There are plenty of general cosmetic dental procedures available out there that can help you improve your smile and they may not be as inaccessible as you think. There are a variety of different services that your local dentist can actually perform for you that can help to improve the appearance of your smile and give you that boost of confidence that you’ve been looking for. If you are looking to fix the cosmetic shape and formation of your teeth then you may want to consider either cosmetic dental bonding or veneers, but it first helps to know the difference. Our Woodside Queens cosmetic dentist here at Michael J Weiss & Associates can provide you with either service and can help to determine which method will work best for you.
Dental bonding and dental veneers are both cosmetic dental procedures that are often used to alter and improve the appearance of your natural teeth, but these two procedures are very different. Even though the end result always manifests in a more stunning smile, they achieve this by utilizing different tools and in different ways. Dental bonding is often used to elongate teeth, to fill in gaps between teeth and to fill in ridges or bumps in the shape of a tooth. Bonding can help to create a subtle but more symmetrical and uniform appearance which people tend to prefer. Dental bonding generally involves applying a tooth colored resin that is molded to look like part of the natural tooth. Once the resin has been molded accurately, the resin is set and hardened so that it will stay in place and hold its shape. Here at Michael J Weiss & Associates, our Woodside Queens cosmetic dentist can use dental bonding to subtly adjust and improve the overall look of your smile. They can also provide you with veneers as well. Veneers are porcelain shells that look like straight perfect teeth. They are placed on the part of the tooth that is exposed whenever you speak or smile and will instead replace the appearance of your natural tooth, not simply adjust it. Veneers can be used to cover crooked teeth, discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, misshapen teeth, bumpy teeth, uneven teeth, and much more, but t is often best used for people who wish to cover up several of these cosmetic concerns at once.
If you are concerned with the way that your smile looks then you may be interested in learning more about dental bonding or dental veneers and which one might be right for you. Call us today at Michael J Weiss & Associates to schedule an appointment with our Woodside Queens cosmetic dentist.
