Porcelain Veneer Application Process
Applying porcelain veneers typically takes two visits. Because we are a multidisciplinary dental practice, our nationally acclaimed master veneer technician and our cosmetic dentist work together to achieve incredible results. Dr. Benjamin Ifraimov is our director of cosmetic dentistry. His twenty years of experience, his artistry, and his compassion has propelled him into the upper echelons of cosmetic dentists in New York City.
Dr. Ifraimov works in concert with Dr. Han ( a prosthodontist, master lab technician) to produce the most beautiful porcelain veneers. The veneers are made at 172 NYC Dental, right here in our office. This allows for very fast production of the veneers; sometimes on the same day! It also allows for a very intimate relationship between the cosmetic team and you. Everyone involved in creating your new smile sees you up close and personal. You are not an inanimate model being sent to a commercial lab; you are a unique individual having a custom smile created exactly for you. In an effort to treat you as a whole person and not only as a veneer case; any work that exceeds $5,000, 172 NYC Dental will provide complimentary tooth whitening.
The veneers we use are extremely thin at 1.5 millimeters thick. However, they still take up space on the surface of your tooth. That is why, during your first visit, our cosmetic dentist will remove a small amount of natural tooth structure to make room for the veneer. This ensures a perfect fit that does not overlap with your teeth on either side.
We then take a digital 3D impression of each tooth and send them to our lab. There, we custom fabricate veneers based on your smile. We will place temporary veneers on your teeth to protect them while your permanent veneers are being made.
Your second visit will consist of adhering permanent veneers to the surface of your teeth. We use a powerful bonding agent to ensure long-lasting results. Each porcelain veneer is then gently buffed so that they look and feel completely natural. At the completion of your case we will construct official Invisalign Vivera Retainers for you. These ultra-thin, comfortable retainers will hold your beautiful smile in place while protecting you from grinding while you sleep.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost at 172 NYC Dental?
Porcelain veneers have the amazing ability to fix several cosmetic dental concerns in a relatively short period. However, this is only achieved when you have an expert team of dental professionals on your side. While the cost varies based on your insurance provider or the number of veneers needed, we strive to make this option as affordable as possible.
One way we do this is by providing a variety of different specialties under one roof. That means you will experience significant savings due to the reduced number of consultations and preliminary visits. We also offer convenient interest-free financing if needed. Our office paradigm is to do exquisite work at very reasonable fees. If your work has medical/dental implications (pathology) there is a good chance that your PPO insurance will cover part of the cost. If the work is deemed cosmetic or elective the insurance company will not cover the claim. Our team of treatment coordinators works very hard to maximize insurance coverage and minimize your out of pocket expenses. We want our patients to experience exquisite dental work without invasion into their other financial responsibilities. Our preliminary consultations are complimentary. As we go to the next level of radiographs, models, Panorex fees will be incurred. Making these cases affordable is the first step in making you smile.
