Veneers in Ironbound Newark, NJ
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells bonded to the front of your original teeth and designed to improve the aesthetic look as well as to restore the original function of your teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry now mainly uses two types of dental veneers – composite and porcelain veneers. Since the material of composite veneers is not as lasting and it must be replaced after some time, porcelain veneers are now preferred by many dentists and patients. Porcelain is hard, durable and very similar to the original tooth enamel.
Porcelain veneers have many benefits in cosmetic dentistry:
- they are strong and lasting
- they are highly resistant to stains from coffee, tea, smoking, etc.
- they are very natural looking so you can’t tell the difference from your original teeth
Am I the right candidate for porcelain veneers and how does the procedure work?
Porcelain veneers can help you with a variety of dental-related problems such as:
- Broken teeth
- Bite-related problems
- Gapped teeth
- Discoloration, poor shape and contours
- Tooth repositioning
If you want to know whether veneers are the best solution to your dental issue, schedule an appointment with our dentist office in Ironbound Newark and have your teeth thoroughly examined by one of our medical experts. How complex the procedure will be depends on the desired result the patient is trying to accomplish. To fit the porcelain veneer perfectly you need some extra room in your mouth, so in most cases a small amount of the original tooth has to be removed to apply a veneer. A porcelain veneer is bonded to the original tooth by placing light sensitive resin between the tooth and the veneer and then hardening it with a special curing light.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and the maintenance is fairly easy – routine teeth cleaning, brushing and flossing will do. With proper application, porcelain veneers will last for a very long time, providing a natural look and the original tooth function!
