A new year means it is time to assess what you hope to accomplish in 2019. For many people, they want greater confidence achieved by having a more beautiful smile. When you want to cover issues with your teeth, Dr. Nargiz Schmidt is likely to recommend dental veneers, a cosmetic dentistry procedure that comes with numerous benefits.
Whereas other treatments require anesthesia, meaning you need a couple days to recover, a porcelain veneer does not require the same level of recovery. You will be able to walk out of our practice, drive yourself home and go to work the next day.
These thin shells of porcelain may not be able to cover up every single dental issue, but they do cover a lot. Whether your teeth are broken, chipped or cracked, veneers cover up any problem areas. They are also great when your teeth have intrinsic discoloration that cannot be corrected with normal teeth whitening.
Once your restoration is in place, you typically will not have to worry for a long time. As long as you take care of your veneer, it should be able to last between 10 and 15 years. Proper upkeep entails brushing and flossing every day.
The veneer is held firmly into place over the tooth, meaning you can chew and talk with confidence. While you should avoid biting down on hard objects, such as ice cubes and your fingernails, you should be able to eat normally. You can eat all your favorite foods with peace of mind.
Veneers are just one of the many cosmetic dentistry procedures you can get at Smile in the City in Manhattan, NYC. Dr. Schmidt has helped many people in New York get the smile of their dreams, and she is more than happy to help you achieve your New Year’s resolution. You just need to call us to get started.
