Cosmetic DentistryYour smile is one of the first things others notice about you, so people who have teeth that are in poor condition, such as cracked, chipped or stained, it can be embarrassing as well as damaging to the self-esteem. New York Porcelain Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that can be applied to the outer surface of teeth to hide the imperfections.

There are several imperfections that Dr. Shahram Shekib can conceal by applying veneers to your teeth including:

  • Misaligned teeth can be corrected
  • Reducing the appearance of excessive gum when smiling
  • Crooked and/or uneven teeth
  • Permanently discolored teeth
  • Filling in empty spaces or gaps between two teeth
  • Teeth that have gray spaces between the teeth
  • A poor bite
  • Teeth that have worn down
  • Making teeth less sensitive

One of the primary advantages of New York Porcelain Veneers is that they provide immediate changes. Dental veneers are not required to have any type of invasive dental surgery for the application of veneers and they provide long lasting results. Porcelain dental veneers are designed to be resistant to damage and staining, when proper dental hygiene is routinely practiced. The veneers are attached directly to your natural teeth, so they do not provide any discomfort and they are permanently applied.If you practice good dental hygiene, porcelain dental veneers will stay intact for several years. It is important brush teeth twice each day and use only a soft bristled brush when brushing teeth that have veneers attached. The veneers are made with porcelain materials, so it is important to protect them from damage, such as cracking, by avoiding biting on hard foods. To maintain veneers, it is important to visit your dentist at least once each year to have a full dental examination and routine cleaning. If you damage a veneer or a tooth that veneers have been applied to, it is important to go to the dentist as soon as possible to have the veneer examined and if necessary, repaired. The tooth that has the veneer was most likely roughed up in order to accept the bonding material used to hold the veneer in place, so if you damage the veneer, you may experience extra sensitivity or risk damaging your natural tooth.
