fresh Meadows, NY, office. During the first appointment, Dr. Al Gulum will begin by thoroughly cleaning your existing teeth and then preparing the surface of the tooth site by removing only a thin layer of enamel. Once prepared, an impression is made of the area to accurately make a customized veneer that will be made and sent to the office in a set of weeks. In the meantime, Dr. Al Gulum will fit your mouth with a temporary veneer in order to not interfere with your chewing or speaking abilities.
By the second appointment, your new veneer is to be bonded to the tooth, and being that it is porcelain, it will match perfectly and look natural with the rest of your existing teeth.
If you’re interested in dental veneers but are unsure if they are the right procedure for you, give our office a call, and we would love to answer your questions or set up a consultation.
