When you visit the dentist, you often have a routine checkup and cleaning, and perhaps other general dental work is performed depending on your health needs and other circumstances. But did you know that your dentist could also help you improve the appearance of your smile as well? When it comes to giving your smile a makeover, it may not be as difficult or labor intensive as you may thing. Both cosmetic dental bonding and veneers can help to change the way that your teeth look, leaving you feeling more confident than ever. Here at Michael J Weiss & Associates our cosmetic dentist in Maspeth can provide you with either procedure depending on the nature of your concerns and what can be done to correct them.
Both dental bonding and veneers are cosmetic procedures that dentists commonly use to help improve the appearance of a patient’s teeth. They can be used to help mask imperfections or correct them in any way that they can. Dental bonding is essentially a tooth-colored resin that is applied to the tooth or teeth in question that is then molded and shaped to look like part of the tooth. Dental bonding can be used to lengthen teeth, fill in small gaps between teeth or fill in small areas that have been chipped or broken off in injuries or other incidents. Because of these reasons, dental bonding is better suited for people who have a small amount of dental imperfections that they would like to have resolved. Dental veneers however are porcelain shells that are designed to look like perfect but natural teeth. These shells are affixed to your real teeth in order to cover up any number of imperfections such as slightly crooked teeth, uneven teeth, mismatched teeth, misshapen teeth, yellowed or discolored teeth and other such concerns. Here at Michael J Weiss & Associates our cosmetic dentist in Maspeth can apply dental bonding to correct one to a few small imperfections or he can apply veneers to mask a number of different imperfections and cosmetic problems in one go.
If you find yourself feeling self-conscious about your smile, then you may be happy to know that there is no need to feel this way any longer. Contact us here at Michael J Weiss & Associates to set up your appointment with our cosmetic dentist in Maspeth today.
