The Dental Patient’s Guide to Veneers

If you’ve been thinking about speaking to a top dentist in NYC about cosmetic options to improve your smile, then one option you’ll want to be sure to mention is dental veneers. Dental veneers are an incredibly popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, and one that is favored by Hollywood and the general population alike. Here are a few things you’ll want to know, but do speak to your dentist for personal information:

Versatility
Dental veneers are often chosen by the best dentists because of their versatility in application. They can be used to whiten teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening methods, as well as to correct teeth that have become excessively worn, chipped, or cracked. In addition to that, veneers can be used as something of an orthodontic “cheat” to instantly create a straighter smile where misalignment is mild.

Durability
Dental veneers are thin shells made from porcelain and, as such, are almost as durable as your natural teeth in terms of eating and biting. You should care for them accordingly. Dental veneers won’t likely last the rest of your lifetime, however. With proper care, most veneers will last anywhere from eight to 15 years, when they’ll need to be replaced with a fresh set. How long they last exactly will depend greatly on your personal oral hygiene and the general health and strength of your natural teeth.

Effectiveness
Dental veneers are incredibly effective when placed by a top dentist and cared for properly at home. They are custom created for each individual tooth, and they are incredibly difficult to distinguish from natural teeth once placed. It is vital, however, to be sure that veneers are truly the best option for your teeth. If you have weaker teeth or more severe dental problems, you teeth may require other options such as bonding or dental crowns.

Proper Flossing Technique

Flossing is one of the most powerful actions you can take for excellent oral health, but it also tends to be one of the most neglected. Part of that reason is often because patients simply don’t understand the proper way to floss, and so they give up out of frustration.

Check out this quick video for a demonstration of a proper flossing technique and see for yourself just how easy it can be to take charge of your oral health. You’ll also learn about a few products that can make the process even easier, especially if you have braces.

Reasons to Consider AcceleDent

Many people avoid obtaining a beautiful, straight smile simply because of the time investment. Invisalign has revolutionized the world of dentistry and orthodontics because it offers more flexibility and discreetness during that treatment time, but there’s no getting around the fact that repositioning teeth doesn’t happen overnight. However, modern technology, beautiful thing that it is, has produced a method of significantly accelerating tooth movement, leading to more comfortable and shorter treatment times. It’s called AcceleDent .
