As the years roll by, chips, stains and other imperfections can have a negative effect on your smile. This can be especially troublesome if your chosen profession involves a lot of personal interaction. Fortunately, Dr. Iqbal Sayed is highly trained and experienced in a wide range of cosmetic smile enhancement treatments.
Dental veneers can be used to remedy teeth with chips and deep staining issues. The porcelain veneers are custom crafted in a dental lab out of a porcelain that will fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they are installed they will look exactly like natural tooth enamel.
As an added bonus the porcelain material is not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. Thus your smile will stay whiter for longer.
At the first appointment Dr. Iqbal Sayed will examine the teeth in your smile and take a few X-rays to assess the health of each tooth. It’s important to make sure that there is sufficient strong enamel to securely mount a veneer.
If one of the teeth in your smile has been compromised by past dental work or lacks sufficient enamel, Dr. Iqbal Sayed might recommend having it restored by a crown.
With the examination completed he will then take a detailed impression of all the teeth in your smile. This will be sent a dental lab to be used as a guide for crafting your custom porcelain dental veneers.
Dr. Iqbal Sayed will call you to schedule the second appointment when your veneers are ready.
If you want to improve your otherwise imperfect smile, you should call Dr. Iqbal Sayed’s office in Patchogue, New York at 631-758-6689 to ask about having dental veneers installed.
