A More Beautiful Smile with Veneers

Everyone should love their smile, but oftentimes people hide their smiles because they’re embarrassed. These embarrassments—cracked teeth, gapped teeth, stains—are fixable, though. Porcelain veneers have been a long-standing response to patients wishing for a better smile. Here are some of the ways veneers can give you a more beautiful smile.

Correcting Cracked Teeth

Sometimes accidents happen, and teeth can become cracked or pieces get chipped off. These unfortunate cracks can be embarrassing whenever you smile, but you shouldn’t have to suffer from a regrettable accident. Since there is a portion of the tooth left, porcelain veneers can be attached to the cracked tooth, or teeth, with little effort. Once the remaining tooth has been prepared, the veneer will be bonded to it through a resin that is hardened and cured from a special light.

Covering Tricky Stains

When your teeth do not respond to conventional teeth whitening treatments, dentists may offer veneers as another option. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, and they can cover those persistent stains on your teeth easily.

Filling the Gaps

Veneers can also be applied to teeth that form a gap. The original teeth will have some of the surface enamel scraped off—a necessary part of the preparation—and the veneers will be applied through the bonding process. Your bite will match up, and it may improve with porcelain veneers.

Restoring Your Smile

The great thing about porcelain veneers is their customizable quality. Veneers need to bond with the original teeth, and even though your teeth may look questionable before the procedure, the veneers will restore them to their original beauty. Your dentist can design your veneers to match your original and natural teeth so no one, not even you, will notice you have veneers.

Potential Issues with Wisdom Teeth

Depending on your situation, your dentist may recommend a wisdom tooth extraction. If wisdom teeth erupt incorrectly, you may develop a severe infection, and, as you can see in the video, removal may be the only way to combat it.

During your regular dental checkups, the dentist will examine your x-rays to determine if you need a wisdom tooth extraction. Sometimes, a wisdom tooth may erupt partially and create a hole where food and bacteria can gather. This infested hole can cause an infection that can begin to infect your surrounding teeth. Heed your dentist’s advice as soon as possible.

What's Involved in a Smile Makeover?

Smile Makeover Manhattan

If you are unhappy with your smile—due to missing or crooked teeth, stains, or damages—then make an appointment with your dentist who can help revitalize your smile. Whatever your dental issue involves, there is likely a procedure to correct it. Here is what you can expect when you receive your smile makeover.

Meeting With Your Dentist
When you visit your dentist, he will thoroughly examine your teeth. This exam will include analyzing your oral health before anything else. Once your health has been addressed, and corrected if needed, your dentist can recommend a variety of restorative treatments. These treatments and procedures will depend on your need for them, as well as your candidacy. Some procedures, such as porcelain veneers, require healthy teeth with which to bond. Not every patient is qualified for certain procedures and treatments.

Deciding on the Procedure
Once your dentist has examined your teeth and gums and determined that they are healthy, he can recommend different treatments for your smile makeover. Some of these procedures might include:

  • Crowns, which are used to cover teeth that have undergone root canals or have been damaged. Damages may include cracked teeth or severely stained surfaces. A crown procedure typically requires two visits to take an impression of the affected tooth, and then to install the permanent restoration.
  • Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes a curing light with professional-grade whitening gel.
  • Invisalign braces can replace metal braces for orthodontic issues. These braces consist of several custom trays that the patient switches out as the teeth shift into a more desirable position.
  • Implants or bridges are permanent restorations to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. When teeth are too damaged to save, your dentist may recommend a bridge or implant to restore your smile.

What Can Invisalign Treat?

Dentist Manhattan

If you are curious about Invisalign braces, you should schedule a consultation with your dentist. As your dentist will explain, Invisalign braces can treat gapped teeth, overly crowded teeth, overbite, and underbite.

Only a dentist can determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign braces, so it is important to consult with your cosmetic dentists directly. In general, Invisalign braces are ideal for treating many bite problems, including overbite and underbite. Overbite occurs when the bottoms of your top teeth protrude over the tops of your bottom teeth. Conversely, underbite is a condition where the tops of your bottom teeth reach upward and over the bottoms of top teeth. These bite problems can have major oral health and cosmetic consequences. Overly crowded teeth are also treatable by Invisalign braces. Crowded teeth can be difficult to clean, leading to tooth decay and gingivitis. Invisalign braces are also highly effective in correcting gaps between the teeth.

Dr. Michael J. Wei is pleased to offer Invisalign braces in Manhattan. It is never too late to achieve a beautiful smile and straighter teeth. Call (212) 982-4080 to get started today.
