Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio in Staten Island, NY encourage patients considering some cosmetic dentistry to explore all of the options. There are many ways to obtain that picture perfect smile of your dreams, and one solution might be to use porcelain veneers for straighter teeth or an improved smile.

As your trusted dentist in Staten Island, we might recommend porcelain veneers for any number of reasons. Often called an “instant makeover” they require just two office visits to give you an improved smile. Also called dental veneers, they are usually recommended by our cosmetic dentist for patients with:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Teeth with gaps or wide spaces
  • Teeth deeply stained and unable to be whitened
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth with mild alignment issues

It takes only one visit with our porcelain veneers specialist to determine if you can use porcelain veneers for straighter teeth, or if a more aggressive approach would be required. In some instances, we might suggest that you rely on orthodontics if veneers cannot straighten your smile. If you are lucky enough to use veneers as your solution, you will be able to obtain that corrected smile quickly and easily.

Using Porcelain Veneers for Straighter Teeth

How can you actually use porcelain veneers for straighter teeth? It helps to understand that veneers are applied to teeth after the teeth themselves are properly prepared. A bit of enamel is removed to make space for the veneers, and if you have mild misalignment or unevenly sized teeth, this is the moment when everything can be adjusted and veneers made to create a much straighter smile.
