Are you looking for effortless ways to make your smile look flawless? Veneers are a straightforward solution that can address numerous issues — and provide immediate results. Keep reading to learn more.

When you want a smile makeover, it’s hard to beat veneers. This cosmetic treatment can conceal a wide range of imperfections, which is something to smile about.

Our skilled team at Dentistry on Park on the Upper East Side in New York can completely transform your smile with veneers, and it only takes two visits. If you’ve been dreaming of a new smile, here’s how veneers can make your teeth picture-perfect.

Veneer basics

The beauty of veneers is their simple approach — they conceal any imperfection you want to hide. It all starts with a super thin shell of porcelain made specifically for you that gets bonded to your tooth. 

You can have a single veneer made to match the rest of your teeth or multiple veneers created to change your entire smile. Either way, they can change the size, shape, and color of the problem tooth all by hiding it.

As you might imagine, this unique approach gives veneers an incredible edge when transforming smiles. You can use them to correct numerous issues in your mouth, even if they occur at the same time, such as:

  • Cracks, chips, and breaks
  • Small or oddly shaped teeth
  • Gaps and alignment issues
  • Bleach-resistant discoloration and staining

Veneers can even save time and expense because you don’t have to go through lengthier treatments, like straightening minor alignment problems with Invisalign®. Instead, we can make crooked teeth appear straighter by strategically placing a veneer on top of them.

Transforming your smile with veneers

Veneers also provide an easier smile makeover solution because they only take two appointments.

What to expect during your first veneer consultation

To start, our team evaluates your teeth and oral health by performing a comprehensive dental exam and taking X-rays. We also discuss your overall goals and options for transforming your smile with veneers. 

If you’re a good candidate for veneers, we take impressions of your teeth. The dental lab uses these replicas of your mouth to make your custom veneers.

What to expect during your second veneer consultation

When the lab finishes making your custom veneers, you return to our office for placement.

During this appointment, we prepare the surface of your tooth by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the front portion you can see. This eliminates any added bulk in the area and ensures a natural fit.

Finally, we use a special bonding agent to secure the veneer and place. We repeat this process for each veneer until voila! You have a brand new smile.

After your appointment, you can resume normal activity with your flawless smile. Simply take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing each day and getting regular professional cleanings.
