Are Veneers Bad for Your Teeth?

Featured Image

A nice set of shiny porcelain veneers is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. It's among the most popular dental procedures, and it's easy to see why: veneers offer a quick, easy, and appealing way to correct a laundry list of potential dental problems. These include chipped, cracked, decayed, discolored, or otherwise irregularly shaped, spaced, or abnormal teeth.

And our dedicated dental team at SmilesNY Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry would love nothing more than to help you enjoy a long-lasting, luminescent smile. They say it's the first thing most people notice about your appearance, so why not make a stunning first impression every time?

All you have to do is contact us today. We also welcome those in New York City and Manhattan to come see us at our New York office.

Who is an ideal candidate for veneers?

It may not be surprising that an ideal candidate should be in good dental and overall health and be clear of periodontal disease, also known as periodontitis. This advanced gum disease can cause various complications in the teeth, gums, and even jawbone, precluding the application of veneers. At least until the associated infection and inflammation is taken care of.

But rest assured, our experienced doctors will help you find the best solution to revitalize your smile and improve your long-term dental health. First, we devise your "dental blueprints.” Once we've formulated a personalized treatment plan just for you, the veneer application process is much-practiced and straightforward, with your comfort and brilliant results in mind.

And, of course, veneers are perfectly safe for your teeth. They do not cause damage or discomfort to any dental tissues and, if anything, improve your health. By plugging any gaps or correcting spacing issues, veneers can prevent further misalignment that may be caused by teeth shifting through the mouth. Plus, veneers are stain-resistant and may therefore help combat the decay and erosion that would more easily tarnish natural teeth.

Enjoying a luminescent and stain-resistant smile has never been easier

Additionally, while veneers can be made from many materials, porcelain offers one of the most realistic looks and catches the light in dazzling fashion to give you a sublimely opalescent smile. Porcelain also offers superior stain resistance, easing your worries about discoloration or stains. But even though your vibrant new veneers require no special care, you will still need to be vigilant with your dental hygiene habits to maintain your overall oral health and extend the lifespan of your veneers – with proper care, they can last decades or more. Plus, our thoughtful team at SmilesNY Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in New York City will give you customized tips and tricks for maintaining your best results.

Here's how the procedure works: first, we take a dental impression to make sure that we're giving you the best fit that we possibly can. Then, we'll meticulously craft your set of porcelain veneers to your specifications, so they give you an even smile and bite with a cozy fit. Finally, once your veneers are ready, we'll remove a small amount of material from the front of your teeth to dial in the fit and facilitate a robust, secure bond. And that's it. You are now free (and encouraged) to flash your transformed, enviably bright smile for all to see.
