Would you like to improve how your teeth look? Maybe you’re not happy with the size, shape, or color of them. Or you could have teeth that are broken, chipped, crooked or gaps between them that are too wide. Our cosmetic dentist in Bay Ridge would like to help you to be more satisfied with your smile. Veneers are an ideal way to accomplish that goal. They’re thin shells that are placed over the fronts of your teeth, providing you with an enhanced appearance and letting you overcome the cosmetic challenges that your teeth have been causing you.
Veneers are made from tooth-colored material so that they have a look that is very similar to the ones your teeth naturally have. Porcelain is a popular choice for veneers because it is a strong and durable material and in addition, it is resistant to stains. This is a very important feature if you engage in any habits that are known to cause tooth discoloration. Among these are tobacco use, either through smoking or smokeless varieties; drinking beverages like tea, coffee, or red wine; and consuming foods that include curry, soy sauce, and berries. Even if you continue to use the listed products, porcelain will maintain its color for much longer than many other types of restoration material will. Our cosmetic dentist in Bay Ridge will discuss whether porcelain is the right option for you based on your unique situation.
How do you get veneers? Essentially, you will usually need three visits to complete the work. It all starts with an exam and consultation to find out if you are a good candidate for them. You can ask any questions that you have and our cosmetic dentist in Bay Ridge will go over the finer points of the process. Your second and third sessions will allow us to apply, fit, and finally bond your new veneers. The result will be a brand new smile for you, free of the issues and concerns that may have caused you to feel self-conscious in the past. Don’t live with your teeth looking any less perfect that you want them to any longer. Call us right now and let’s get you on your way.
