People say there is no such thing as perfection, but cosmetic dentists beg to differ. You can have a perfect smile – a smile that is perfect for you – when you undergo a customized smile makeover. Whether you’re getting cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, or a little bit of both, it’s possible to walk away from your NYC dentist’s office with a perfect smile to start the new year.
You Get to Define Smile Makeover Perfection
Not all smile makeovers leave you with flawless teeth, and that’s OK. It’s not necessary. Some cosmetic dentistry treatments, like teeth whitening, can be done on teeth that are crooked or gapped or not quite unblemished and still leave them looking like perfect teeth. Whiter teeth simply make you look happier, healthier, and younger. That’s something to smile about, even if the smile isn’t otherwise impeccable.
Other patients are simply looking for a way to fix one or two problem teeth. A porcelain crown could fix that misshapen, weak tooth. Cosmetic tooth bonding could correct that one stained tooth that is beyond whitening. Your Manhattan dentist knows the path to perfection – all you need do is ask.
The Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment
If you want to get as close to a perfect smile as possible, porcelain veneers should be your top choice. Customized in size, shape, color, and style, veneers are uniquely yours, and they are designed to conceal every flaw and imperfection of your teeth.
Depending on your budget, squeamishness, and smile goals, you may be a good candidate for different types of veneers, like:
- Lumineers: Minimal prep and super-thin veneers makes Lumineers the beloved little sister of conventional porcelain veneers. Only a light sanding and cleaning of the tooth enamel is necessary to get teeth ready to receive these incredibly thin porcelain shields.
- Prepless veneers: Hate the thought of your tooth enamel being ground down to make room for veneers? Prepless veneers may be your calling. Very little prep is necessary beyond a thorough teeth cleaning to get teeth ready to receive veneers. That means, should you ever wish to reverse the procedure (though your teeth will look so gorgeous why would you want to) you can, without worrying about your enamel having been disturbed underneath the veneers.
- Microthin veneers: The latest advancement in cosmetic dentistry, Microthin veneers are just that – superthin porcelain shields that are seamlessly fitted over natural teeth, eliminating the need for tooth enamel reduction. Just like all other veneers, Microthin veneers can broaden a narrow smile, enlarge small teeth, and cover up teeth that are worn, chipped, or cracked.
All veneers are intended to cover up the things you dislike about the appearance of your smile and leave them looking better than ever. The route to get there is up to you and your Midtown cosmetic dentist.
