Dental Veneers: Your New Smile Is Closer Than You Think
Fixing small cosmetic issues with your smile has never been easier. Smile Design Dental can offer you a noninvasive solution that will mask many small issues and give you the look of brand-new teeth. Let trusted Newburgh, NY dentist Dr. Petrosino, a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantology, use the wonder of dental veneers to give you the kind of smile you have always wanted.
What Are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer is a thin layer of material that is bonded to the front side of your tooth to cover minor cosmetic problems. Think of veneers like fingernails for your teeth. These are a less invasive way of fixing minor issues that do not threaten the structural integrity of your tooth. Top Newburgh, NY dentist, Dr. Petrosino, at Smile Design Dental uses porcelain as the base material for our veneer. This gives the veneers a natural look and allows us to easily match the shade to that of the surrounding teeth. Often, we recommend a whitening treatment before your veneer is placed. This is because a veneer can never become whiter, so if you want to whiten your teeth in the future and avoid having a veneer that is darker than your surrounding teeth, we suggest whitening beforehand for the best results possible.
What Problems Can Veneers Help Fix?
There are several problems that veneers are a perfect fix for. Some of those conditions are:
Deep Dental Stains – Although we recommend whitening before you get your veneers, there are some stains that even our powerful KöR Whitening is not entirely effective for. Those deep stains are often caused by an illness or the medication required to treat an illness. These stains come from the inside of the tooth out and can really damage your smile. Dental veneers can effectively cover these stains and give you the whiter smile that teeth whitening could not.
Chips – Small chips in your tooth are easily fixed with a dental veneer. Tooth bonding is another option but is less durable. Veneers are able to withstand much more biting force than tooth bonding and will last far longer as well.
Small Cracks – Large cracks are more suited for a crown or other type of restoration. Small cracks, however, are perfect candidates for dental veneers. The veneer can cover the crack and provide structural support to prevent further damage to the already cracked tooth.
Gaps – It used to be that the only thing you could do to close a gap in your teeth was to use orthodontics. However, this shifts your whole smile. Now, dental veneers can close small gaps without ever bothering the other teeth in your mouth. Why move all of your teeth if the problem is only with one or two of them?
