One of the things that we offer here at Astoria Dental Group is Porcelain Veneers. Porcelain veneers have been around now for almost 30 years. The great thing about porcelain veneers is that it is pretty instantaneous. You are looking at a two-visit procedure, which can dramatically change your smile. There are a lot of different cases that you can use porcelain veneers in combination with other dentistry. Some patients might have gaps between their teeth. It is a perfect example for using porcelain veneers. A lot of patients that come to me for porcelain veneers is tetracycline staining. The procedure for placing porcelain veneers is basically a two-appointment procedure. The first procedure is where we make modifications to the teeth, taking an impression of those teeth we usually make a temporary for you so you walk out with some type of temporary facing on the teeth. You come back usually in two weeks or less and the porcelain veneers are actually bonded with cement onto your teeth and then they are polished and contoured to what you like and then basically you can change your whole smile.
