There are many options available today thanks to the advancements made in cosmetic dentistry that can help revive patient smiles. But how do you know which treatment is best suited to your individual needs when there are so many options to choose from? Today I would like to discuss the merits of one option offered at our Bronx cosmetic dental office - dental veneers.
Dental veneers are comprised of thin layers of porcelain that are applied to natural teeth. Porcelain veneers are perfect for dental restorations because porcelain mimics natural enamel; it looks natural and is stain resistant as well. Veneers are not removable, and therefore are considered to be a permanent cosmetic treatment.
Veneers can treat many common cosmetic problems, including:
Gaps in a smile
Poorly proportioned teeth or teeth that are too short
Dull or discolored dental enamel
Dental veneers only require two or three dental appointment, making them a great option for those seeking a timely treatment. Porcelain can be shaped and shaded to blend with your natural teeth, and veneers can be placed for one tooth, multiple teeth, or a full smile. So whatever your needs are, veneers offer a wide variety of options to work with to perfect your smile.
Dental veneers are very popular with patients, due in large part to the fact that they can correct several cosmetic problems in just one treatment. For example, you can achieve a straight and luminous smile with veneers versus having to endure a lengthy braces treatment followed by whitening procedures.
Our Bronx cosmetic dentists understand that it can be difficult to determine the best cosmetic dental treatment for your specific situation. If you would like help discerning your best options, or if have questions you would like answered about veneers or cosmetic dentistry in general, please contact our office to get the discussion started!
