posted: Feb. 09, 2021.
New year, new smile. Here’s how dental veneers could improve your appearance.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), about 1 in 5 American adults experience anxiety around conditions that affect the appearance of their mouth and teeth. Do you find yourself anxious about presenting to colleagues or asking for that raise because you fear that people are looking at your misshapen, discolored, or crooked smile and not you? If you feel like your smile is currently holding you back, our Brooklyn, NY, dentists Dr. Ayanna Poindexter and Dr. Chanel Trice can help turn your smile around with dental veneers.
Veneers are Versatile
One of the top reasons our Brooklyn, NY, patients choose veneers is because these custom-made, tooth-colored shells can hide a variety of dental imperfections and flaws. In fact, most minor to more severe cosmetic flaws in a smile can be covered and improved by simply bonding veneers to the front of your teeth. These tooth-shaped shells can,
- Hide stains and discolorations and brighten your smile
- Cover chips and cracks
- Elongate short, worn, or stubby teeth
- Improve the symmetry of a “gummy smile”
- Cover gaps between teeth
- Make crooked or twisted smiles appear more aligned and straighter
- Alter the shape and size of oddly shaped or malformed teeth
Improve the Overall Appearance of Your Face
The size and shape of your smile also play a role in your appearance. One of the advantages of dental veneers is that they can actually enhance and improve the shape of your face. Our expert cosmetic dental team can help craft veneers that are the ideal shape and size to help widen your smile, make your cheekbones pop, and improve the shape and symmetry of your face.
Veneers Last a Long Time
While there are other cosmetic options out there that can straighten teeth, cover small chips and gaps between teeth and whiten smiles, another advantage to choosing dental veneers is that you’ll enjoy your veneers for a long time. The longevity of your veneers really depends on you and how well you care for your smile. With the proper care, veneers can last up to 20 years. Plus, these restorations are stain-resistant, so you can also keep your smile looking youthful and vibrant for decades.
