How Veneers Work to Give You a Brighter Smile

Are you hesitant to smile when snapping a selfie? In the United States, more than half of adults hide their mouths when they smile, mainly because they’re embarrassed by their teeth. Your self-esteem and confidence are impacted when you feel ashamed of your teeth. Luckily, our professionals can mask any kind of imperfection with dental veneers. 

Veneers are an effective way to enhance your oral health, from brightening your teeth to repairing chips, cracks, and gaps without braces. At Brooklyn City Dental, we can drastically improve your smile with veneers, from the color to the alignment and shape of your teeth. Thanks to their dental art expertise, Dr. Mark Zafir, and Dr. Nancy Aft will make you feel proud of your smile.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded (attached with a special adhesive) over the top of your existing teeth. They’re so thin that not even you can tell the difference between a veneer and your natural teeth. Your body treats veneers the same as other teeth since they’re biocompatible, which means they’re gentle on gums and mouths, and they don't change your eating or speaking habits.

Laminate veneers are even thinner than regular porcelain veneers. Although laminates require less tooth preparation than porcelain veneers, they still dramatically transform the appearance of your teeth.

We customize your veneers so that they fit perfectly over your teeth. Our experts create them to match the color of your existing teeth, so no one will notice you’ve had dental work. Plus, veneers don’t require any special care and are extremely low maintenance. If you take good care of them, just like your natural teeth, they could even last up to 15 years, making them a long-lasting and durable option to give you a brighter smile.

How can veneers give me a brighter smile?

It’s possible to conceal and correct problems using veneers in nearly every dental situation.

Covering stains

As your body ages, your teeth age as well, appearing dull, discolored, or stained. Drinking wine or soda frequently can also cause tooth stains. Drs. Zafir and Aft use veneers to give you a beautiful, bright smile without any type of whitening procedure. Furthermore, the veneers are stain-resistant, so you can continue eating and drinking your favorite things without worrying about stains. Consider making an appointment at Brooklyn City Dental for bright, white teeth in time for holiday photos this year.

Fixing too-small teeth

Do you have a smile that you feel is too “gummy”? Veneers are a great solution for enlarging your teeth to a size that you’re more comfortable with. Disproportionately small teeth can be caused by genetics or habits like grinding your teeth. We can help with teeth of disproportionate sizes, no matter what the cause may be. 

Repairing chips, gaps, and cracks

Choosing to wear braces is a costly and time-consuming process. Fortunately, veneers can eliminate gap-toothed smiles and fix misaligned teeth in a much shorter period. Additionally, veneers are a great way to save cracked teeth to help you avoid painful dental issues in the future.

Enjoy the benefits of veneers

Veneers are perfect for achieving a beautiful, bright smile and restoring your confidence. They’re also an ideal solution to improve and maintain optimal oral health. Brooklyn City Dental specialists Dr. Zafir and Dr. Aft are available to educate you about veneers to help you make the best choice for your smile.
