There is so much that dental veneers can do to resurrect your smile and make it more appealing.
Have you been considering cosmetic dentistry? Want to improve the shape of your smile but not sure exactly how? Do you need to repair or improve a few teeth to get the ideal look you want? Then our Briarcliff Manor, NY, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Teitelbaum, could offer you the beautiful results you desire through porcelain veneers.
If you were to take a look at porcelain veneers, at first glance you may think they look no different than false fingernails. Of course, while veneers do offer more protection for the tooth just as a fake fingernail can for a nail, a veneer can also drastically improve a tooth’s appearance when it is bonded to it.
These thin, translucent shells are uniquely crafted to fit only your teeth. As you will be able to see, veneers actually cover the entire front portion of the teeth and even reflect light in the same way that a real tooth can, so people won’t even know whether your smile is yours or the help of porcelain veneers.
What can dental veneers do for you? Well, they can easily cover:
- Stains and discolorations
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen or malformed teeth
- Uneven or worn teeth
You name it; veneers can probably cover it! It’s that simple. Whether you want to lengthen a tooth that has been worn down by teeth grinding or you want to cover that awkward gap between your front teeth, getting veneers can hide all this and so much more.
Getting veneers is surprisingly easy. Once you come in to see our Briarcliff Manor dentist to find out if your teeth and smile goals are a perfect fit for veneers, the next step is to prep your teeth for your new restoration.
Tooth preparation for this cosmetic treatment is fairly straightforward and minimally invasive. In fact, it can often be done without even needing a local anesthetic. During this preparation, we will remove about 0.5mm of enamel from the front of your teeth. For traditional veneers this is a must, otherwise, there will be no room to place your veneers and your smile will be bulky and unnatural.
Once enamel has been removed, we will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are what the dental lab will use to design and specially crafted your very own veneers.
When your veneers are made, the very last step is to make sure that they offer an ideal fit before bonding them to the front of your teeth with special tooth-colored dental resin.
