Perhaps you don’t like the impression your smile gives. Or you might even hide your smile because you don’t want people to see your teeth.
If your teeth are crooked, misaligned, stained, or otherwise embarrassing to you, the good news is that you can have a perfect white smile in a very short amount of time with porcelain veneers.
You don’t need to go through life hiding your smile behind your hand or avoiding showing your smile altogether. Call Dr. Edward Sloyer and Dr. Brian J. Davis of Smile Designs of Long Island to find out how porcelain veneers can give you a beautiful smile.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Do for You?
People who have healthy teeth and gums but are unhappy with the way their smiles look might benefit from porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers provide a natural appearance while correcting a range of common flaws.
Veneers are a great option for patients who are looking to solve numerous esthetic concerns. Veneers can be used to cover up stained teeth that are resistant to teeth whitening treatments. Sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics,” they can conceal misaligned or crooked teeth—without the months or years needed for traditional teeth straightening. Veneers can also reshape teeth so they are better suited to your smile.
These ultra-thin pieces of porcelain are permanently bonded to your teeth, camouflaging stained or misaligned teeth. Your new smile will be perfectly spaced, perfectly shaped, and perfectly white.
How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
It is important to remember that veneers are permanent. Before they are applied, your dentist will have to prepare your existing teeth by removing a very small amount of enamel. This will ensure that after the veneers are applied, they will look natural and translucent rather than thick and fake.
Their application will also strengthen your remaining tooth structure. After the veneers are applied, you can eat and chew just like you always did. You will just have more beautiful teeth while doing it!
Veneers also look completely natural; most people will be unable to tell the difference. Porcelain veneers are also resistant to stains, so your smile will stay white and bright and straight.
Care for your veneers just as you would your natural teeth. Be diligent about home care: Brush at least twice each day and floss once each day. Stay up to date with dental visits. Take good care of your teeth to protect your investment. Porcelain veneers can last as long as 10 or 15 years!
