Veneers

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers can help improve the appearance of your smile. They are custom-made, thin shells that cover the front of your teeth and look and feel like beautiful natural teeth. Veneers help correct teeth that are:

  • Misaligned
  • Stained
  • Chipped
  • Broken
  • Cracked
  • Decayed
  • Crooked
  • Gapped
  • Worn down
  • Weak

If your natural teeth are otherwise in good shape and strong, veneers may be the simple cosmetic solution that restores your smile without invasive dental work.

What should I expect during treatment?

Your dentist reviews your medical history, completes a dental exam, and takes X-rays to determine how healthy your teeth and gums are and if you’re a good candidate for veneers. Veneers placement is usually a two-step process:

Step 1

Your dentist prepares your teeth for veneers by removing a small amount of enamel, or the surface of the teeth.

The dental team uses local anesthesia to numb the area if you’d like and takes an impression or digital scan of your teeth for a dental lab. The lab creates your new, custom-made veneers over the next 1-2 weeks.

Step 2

When the veneers are ready, you schedule another appointment so the Dental Professionals team can bond, or cement, the veneers to your natural teeth.

They adjust the veneers if necessary to make sure they fit properly. The results are whiter teeth and a beautiful smile you’re proud to show off.

Which type of veneers is right for me?

The dentists at Dental Professionals of Jersey City often recommend da Vinci® veneers to achieve desired cosmetic results, as daVinci is a trusted, quality brand.

If your natural teeth are in good shape, you might be a good candidate for Lumineers®, which improve your smile with little to no preparation of natural teeth prior to placement.

How should I care for my new veneers?

Veneers are long-lasting, permanent teeth. Care for them the same way do with your natural teeth by:

  • Brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing every day
  • Scheduling regular dental cleanings and exams
  • Limiting or avoiding stain-causing drinks like soda, coffee, tea, and red wine

Don’t let less-than-perfect teeth prevent you from smiling confidently. When you’re ready for the bright smile of your dreams, call Dental Professionals of Jersey City for a consultation or book an appointment online today.
