Dental Veneers: 7 Fast Fixes For Staten Island Smiles

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Staten Island Affordable Dentistry

Hi! Welcome to the Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht dental blog where we take the time to answer some of the questions dental patients in the NYC area are curious about. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.

Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:

1. Chips
2. Cracks
3. Stains
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth

When you get veneers, your Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Bayonne dentist will first make a model of your teeth. Then, a dental technician uses the model to create the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed. In such cases, the procedure is irreversible.

If you are in the Bayonne area and are looking for a family, general or cosmetic dentist, give Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht a call. My name is Dr. Frederick Hecht and I have been practicing advanced dentistry in Staten Island, New York since 1976. The art and science of cosmetic dentistry is my passion.
