Non-Cosmetic Reasons to Consider Veneers

Are you dissatisfied with your smile? Have you ever considered a cosmetic fix to help improve your confidence? 

In New York, New York, our staff at Smile Design Manhattan specialize in veneers. Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment for both men and women to improve their smiles.

While many people choose veneers purely for cosmetic reasons, other patients choose this option over crowns for teeth that are broken or damaged. Not only are veneers more attractive than crowns, but they can also be custom made to match the shape and color of your teeth for a smile that's natural and authentic-looking. 

Here’s how veneers can improve your smile and make you feel more confident about your teeth. 

Fixing cracks

Not all cracked teeth are problematic, but over time, teeth can weaken. Crowns can prevent the tooth from breaking, but the look of them is not appealing to everyone. A veneer is a more attractive option for covering teeth and preventing bacteria from causing an infection. Without any kind of fix, a root canal or tooth extraction may be necessary down the road. You don't want that!

Restoring enamel

Tooth enamel serves as exterior protection for your teeth, preventing decay and germs. Enamel is pretty sturdy, but can still wear away depending on the foods you eat. People with thin enamel may be at risk of losing their enamel more quickly than the average person. To prevent further decay, veneers can help restore eroded enamel.

Filling gaps and straightening teeth

Not only is it possible to get cavities on your teeth, but you can also get them between your teeth. This tends to happen near the front of your mouth, known as interproximal cavities. These are especially common in patients with gaps between their teeth, which can make it easier for bacteria, plaque, and tartar to collect. Veneers are an effective way to treat large gaps, so your oral health doesn't suffer.

Some patients think veneers look unnatural. But veneers at Smile Design Manhattan are made by skilled ceramists to match the shape and color of your natural teeth. Don’t worry, they won’t be ordered from a generic company somewhere that makes “one size fits all” replacement teeth.
