You can finally achieve that dream smile you have always wanted.
3 Common Porcelain Veneers Mistakes
Some dentists don’t have the expertise or case studies to back up claims that they can transform smiles using porcelain veneers. As a result, far too many people are left with unnatural-looking teeth and feeling ashamed about their appearance.
Working with porcelain veneers is an art form, and one that experienced cosmetic dentists take seriously and deliver with subtlety and finesse. Some of the most common porcelain veneers mistakes that other dentists make – and your Midtown Manhattan cosmetic dentist then fixes – include:
- Veneers that are too big: You can recognize immediately when someone has bad veneers. Teeth that are bulky, thick, or change the way someone speaks were not carefully edited. Your veneers should be customized for your smile in shape, size, color, and length. Only an experienced cosmetic dentist can make this happen and make the veneers look natural.
- Veneers that are the wrong color: Natural teeth are not just flat white, and those that do look opaque scream “fake.” Veneers should not be flat white, nor should they be dull or yellowish. An experienced porcelain veneers dentist knows that the color of your natural teeth needs to be taken into consideration, as well as your skin color, to develop the right level of translucency in your veneers so the color is ideal and the light reflection is on point. Good veneers look just like natural teeth – there is no substitution for this distinction.
- Veneers that are poorly bonded to the teeth: The composition of your porcelain veneers and the careful design of each veneer is critical to achieve a natural-looking smile. However, if veneers look perfect but are poorly bonded to your teeth, this could create a host of complications. The teeth must be properly prepped to make room for the veneers, even though the porcelain is ultra-thin. Improper placement and bonding can affect the appearance of the veneers, but poor bonding can also create gaps between tooth and veneer, making your mouth susceptible to infection, decay, and other oral health problems.
