If you have a cosmetic dental problem which is marring the look of your smile, you will want to visit our dental practice, Gary Herskovits, DDS. At our dental practice, our Bay Ridge dentist will be able to let you know exactly what can be done to restore the look of your smile so that you can once again smile with total confidence.
At our dental practice, our expert and highly trained dentist of 30 years is Dr. Gary Herskovits. When patients come to us with smiles that need to be improved, our dentist will first determine whether or not the problem is purely cosmetic, or if there is a functional component to the problem. If a tooth needs to be strengthened as well as cosmetically improved, our Bay Ridge dentist will most likely recommend that you get a porcelain crown or crowns to correct the look of your smile. This type of porcelain restoration will not only make your tooth look better but it will also strengthen your tooth as well. A porcelain crown covers your tooth on all sides so that it can be fully functional and protected once again. Porcelain crowns fully color-match your adjacent teeth so no one will ever know that you have one, or many, in your mouth.
If our Bay Ridge dentist determines that your smile problem is purely cosmetic, he may possibly recommend that you get porcelain veneers to correct your cosmetic smile situation. Since porcelain veneers do not strengthen the tooth in any way, they can only be used to fix purely cosmetic smile problems. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells which are very strong. They are permanently attached to the teeth and will last for many years. They too are perfectly color-matched to your adjacent teeth so, once again, no one will be able to know that you are wearing them. Among the many different types of cosmetic smile situations that can be corrected using porcelain veneers are: teeth that are too short; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected using dental whitening methods; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; and many other types of cosmetic teeth problems.
