Veneers are also a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in Manhattan because they fix so many aesthetic complaints. If you have any of the following problems with your smile, schedule a consultation with Midtown cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael J. Wei. It’s time to find out whether you’re ready for porcelain veneers.

Narrow Smile

A wider, broader smile is a coveted thing for many people. When your top teeth are out of proportion, they create a narrow-looking smile. What does that mean? If your canines or pre-molars are behind the teeth in front of them because of crowded or oddly shaped teeth, your smile can look smaller than it is. When you smile, people will see dark, negative space instead of pearly white teeth.
Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front of each visible tooth, so your smile is optimized for size, width, shape, length, thickness, color, and alignment. Every veneer is custom-designed to build your smile into an attractive proportion so it complements your face shape, skin coloring, and even your age.

Misaligned Teeth

Didn’t get braces as an adolescent? Don’t want braces now? Veneers are a viable solution for misaligned teeth, crooked, or gapped teeth. Veneers are carefully constructed to fit over each of your teeth, effectively shielding all manner of imperfections, including misalignment.
For many patients, veneers give them the straight teeth they’ve always wanted. Instead of months and even years of orthodontic treatment, you can have a perfect smile in just two visits to your New York City dentist.

Irregularly Shaped Teeth

Irregularly shaped teeth interrupt your smile, drawing attention to themselves instead of contributing to the whole. Whether all your teeth are too short or whether you have just one or two teeth that are affecting your smile, veneers can conceal what isn’t right.

Short teeth, teeth that don’t erupt fully, oversized front teeth – if the shape and size of a tooth or teeth is bothering you, veneers conceal the problem entirely. When carefully designed and meticulously bonded in place, veneers create a complete smile that looks natural in length and size.

Asymmetrical Smile

A balanced smile is a beautiful smile, but sometimes people develop an asymmetrical smile. This problem is caused by gum damage or worn teeth on one side of the mouth so, when you smile, the grin is crooked. Your teeth can look like they’re longer on one side of the mouth than the other. This problem usually occurs because of teeth grinding or gum recession.

Veneers eliminate any imbalance in your smile. Each tooth is uniquely addressed and every veneer is carefully designed to create a symmetrical smile in shape and size.

Tetracycline Stains

Tetracycline stains don’t go away with professional teeth whitening or serious brushing. The stains developed along with the tooth itself and cannot be bleached or washed away.

Tetracycline stains are caused by antibiotic use, where the drug becomes calcified in the tooth. These stains are most likely to develop in children age 8 and younger and affect a child’s permanent teeth while they are still forming under the gums and have not yet erupted.

Porcelain veneers are a lifesaver for people who have multiple tetracycline-stained teeth or even just one problem tooth. Veneers cover the problem and give you back an unspoiled smile.
