If you’re dissatisfied with how your teeth look, our Brooklyn cosmetic dentist can help with dental veneers. Made from durable and attractive porcelain, veneers can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns. They’re basically tiny shells that are placed and bonded over the fronts of your teeth, giving you an enhanced appearance and eliminated some of the deficiencies in how your natural teeth look.
Dental veneers work if you have concerns about the size, shape, or color of your teeth. They’re also a wonderful solution for broken, chipped, or crooked teeth. Or if you have gaps between them that are too wide. Any of these issues can be addressed by our Brooklyn cosmetic dentist with porcelain veneers. If you have more than one of the listed concerns, veneers provide an even greater benefit, preventing the need for multiple types of treatments. Porcelain is a favored material because it is strong, has a color very much like your natural teeth, and is also resistant to staining. So if your teeth have become discolored from habits such as smoking; eating foods like curry, soy sauce and berries; or drinks including tea, coffee, and red wine; not only will veneers give you a brighter and whiter smile, but they will stay that way a lot longer even if you continue to do the things that made them that way to begin with.
Two sessions are usually needed to compete the work on your dental veneers. Little or no anesthesia should be required. It’s not an uncomfortable process. Your first appointment with our Brooklyn cosmetic dentist will include the light buffing and shaping of your teeth. This is to accommodate the width of the veneers themselves. An impression will be taken and you and your dentist will decide upon a color that is most appropriate. Your second visit will involve having your teeth specially cleansed so that your veneers will bond as best they can. Bonding cement secures them and a special light is used to harden the cement. That’s all there is to it. With proper care, you should expect to get many years of use out of your dental veneers along with a smile that is new and improved.
