If you have things that you dislike about your smile, you’re not alone. Plenty of people are walking around Manhattan trying not to show their teeth and keeping their lips closed for photos and selfies. Instead of feeling self-conscious about aesthetic smile problems, vow to make a change for good with customized NYC cosmetic dentistry. Fix every unsightly feature of your teeth with long-lasting upgrades.
When you’ve had a crown for a while, it can sometimes show its age, especially if you didn’t get a full porcelain crown to start. A PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crown may show dark lines at the margins over time and, if you grind your teeth, some unsightly areas can develop even faster because of gum recession. There may even be decay in the same area.
Oddly Shaped Teeth
Some teeth erupt in funky shapes and sizes. They don’t match their neighbors or they stick out from the rest of your smile because they’re too big, too small, a different color, or have other flaws. Some teeth break or become worn down from use or teeth grinding.
Dullness, discoloration, and stains are all problematic and interrupt what could be a white, beautiful smile. Some teeth sport darker stains than others, drawing attention to themselves and interrupting your entire smile. Some teeth are all a similar shade of yellow or brown and look dull, dingy, and unhealthy.
Uneven smiles are a real concern for many people, whether you’re born with teeth that just happen to be longer on one side than the other, or whether you grind your teeth so severely that one-half of your mouth is permanently altered. This problem can lead to a look that isn’t proportional and make someone crave a bright, white, straight smile that makes teeth look consistent and complementary.
Get NYC Cosmetic Dentistry to Correct Smile Problems
All the problems listed above are easily repaired with NYC cosmetic dentistry. The only question is: Are you ready to make a change and transform your smile permanently? There are many ways to change aesthetic smile problems.
- Porcelain crowns: A new porcelain crown is customized in size, shape, and color and covers problematic teeth to conceal anything that’s going on that you don’t like.
- Porcelain veneers: Many NYC cosmetic dentistry patients are drawn to prepless veneers, the procedure that changes your smile without altering the natural teeth underneath. The porcelain shields are carefully designed in color, shape, size, and length to complement your appearance.
- Laser gum lift: When you have more gum tissue showing than teeth, one way to transform your smile is through a targeted laser gum lift. This minimally invasive treatment removes excess gum tissue to reveal more tooth enamel, making your smile bigger.
The beauty of working with a versatile and talented NYC cosmetic dentist is that your smile makeover will be customized to your needs. Your dentist will review what your teeth need and make recommendations. The solution could be a combination of crowns and veneers, or you may need other smile upgrades to get to a perfect smile.
