Even a healthy smile can use a little maintenance and cosmetic improvement from time to time. From chips and cracks from everyday wear and tear to stains and discolorations from food and drinks or a smoking habit, many people admit to feeling self-conscious or dissatisfied with how their teeth look when they smile. Dental veneers are a great option to correct minor and moderate cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Eugene Porcelli, a cosmetic dentist in Garden City, NY, offers a number of general and cosmetic dentistry services to improve the appearance of your smile and your oral health.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Garden City, NY
If you've ever admired your favorite celebrity's "perfect" teeth, or even those of a colleague or friend, chances are that they have achieved their beautiful smile with a little help from veneers. Veneers can be used to change the size, shape, and color of damaged teeth. They can also be used to close small gaps (spacing or alignment issues caused by a bite problem may require orthodontic treatment). Veneers are also used to seal and strengthen a tooth after treatment with root canal therapy.
How They Work
Veneers are custom designed using a thin, translucent layer of porcelain bonded to the front surface of a damaged tooth and molded into the desired size or shape. In order to get a smooth and natural looking fit, the dentist may have to remove a portion of the enamel layer from the tooth to make room for the veneer. If you have been looking for a minimally invasive and affordable way to makeover your smile, veneers are a great option. With good oral hygiene and regular dental care, veneers can last from five to ten years, often much longer.
