Are you becoming embarrassed by your smile because a tooth is cosmetically damaged? If so, you should come to our dental practice, Gauri Savant DDS, where your cosmetic tooth problem can be beautifully fixed by our dentist in New York NY, Dr. Gauri Savant, who can provide you with a permanent porcelain veneer.
A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is made to cover the front of a tooth. A patient can get one porcelain veneer to fix the appearance of a cosmetically damaged tooth, or can get many dental veneers to attain a perfect smile. A porcelain veneer is permanently attached to the tooth, and is made to last for many years. However, since a porcelain veneer does not strengthen the tooth in any way, it cannot be used to fix a damaged tooth, or to improve its function. If our dentist in New York NY determines that your tooth problem is not purely cosmetic, our dentist may instead recommend that you get a porcelain crown. A porcelain crown will cover your tooth on all sides, and will strengthen and improve the function of the tooth. However, if our dentist confirms that the tooth is only cosmetically damaged, a porcelain veneer can be made specifically for your tooth, and prove to be an attractive and cost-effective solution for your cosmetic smile problem. Dental veneers can be used to fix many different types of cosmetic dental problems including fixing the appearance of: teeth that are too short; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are discolored and cannot be fixed with dental whitening methods; and many other cosmetic tooth problems. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, but they are also extremely strong.
