If you have a tooth with a cosmetic dental problem, or want to achieve a perfect smile, you may be a good candidate for treatment with dental veneers. At our dental practice, Mark Heller DMD, our Great Neck NY local dentist, Dr. Mark Heller, will be able to assess your individual situation to determine whether or not your cosmetic dental problem can be fixed with dental veneers.
When a patient has a tooth that is cosmetically Unappealing for one reason or another, it can often be fixed by our Great Neck NY local dentist with the use of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are made to permanently attach to the front of the tooth. They are extremely thin but extremely strong, and are made to last for many years. The porcelain veneer will cover the front of the tooth and change the way the tooth looks. A patient can get one porcelain veneer to fix one cosmetically-damaged tooth, or can get many porcelain veneers to achieve a beautiful and uniform smile. If our dentist determines that your cosmetic dental problem also has a structural component to it, it most likely will the recommend instead that you get a porcelain crown to fix the tooth. The crown will not only fix the appearance of the tooth, but will also strengthen the tooth since the tooth will be covered on all sides. Porcelain veneers can be used to fix many different types of cosmetic dental situations including: teeth that are too short; teeth that are chipped; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are discolored and cannot be fixed with traditional dental whitening methods; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; and many other cosmetic dental problems. Porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are made to perfectly color-match adjacent teeth so no one will know you have them in your mouth.
