Porcelain veneers for crooked front teeth
Porcelain veneers are one of the best ways to have the appearance of straighter teeth. New York City-area men and women who have front teeth that are slightly crooked and do not present any bite issues can enjoy the benefits of veneers. These tooth coverings are capable of reshaping your teeth and making them look straight without the need for an orthodontic procedure. During your consultation with Dr. Farber, she will determine if you are a candidate for veneers and if this is the best treatment course for your needs. In more extreme cases when teeth are overly crooked, it may be recommended to straighten your teeth before undergoing additional cosmetic procedures in order to obtain your desired results.
Dental veneers for a beautiful smile
Porcelain veneers are lightweight, thin covers created with durable, stain-resistant porcelain that are secured to the fronts or sides of teeth to deliver a beautiful smile. Once Dr. Farber deems this is the right procedure for you, impressions will be made of your teeth. Your customized porcelain veneers will be created by J. Kim Dental Aesthetics in the New York City area. For the most natural look, our skilled cosmetic team customizes each veneer restoration to the ideal size, shape, length, and width. Veneers are made to complement the jaw structure, facial shape, and other characteristics to deliver high-quality smile results. A custom color is formulated for the shade of the veneers to give each patient the brighter, whiter smile they desire.
When the veneers are back from the lab, you will return for a follow-up appointment so the process can be completed. A small portion of tooth enamel will be removed to allow room for the porcelain veneer to be bonded to each tooth. The last step involves Dr. Farber making minor adjustments to ensure that your new veneers fit comfortably.
Veneers can address chipped teeth and beyond
Dental veneers are often a great option for a dental makeover, especially when one or more aesthetic concerns are affecting the smile. Beyond chipped and stained teeth, dental veneers have the ability to mask several variations of cosmetic dental imperfections, including worn-down, misaligned, or irregularly shaped teeth.
Advantages of porcelain veneers over Invisalign®
While Dr. Farber offers both of these solutions to assist New York City patients achieve their goal of straighter teeth, porcelain veneers offer several advantages over Invisalign, including:
- Fewer dental visits. Treatment with Invisalign can take a year or longer and involves regular appointments, while porcelain veneers can be completed in a couple of visits.
- Improves the shape of the teeth. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of uneven teeth, whereas Invisalign only corrects the alignment.
- Hides other issues. Porcelain veneers can cover small chips, cracks, or breaks in teeth that Invisalign treatments can't improve.
- Quicker results. Invisalign results can take a year or more to complete, much like traditional braces, whereas porcelain veneers can be completed in two appointments.
