There are many reasons why you may want to restore or enhance the appearance of your teeth. Some people have various imperfections that may make them feel insecure or generally unhappy about the way that their smile looks. Other people may have suffered from damage to their teeth in the past that has since altered the way that their smile appears to others. No matter why you feel comfortable with the way that your teeth look, it may help to know that there are options available to you when it comes to improving their overall appearance. Here T our dental office in Bay Ridge, Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, we may be able to provide you with porcelain dental veneers or even dental bonding depending on the nature of your specific cosmetic issues.
If you are looking for a cosmetic option that will give you an overall smile makeover, then you may be more interested in porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are essentially shells that are made from a tooth colored porcelain material. The porcelain is shaped into shells that look like perfect teeth. These shells can be placed over your realties and will mask whatever imperfections you have. For the most part, veneers are best for people who have a variety of different dental imperfections, or for people who have imperfections that carry over sections of teeth. For instance, veneers are best used for people who are concerned about small gaps between teeth, slightly crooked teeth, stained or yellow teeth, misshapen teeth, small teeth, damaged teeth, or any of the above. Here at our dental office in Bay Ridge, our cosmetic dentist will create a set of customize dental veneers that will match your smile as well as your expectations. If you happen to be interested in only improving the appearance of a few teeth, then you may be better suited for dental bonding, which we can also offer here at Fifth Avenue Dental Associates. Bonding addresses issues that are on a smaller scale, for instance dental bonding is often used to restore single teeth. In the bonding procedure, a tooth colored resin is applied to the tooth in order to cover up whatever imperfections there are, so you can see why this procedure is better for people with only a few teeth that need treatment.
