Three Reasons to Consider Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are placed over the front of your teeth where they serve as the new visual surface of your smile. Sized and shaped to fit your smile perfectly, dental veneers are also shaded to the exact color of surrounding teeth, allowing for a seamless transition from restoration to natural enamel.

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct issues including:

  • Crooked and irregularly shaped teeth
  • Spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked tooth enamel
  • Stubborn tooth stains

Sometimes called “instant orthodontics,” dental veneers can address cosmetic bite issues as well, helping to produce a straight, strong, and attractive smile in a fraction of the time required by orthodontic services. It should be noted, however, that veneers cannot correct malocclusion, nor can they improve the appearance of moderate to severe bite issues. For these concerns, one of the advanced orthodontic treatments offered through our office will be a better option.

Why Choose Dental Veneers?

There are dozens of reasons you might consider porcelain veneers. These include:

  • Dental Veneers are Versatile. Because they are placed over the front of teeth, they can be used to correct several common cosmetic dental concerns
  • Dental Veneers are Customizable. The porcelain veneers we offer are crafted by master ceramists right here in New York City, where we can ensure they are sized, shaped, and shaded to fit perfectly into your smile
  • Dental Veneers are Durable. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for ten or more years. Stain-resistant and incredibly strong, some dental veneers may even last a lifetime

At the Manhattan office of Dr. Elisa Mello and Dr. Ramin Tabib, we take extra care to ensure the veneers we place are perfectly suited to the smile they are enhancing. Please visit our before and after gallery to get a clear idea of what veneers can do for individual smiles.
