If you would like to improve the appearance of your teeth, because you’re just not satisfied with their size, shape or color, due to chips, cracks, gaps between them that are too wide, or discoloration, our dentist in Maspeth can help you with dental veneers. At Michael J Weiss & Associates, we want you to be happy and confident in your smile, and we’re dedicated to working with you to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Dental veneers are thin shells, often made of porcelain or some other tooth-colored material. They are designed at the dental lab from impressions taken of your teeth by our dentist in Maspeth, and then placed over the fronts of them. The result is an enhanced look for your teeth, covering and essentially eliminating any and all of the issues that you have been concerned about. The reason that porcelain is typically selected for veneers is that they match your natural tooth color very well. In addition, they are very resistant to staining. This will be of particular interest if you’re at risk for tooth discoloration as a result of personal habits such as using tobacco; drinking beverages like tea, coffee, red wine, and cola; and eating foods that include berries, soy sauce, and curry. Porcelain will remain whiter for longer than many other materials.
Here’s how it works: you will begin by scheduling a consultation with our dentist in Maspeth, during which you will be examined, be able to ask any questions that you have, and a determination will be made as to whether you are a good candidate for dental veneers. If so, impressions are taken. You will return at least one more, and probably two more times, during which your veneers will be fitted, adjusted as needed, and then applied permanently. This involves the removal of a small amount of tooth material to make room for your dental veneers.
Instead of addressing every cosmetic problem individually, and often temporarily, veneers from our dentist in Maspeth give you a brand new smile simply and effective, and one that will remove your self-consciousness and make you feel proud to show off the new look of your teeth.
