Achieve a Beautiful Smile in Just Two Visits
A smile can make or break your first impression and crooked, damaged, or stained teeth can often be a source of embarrassment. With your teeth playing such an important part in your daily life, it’s natural to want to ensure yours gives off the right message. At Ambis Dental, our cosmetic dentist in Ithaca, NY offers safe, quick, and beautiful porcelain veneers as a cosmetic dentistry solution to those who are unhappy with the current state of their smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable shells designed to elevate the beauty of your smile. Commonly called “instant orthodontics,” the porcelain veneer process can often be completed in as few as two visits to Ambis Dental. Each dental veneer is customized to match the shape and color of your teeth. This custom cosmetic treatment can completely transform your smile. They’re also an excellent alternative to dental crowns, as porcelain veneers provide a more aesthetic solution to certain dental conditions.
The Benefits of Veneers
Porcelain veneers come with a host of benefits, including:
- Non-invasive to neighboring healthy teeth
- Stain-Resistant: The material used to create dental veneers will never stain or discolor like natural teeth.
- Durability: Porcelain veneers are durable enough to withstand your daily habits so you can enjoy a beautiful, functional smile.
- Natural Appearance: Dr. Ambis will create your porcelain veneers to match the shape, size, and color of your surrounding teeth for a stunning appearance. No one will notice you have dental veneers!
- Short Procedure Time: Depending on the details of your treatment plan, you may be able to receive your customized porcelain veneers in just one visit to our cosmetic dentist in Ithaca, thanks to our on-site milling machine.
The Veneers Process
Receiving porcelain veneers is a simple, quick, and painless procedure. This process typically only takes two appointments to complete, and you’ll be able to return to normal daily functions as soon as you leave our Ithaca dental office.
When preparing for porcelain veneers, we want to make sure that your new smile is exactly what you expect. We begin with an in-depth consultation. During this visit, we use a handheld intraoral camera to take images of your bite and teeth. This allows us to create the perfect custom fit. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ambis, hand-sculpts models of your veneers and works with professional dental labs to construct the ideal restoration.
On the second visit, your porcelain veneers will be applied! We’ll secure the porcelain veneers to the teeth with a strong bonding agent. Veneers can last over 10 years with proper oral care and maintenance.
