Dental Veneers in Belleville NJ
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic service that provides thin, custom-made shells which cover the visible surface of your teeth giving your smile an improved appearance. They’re made out of tooth-colored materials and individually created to improve the color, shape, and size of your teeth.
Types of Veneers
Within cosmetic dentistry, there are two types of veneers that are commonly used by your professional. Porcelain veneers are much more durable, resist stains better and typically last longer. They also give your smile a more natural look, one that you’re more than happy to share. There are also composite resin veneers that aren’t made in the laboratory, unlike the porcelain kind, and are applied directly to the teeth. While they’re less expensive and can be applied immediately, they have a shorter lifespan.
When should you consider dental veneers?
Feel free to ask us about dental veneers if:
• Your teeth are stained or discolored and you want to cover it
• Your teeth are crooked and want them easily aligned
• Your teeth have gaps or spaces in between them and want them hidden
• Your teeth are chipped or broken and want them restored
How It’s Done
If you’re interested in receiving porcelain veneers, two visits are typically required. During the first visit, there are a few important steps that need to be completed. First, your dentist in Belleville NJ will prepare your teeth to be fitted for the veneer by trimming a portion of them so the veneer can be properly bonded to the surface. Depending on your individual treatment, you may even receive a temporary veneer depending on how much was removed before. The reason for this is so your porcelain veneer can be prepared in a laboratory.
If you’ve received a temporary veneer, it’ll be removed during your second visit. Your porcelain veneer will have arrived and be prepared to see if it fits well on your teeth. Once you’re happy and satisfied with the look and feel of the veneer, it will be bonded to the surface of your teeth and have an improved, beautiful smile!
