Veneers represent a simple, safe, and very effective way for our Greenlawn NY dentist to give your smile a makeover. If you are not happy with what you see when you look at your teeth in a mirror; or you find that you are feeling self-conscious just to open your mouth in front of people, don’t just live with it. You will be surprised just how easy it is to make the changes you want.
Unlike crowns, which are placed on top of your teeth, veneers are thin shells that are placed over the fronts of your teeth. Typically they are made from porcelain, which is a fine, tooth-colored material that looks very much like that of your natural teeth. When you have several or even all of your teeth that are presenting cosmetic challenges, even different ones, our Greenlawn NY dentist will recommend veneers as the way to address the problems at hand. Just some of the reasons you may want to have this done are teeth that are chipped, cracked, crooked or discolored. Veneers are also useful for covering gaps between teeth that are too wide, or for teeth that are poorly-sized or misshapen. Virtually any concern relating to size, shape, or color can be cause to seek our our Greenlawn NY dentist for veneers. You will start by coming in for an exam to ensure that you are a good candidate for them. Impressions are taken and sent to the dental lab where your veneers will be made to precision. Dr. Curtiss will fit them to you, make any needed adjustments, and then bond them to your teeth. The result is a smile that looks ideal and brand new.
When compared to treating each tooth and each issue separately, veneers make for a very effective way to improve how your teeth look. Your self-confidence will soar and you will start looking forward to showing off your smile. Call our office to schedule an appointment.
