Porcelain Veneers and Laminates
Dr. Parviz Edalat is one of the pioneers of cosmetic dentistry in New York City, and as such he offers smile evaluations during which he addresses each patient’s profile in a relaxed and friendly environment.
If porcelain laminates are the appropriate treatment, he will then explain the procedure as well as answer any questions with the aid of diagnostic models often custom-made for each patient. Porcelain veneers, as they are sometimes referred to are wafer-thin, custom made porcelain restorations that are bonded directly to the surface of prepared teeth. They are the ideal option for closing gaps, disguising discolored teeth, and often giving a total smile makeover in cases where there are crooked, broken teeth.. Veneers are a viable and more conservative alternative to traditional crowns where the entire tooth structure needs to be shaved down in order to place the restoration. Laminates are both more aesthetically pleasing in translucency and natural hue and not prone to chipping or discoloring as with bonding materials.
These porcelain shells are what one often sees on top models and actors when they have undergone smile makeovers. To get such natural results, one needs the skills and craftsmanship of both a highly skilled cosmetic dentist as well a master ceramist. This is exactly what we strive to achieve for every patient who trusts us with their smile!
