How Can Veneers Correct Misshapen Teeth?

By: Dr. Ellen Katz


Dental veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments used to aesthetically improve the color, size, shape, and length of teeth. Veneers can be made of composite or porcelain, and are an excellent option for those who want to fine-tune their smiles. If you are looking for a reliable and experienced dentist who offers veneers in New York, NY, Dr. Ellen Katz at Maison BE Dental Studio is an excellent choice.

How do veneers work?

Veneers are custom-made to fit over the front of the teeth, and they can correct many aesthetic dental issues like discoloration, gaps, chips, and misshapen teeth. The first step in getting veneers is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Katz. During your initial consultation, Dr. Katz will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment. If veneers are the right choice for you, she will take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used in our dental lab to create your custom veneers.

What's the difference between composite and porcelain veneers?

Composite veneers and porcelain veneers are the two most common types used to help teeth appear natural and stunning. Composite veneers are made of a tooth-colored resin material that is bonded to the front of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of high-quality dental ceramic that are custom-created to fit comfortably over the front of your teeth. While both types of veneers can improve the look of your teeth, porcelain veneers are typically more durable and long-lasting than composite veneers.

How long can veneers last?

Dental veneers can be a long-term solution for correcting misshapen teeth and last many years with proper care and maintenance. Porcelain veneers are enduring and can last up to 15 years or more with good care. Composite veneers can last up to seven years or more with intentional care. It is essential to practice good oral hygiene, avoid biting on solid objects, and schedule regular dental checkups with Dr. Katz to ensure the longevity of your natural-looking veneers.
