Your cosmetic dentist at SmilesNY Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry has the perfect tools and techniques to get rid of gaps in your teeth without anxiety or stress. How can we fix those annoying gaps? It could be a lot easier than you think. Depending on your needs, there are some go-to treatments to fix spacing in teeth in New York, NY:
Solution #1 - Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is probably the most efficient way to fix spacing problems. Your cosmetic dentist will carefully shape and apply a special tooth-colored resin to your teeth before hardening it with special light technology. Dental bonding and contouring is an affordable cosmetic procedure and can usually be done in one quick visit. It also doesn’t need prep work like veneers or crowns; however, it isn’t as strong and typically doesn’t stay on as long. Bonding and contouring is ideal for minor flaws, so if you want more extensive changes, another cosmetic or restorative procedure may be better.
Solution #2 - Porcelain Veneers
Next up in options are porcelain veneers. If you have tee th that are gapped and discolored, then this might be your best choice. These carefully crafted porcelain shells are placed by your cosmetic dentist in New York, NY so they bond perfectly to your natural teeth. This will eliminate those unwanted gaps and other imperfections you’ve always dreamed of never seeing again when you smile. Porcelain veneers are a great option for many candidates and are completely customizable for a perfect look and feel.
