What Are Veneers & What Situations Call for Them?, Manhattan, New York

If you want to enhance the appearance of your teeth, your dentist may offer veneers as a solution. Below, Pure Dental Care in New York, NY, provides insight on what these cosmetic solutions are and why some people get them. 

Everything to Know About Veneers

What Are They?

Veneers are essentially coverings that change the appearance of your teeth. They are typically made out of very thin porcelain. To get them, a person meets with a dentist who will take a mold of their teeth to use when crafting the veneers. The dentist will also help the patient decide on a color that naturally complements them. Once the veneers are ready, they are adhered to the patient’s existing teeth with a bonding glue—within a few hours, you’ll be set to eat and drink as normal.  

Why Do People Get Them?

veneersThose who desire a more uniformed smile may opt to get veneers on several teeth to hide imperfections. For example, having one or two teeth that are smaller than the others can easily be fixed with the application of these cosmetic solutions. Individuals who have dental trauma, such as broken teeth, or whose enamel is discolored may also want them.

If you have additional questions about veneers or would like to schedule a consultation, call up your local dentist. From whitening your smile to filling in gaps and perfecting alignment, veneers could be an ideal option for you.
