The reality is this: No matter what is wrong with your teeth and smile, it can be fixed. Yes, every aesthetic dental complaint has a solution. All you need is the right Manhattan cosmetic dentist to guide you. For many patients, porcelain veneers are the one procedure they need to get a permanent VIP smile and the confidence that goes with it.

Below are just some of the problems porcelain veneers can fix.

1. Veneers Broaden a Narrow Smile

If the canines on your top row of teeth are situated behind the front teeth instead of out to the side, your smile will look narrow and crowded. Teeth that are out of proportion make your smile look small and leaves dark space in the corners of your mouth instead of teeth.

Veneers are bonded to the front of each visible tooth and shaped and sized optimally to give you a smile that is flattering in width and teeth that are flawless in shape, length, thickness, and color. Custom-designed veneers are the only cosmetic dentistry treatment that can effectively alter a narrow smile in just one procedure.

2. Veneers Correct Irregularly Shaped Teeth

Whether you have one irregularly shaped tooth or multiple irregularities, they are good at drawing attention to themselves. Porcelain veneers conceal everything that sticks out in the wrong way. Whether your teeth are too short, oversized, or didn’t fully erupt, when the size and shape of a tooth is marring your entire smile, veneers can be carefully customized and bonded in place to reshape those shape-challenged teeth.

3. Veneers Straighten Misaligned Teeth

Teeth that are gapped, crooked, or misaligned are problematic aesthetically and functionally. When veneers are carefully created to conceal every imperfection, the misalignment is no more. You can get the straight smile you’ve always wanted with a cosmetic dentistry treatment that takes only two visits to your NYC cosmetic dentist to complete – instead of years of orthodontic work. That’s priceless.

4. Veneers Balance an Asymmetrical Smile

Sometimes smiles are knocked out of balance. This usually happens over time – an asymmetrical smile develops because of gum damage or teeth that are worn on just one side of the mouth. The result is a crooked smile and obviously damaged teeth that are longer on one side than the other. Often the culprit is teeth grinding and clenching or gum recession, which is a common side effect of grinding. Veneers eliminate the imbalance to create a smile that is symmetrical from left to right, top to bottom.
