Veneers in Toms River, NJ
What are porcelain veneers?
A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material – usually dental porcelain, placed over a tooth’s surface to protect the tooth from further damage and improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth. Porcelain is the material preferred by many dentists and patients now, mainly for its attributes so similar to original tooth enamel – it is strong, durable and resilient. With porcelain veneers you will be able to restore the original function of your teeth and bring back a dazzling smile!
Porcelain veneers are a great solution for various dental issues, including:
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Underbite, overbite, crossbite, etc.
- Gaps between teeth
- Poor shape and contours
- Stains and discoloration
- Position of the teeth in your mouth
How does the procedure work and what are the benefits?
The course of the procedure depends how extensive the dental-related issue is and what final result you are trying to accomplish. The great thing about porcelain veneers as opposed to tradition crowns is that only a small amount of the original tooth needs to be removed for the veneer application. After removing a small part of your tooth, the 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.
