Porcelain Veneers and the Art of the Smile Makeover

The phrase “smile makeover” has become such a household phrase in recent years that it seems as though nearly every dental practice offers its own version. At Astoria Dental Group, however, the smile makeover has always represented an artful blend of treatments, each chosen and customized to reflect the unique dental needs and facial structure of the individual patient. These treatments might include teeth whiteningdental implants, gum lift, Invisalign®, and any number of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures.

If one treatment were to be singled out as an essential component of most smile makeovers, however, it might have to be porcelain veneers. This is because porcelain veneers are among the most versatile and transformative of all dental treatments, not to mention among the most natural looking. At Astoria Dental Group, we use materials of only the most surpassing quality to customize veneers to the most exacting specifications, ensuring that they perfectly complement the size, shape, color, and texture of surrounding natural teeth. Further contributing to the realistic appearance of veneers, porcelain, like natural tooth enamel, is translucent, meaning that it allows some light to pass through its surface rather than simply reflecting it.

Because porcelain veneers conceal a variety of aesthetic flaws, including chips, stains, gaps, and imperfections and shape, many of the most dramatic smile makeovers begin and end with porcelain veneers. Often, porcelain veneers are used to improve the appearance of the front teeth while porcelain crowns are used to cover damaged or aesthetically flawed side teeth. While in the care of Drs. Clifford Degel and Carmen Every-Degel, patients can trust that they are placing their smiles in capable hands, as the results of countless satisfied smile makeover patients demonstrate.
