Why You Should Consider Porcelain Veneers in NYC

If you feel uncomfortable smiling because of the appearance of your teeth, you may want to consider getting porcelain veneers in NYC. They are thin pieces of porcelain that the dentist places over your natural teeth to correct a wide range of issues, including gaps, misaligned teeth, and chips or cracks.

Dr. Mal Braverman of New York City Cosmetic Dentistry offers a variety of treatments to improve the smiles of his patients. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Braverman, call us today at 212-688-3838.

Reasons to See a Cosmetic Dentist in NYC

Cosmetic dentists help you to achieve and maintain a beautiful smile. In addition to veneers, cosmetic dentists in NYC offer these three services:

1. Implants

When patients have missing teeth it can give them a sunken appearance, because it is the underlying supporting bone that helps create facial fullness. Dental implants replace missing teeth, which also makes eating more comfortable.

The dentist paces a titanium prosthetic fixture into the bone beneath the patient’s gum tissue. Then he affixes a crown to it to serve as a replacement for the missing tooth. It take four to six months for the implant site to heal before the crown can be attached.

2. Invisalign

Invisalign is a cosmetic dentistry solution involving the use of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without brackets and wires. Patients wear custom aligners which move their teeth into position. They switch them out approximately every two weeks.

Patients remove aligners to eat and drink. They also remove them to brush and floss. It generally takes 9-15 months for teeth to move to the desired position, which includes 18 to 30 aligners. Dr. Braverman sees patients for a checkup about once every six weeks to monitor treatment.

3. Composite fillings

Many dentists fill cavities with composite resins because of the many associated benefits. Composite materials are stronger than silver amalgam, bonding to tooth enamel to prevent chips and cracks. Unlike silver amalgam, composite fillings don’t crack when exposed to heat.

Composite fillings are tooth-colored, making them a more attractive option. NYC cosmetic dentist Dr. Braverman can match composite fillings to your existing teeth so that they blend in better than silver amalgam feelings. In addition, composite resin insulates your teeth so they aren’t as sensitive to extreme temperatures.
