Porcelain veneers are the most versatile cosmetic dentistry solution you can choose. We can correct several cosmetic dental problems at once with porcelain veneers, and they conserve and protect your natural teeth. Your veneers are created to look just like your natural teeth, only better, so they will blend in beautifully with the surrounding teeth and be undetectable to the untrained eye.
What are porcelain veneers?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain constructed to duplicate the ideal aesthetic properties of a natural tooth. It is then bonded over your minimally prepared natural tooth structure. Typically done to cosmetically improve a smile or correct the way your teeth meet, laminates offer the finest in aesthetic services available today. The veneer is ultra-thin, and we remove a tiny amount of your tooth material, so the veneer sits flush and does not feel thick or clunky. Even though it is thin, the veneer becomes very strong once it is bonded to your tooth. Porcelain is also very resistant to staining, so your veneers will stay beautiful for years to come. These veneers also improve the function of your smile. Through the restoration process, we can change the shape, color or position of a tooth in order to achieve optimal form, aesthetics and function.
What are the advantages?
In this day and age, many busy adults don’t have the time or disposition for the multiple office visits required with traditional orthodontics. For many patients, “instant orthodontics” can be achieved with cosmetic dentistry in two or three appointments. To put this in perspective, it could take up to one to three years to achieve the same results with traditional orthodontics. Among the other advantages is the fact that teeth can be straightened, teeth length restored, and the desired color, shape and contour corrected and balanced to harmonize with your face and smile.
What Porcelain Veneers Can Do for You
Porcelain veneers are used to correct many cosmetic dental problems and bite alignment. Examples include:
Discoloration, including discoloration that is resistant to whitening
Twisted or misshapen teeth
Teeth which are too short or unevenly sized
Gaps in between teeth
Porcelain veneers can correct several of these problems at once, saving you time and money and preserving as much of your natural tooth material as possible.
One of the most popular applications for porcelain veneers is “instant orthodontics.” In just two or three visits to our Kinnelon-area office, we can correct the appearance of crooked teeth, and at the same time correct other cosmetic dental problems, such as discoloration, teeth which are too short or unevenly sized, and more.
Where traditional orthodontics typically takes several years and a serious commitment on your part to straighten your teeth, porcelain veneers are an economical way for you to have a straight, beautiful smile in a very short amount of time, without the hassle of wearing braces.
