Dental Veneers in Midtown Manhattan are a versatile cosmetic dentistry option because they conceal many dental flaws. So whether you have a gummy smile or short teeth, veneers create the illusion of symmetry.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of quality porcelain that fit the front surfaces of teeth. They are always customized to look natural in your mouth, and you can choose to veneer one tooth or several.
Veneers conceal the following dental flaws:
- Short or worn-down teeth
- Gummy-type smiles
- Small gaps between teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Mildly crooked teeth
- Midline discrepancies
Veneers were mainly exclusive to celebrities and models for many years, but no longer! We are proud to offer quality dental veneers in New York, NY.
Dental Veneer Process and Cost
Your Midtown dentist has you in for a comprehensive consultation. At this visit, you discuss your smile goals, and your dentist lets you know whether dental veneers will help you reach them.
If you decide to move forward with veneers, we will arrange your placement visit. At this visit, your dentist removes a bit of enamel to help your veneers fit flush with your natural teeth. Then they are bonded to the treated teeth. Because we remove some enamel, veneers are thought of as permanent.
Permanent means if you damage a veneer in the future, it must be replaced.
As far as cost, this varies for several reasons, including the number of veneers you choose, the complexity of your case—for example, necessary pretreatments, and any added cosmetic treatments you may have selected during your consultation. For example, some patients choose to start with a tooth whitening treatment in order to select a lighter veneer color.
Caring for Dental Veneers
Dental veneers do not require a lot of upkeep, but it’s important to brush, floss, and visit your dentist on schedule for dental exams and teeth cleanings.
