4 Conditions That Veneers Correct

4 Conditions That Veneers Correct

Even if you’ve been reluctant to show your smile for years because your teeth aren’t picture-perfect, all hope isn’t lost.

Even if you’ve considered getting veneers but thought they looked too fake, all hope isn’t lost.

Even if you think veneers might work, but your problems are too severe, all hope isn’t lost.

At Smile Design Manhattan in Midtown West, we specialize in restoring hope by bringing your smile back to life. And veneers are one of our top tools. These thin porcelain shells are designed to change the shape and color of your teeth to give you the smile you’ve always imagined.

Our veneers are handcrafted by a master of the trade, so you can rest assured your teeth don’t look unnatural, like they just rolled off an assembly line. Quite the opposite, in fact. If you don’t tell anyone, no one is likely to know you’ve had veneers put in place.

Here are four conditions that we can usually correct with veneers:

Stained or discolored teeth

Bleaching and teeth whitening can only go so far. Sometimes, stains or discolorations from certain foods, liquids, or medicines (such as tetracycline) just won’t fade no matter what you try. Porcelain veneers can cover these discolorations and return your teeth to a brilliant white. 

Chipped or cracked teeth

Over the years, life takes its toll on your teeth. It’s easy for chips and cracks to form and for the hard outer layer of enamel to wear away, leaving your teeth looking vulnerable, old, and jagged. Veneers cover all that wear-and-tear to give you a brand-new look.

Gapped teeth

If you have any gaps or openings between your teeth, veneers can cover those gaps by providing a uniform size and appearance. They look so natural, you may have a hard time remembering exactly where the gaps were.

Misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth

If your teeth are naturally uneven, slightly crooked, or irregular in shape and size, veneers can smooth out all those differences by making your teeth look straight and even. It may surprise you just how much difference that makes in your smile.

Once we know which issue we’re solving with veneers, we take X-rays of your teeth so we’re working with the most accurate information. Then our cosmetic dental specialists work with you to choose the color shade that best matches your natural teeth from among 30 options.

We make a mold of your teeth and send it to our master ceramist, who handcrafts your specific shells. After we receive the veneers, we bond them to your teeth and shape them as needed for comfort and aesthetics before we send you into the world with your dazzling new smile.

If you’re ready to start the veneer process, call the Smile Design Manhattan office in New York City or book your appointment online. Remember, all hope isn’t lost — veneers just might be your answer!
