Sometimes, a little assistance from a dentist is necessary to enhance the color, shape, size, and alignment of a tooth. Dr. Heidi Nelson may recommend veneers to patients who wish to create a new smile. These custom-made shells, often crafted from porcelain, get placed on the surface of the enamel to improve its appearance, hide stains, as well as disguise teeth that have become chipped, cracked, or uneven. To find out if veneers are right for you, visit our Sunnyside, NY office for an oral examination.
Creating a New Smile With Veneers
Veneers are designed with only your smile in mind and placed in our Sunnyside NY office. First, Dr. Nelson will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums, looking for any red flags that may indicate gum disease or decay. When these conditions are present, you may need to consider alternative treatment. If able to proceed, you'll get fitted for the restorations. In a second appointment, Dr. Nelson will apply the veneers directly to enamel using a dental cement and UV light that binds them on the surface for a secure and comfortable fit. The end result is a brand new smile to be proud of showing off. But don't forget, you must upkeep with oral care and routine dental appointments to confirm that things are going smoothly.
If you're considering cosmetic dentistry to transform your smile, schedule a consultation with Dr. Heidi. Nelson to confirm eligibility for veneers. Because this is a permanent option, it's best to address any questions or concerns during your conversation. Once given the green light to move forward, she'll ensure that you feel comfortable before, during, and after the procedure.
