Just the name brings specific images to mind: the iconic sign in the hills, the Walk of Fame, and movie stars on the red carpet flashing brilliant, perfect smiles.
Looking for a Hollywood smile yourself?
At Smile Design Manhattan in New York City’s Midtown West neighborhood, we can make your dreams come true with veneers. Here’s how we do it.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin ceramic or porcelain shells that cover the front of your teeth to improve their appearance. If you’re after that Hollywood smile but always find yourself covering your mouth to hide your dental flaws, veneers may be just the fix you need.
Veneers can address many dental problems, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth with gaps between them
- Discolored teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Small or irregularly shaped teeth
Some people need just one veneer to cover a damaged tooth, but others get multiple shells to create a sparkling, symmetrical smile. The front eight teeth are the most common to get veneers.
At Smile Design Manhattan, our veneers are handcrafted by a master ceramist to match the shade of your teeth.
What’s the process?
If you’re interested in veneers, one of our cosmetic specialists verifies you’re a good candidate. Then they take digital X-rays of your teeth and work with you to design the smile you want. They help you choose from more than 30 color shades to find the exact match for your teeth.
Next, we make molds of your teeth and send those off to our master ceramist, who crafts your porcelain shells. When they’re ready, you return to the office, and our specialist bonds the veneers to your teeth, doing any necessary shaping for comfort and aesthetics.
When you look in the mirror, your Hollywood dream smile will be real.
Veneers are an efficient treatment solution for multiple issues — you don’t have to visit an orthodontist, dentist, and oral surgeon. You can take care of the procedure with a couple of trips to your dentist’s office.
To take care of your new veneers, follow the same oral hygiene routine we recommend for your natural teeth: brush at least twice a day, floss once a day, and visit your dentist at Smile Design Manhattan regularly.
With care, your veneers should last 10-20 years.
If you’ve got Hollywood on your mind and want a smile to match, schedule a consultation today with the Smile Design Manhattan team by calling our office at 646-278-4579 or using the online booking tool.
