It’s doesn’t take much to make a person unhappy with his or her smile. Even minor smile flaws can leave you less confident and less willing to smile. Now, you can cover those smile flaws and have the smile you’ve always wanted with dental veneers from Dr. Geraldine Petrosino at Smile Design Dental in Newburgh, NY!

How Dental Veneers Work

Dental veneers are thin pieces of material that are bonded to the fronts of visible teeth to conceal small smile flaws. The procedure is comfortable, fairly quick, and non-invasive.

There are a variety of materials that dental veneers can be made from. The traditional option is porcelain which is very durable and reflects light very naturally. Another advantage of porcelain is that it can be created to match the shade of white of your teeth. That means that you can cover one tooth or several to conceal flaws. Or, you can choose to have a completely new smile!

At Smile Design Dental in Newburgh, NY, Dr. Geraldine Petrosino exclusively offers porcelain veneers for people who want to perfect their smiles. Veneers can conceal:

  • Chips, cracks, and pits
  • Irregular teeth
  • Twisted or crooked teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Deep stains or discolorations that don’t respond to teeth whitening

One thing to keep in mind that the whiteness of veneers can’t be increased once they’re in place. Dr. Petrosino may suggest a professional smile whitening treatment prior to deciding on your veneers so your teeth can always look their best.

The Veneer Process

When you schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Petrosino, she’ll perform an examination and discuss your smile goals in depth with you. Almost everyone can receive dental veneers; with that said, some problems are better dealt with using other techniques such a dental crown for a deeply cracked tooth.

Once you and Dr. Petrosino have agreed on your final smile design, she’ll prepare your teeth to receive dental veneers. As thin as veneers are, they still add some thickness to the teeth. To ensure that your veneers don’t appear “bubbly,”, Dr. Petrosino will make sure that the final look of all your visible teeth remains the same.

Your dental veneers are created specifically for you by a trusted dental laboratory. At your next appointment, Dr. Petrosino will ensure that they fit perfectly and look great once they’ve been received by our Newburgh, NY office.

Veneers Are A Very Worthwhile Investment

Research shows that people who smile broadly and often are seen are being more likeable and trustworthy. That’s an advantage in your professional life and your social life. No one can guarantee that you’ll get that big promotion or find the love of your life, but a great smile can only help!

With care, your new veneers can look great for 15 years or more. If you’re looking for a comprehensive, non-invasive smile solution, dental veneers are likely your best choice.
