Can Porcelain Veneers be Used for a Smile Makeover?November 24, 2017
Porcelain veneers are used to address myriad cosmetic imperfections. Placed over the front of the teeth, veneers can fix:
- Irregular tooth shapes and sizes
- Crooked tooth presentation
- Gaps in between teeth
- Chipped or cracked tooth enamel
- Severe tooth staining
Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct cosmetic malocclusion including overbite and underbite, and may act as an alternative to braces or surgery in certain situations.
A smile makeover is a comprehensive cosmetic dentistry treatment that addresses all functional and aesthetic issues with your teeth and gums. Because porcelain veneers are so versatile, they can be used as a standalone solution for some of our patients’ smile makeovers. The best way to determine if they can act alone or as part of a complete smile makeover for you is through a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced Manhattan cosmetic dentists. Give us a call at 212-452-3344 to schedule yours today.
Veneers and Facial Shape
Porcelain veneers can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth. In so doing, they may also improve the shape of your lips and the projection of your jaw, resulting in what amounts to a dental facelift. To accomplish this, however, your veneers must be completely customized for your smile.
Dr. Elisa Mello and Dr. Ramin Tabib work with some of the most advanced dental labs in the country to help ensure each veneer we order is designed to our exact specifications. When you come to NYC Smile Design for porcelain veneers, each one will be precisely detailed to look and feel just like your natural teeth – allowing us to blend your veneers seamlessly into your smile while addressing individual issues including jaw shape and lip collapse.
We will work directly with you while planning your treatment to ensure the veneers we create and place meet your needs and desires. If veneers alone will not be sufficient for addressing your concerns, one of our experienced cosmetic dentists will provide you information about additional options that can be used to help you feel confident in your smile.
In addition to porcelain veneers, cosmetic services that may be utilized during your smile makeover include:
- Enamel contouring
- Pinhole gum rejuvenation
- Dental bonding
- Tooth whitening
- Porcelain crowns
- Dental implants
The best way to learn which of these treatments is best suited for your needs is through a consultation at our Manhattan office. During this visit we can discuss treatment options, smile makeover costs and financing, and your options for sedation dentistry if you feel nervous about your procedure.
