If You’re Dreaming of New Cosmetic Dentistry in the New Year…

This is normal, but it isn’t something to tolerate. You don’t want to allow bacteria and plaque to enter your teeth or wait for your smile to fall apart. Modern cosmetic dentistry materials will repair and transform any negatively affected teeth and make them healthier, stronger, and last longer, plus you’ll have a permanent flawless smile that makes you look and feel like the best version of yourself.

Replace Old-Fashioned Veneers

There have been so many advancements in cosmetic dentistry, especially in the realm of porcelain veneers. Now, most patients don’t even need their teeth altered to make room for the super-thin prepless veneers that are available. The modern version of this smile makeover is so finely tuned and meticulously crafted that smiles look truly natural yet perfect. If you did have your teeth heavily prepped for your original veneer treatment, have no fear. You will still benefit from the upgraded materials and the expertise and experience of your NYC cosmetic dentist.

Fix a Wobbly Filling

Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent cosmetic restoration. They make a tooth look better and fix problems like tooth decay simultaneously. Over time, however, the filling may not adequately get the work done. Wear and tear on your teeth and older materials can lead to a damaged, wobbly, broken, or lost filling.

The best way to correct a problem like this is by replacing the filling or, if the issue has become even bigger than it was before, cover the entire tooth with a customized porcelain crown. In many cases, old fillings break down the whole tooth they’re in, so it’s necessary to protect all the surrounding enamel and a carefully crafted cap makes it happen.

Restore a Broken-Down Crown

If you have a deteriorating dental crown or a crown that is loose, don’t expect that same crown to be adjusted and bonded back onto your previously treated tooth. If you want the repair you receive to last for a long while, it’s a good idea to listen to your dentist’s recommendations and get a new porcelain crown that suits the size, color, and shape of your smile now.

Say Goodbye to Problematic Dentures

Many people have had it with their dentures. Missing teeth are a serious concern and having them replaced is critical, but over time even the best-fitting dentures can be problematic. While it’s possible to have a new set of dentures made to suit your mouth, some patients consider the many benefits of dental implants instead, which look natural and last forever.

Dental implants are surgically implanted in the jawbone and capped by permanent dentures. These teeth are not removable and the wearer does not need adhesive to make them stay in place. The dentures are attached to the dental implants for a solid and fully functional, dependable smile.
