Lumineers are an ideal alternative to porcelain veneers for many patients. These wafer-thin tooth coverings fix many of the same issues as porcelain veneers without requiring any changes to the surfaces of the teeth. Getting Lumineers is painless, and the whole process can be completed in two visits. Is this the right cosmetic dentistry treatment for you? Here are some signs you should consider Lumineers.
Lumineers are ideal for people with severely discolored teeth, chipped teeth, and excessive gaps between the teeth. They can also be used to correct moderate tooth misalignments and to reshape small teeth. One of the major advantages of Lumineers is that they are long-lasting and resistant to staining. You no longer have to worry that your coffee and red wine are discoloring your teeth.
Discuss your cosmetic dentistry treatment goals with Dr. Michael J. Wei, DDS, PC to find out if Lumineers are the right choice for you. You can make an appointment at our Manhattan dental office by calling (917) 720-2769.

If you’re unhappy with the state of your smile, there’s no reason you have to accept it. There are many treatments your cosmetic dentist can use to fix any dental flaws and help you build a smile you’ll love to flash. From tooth bonding and veneers to Invisalign, here is a look at some of the most popular treatments performed by cosmetic dentists.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
With dental bonding, your dentist can fix a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including chips, gaps, and discoloration. During bonding, your dentist will etch the surface of your tooth to create a better surface for sticking, and then apply a resin or porcelain material to fix the tooth flaw. The material is bonded securely to your dentin for a natural appearance. Before applying the bonding material, your dentist will match the color closely to your natural teeth for a seamless appearance.
Veneers are wafer-thin, porcelain coverings that are attached to the surfaces of your teeth. They are used to cover extreme discoloration and to hide gaps, broken teeth, and cracks. To place veneers, your dentist will remove a thin layer of your tooth surface to make space for the veneer, and then attach it with a special adhesive that is then cured with a light to seal.
If your teeth are misaligned, wearing metal braces isn’t your only treatment choice. Instead, you can opt for Invisalign. With Invisalign, rather than using brackets and wires, your dentist can adjust your bite using a series of clear, plastic aligners. You’ll remove the aligners to eat and to follow your usual oral hygiene routine, so treatment is simple. With Invisalign, you can achieve the same results that you would with braces—and often in a shorter period of time.
