It’s no surprise that we all want to look our best and our smile is a big part of the equation in this. When our teeth are imperfect, we may become more self-conscious and hide our smile. Our smile is the first impression given to a stranger, and we want it to look its best. With the help of cosmetic dentists, Drs. LouAnn Van Liew and Deborah Hoover of All About Smiles Dentistry, patients can enhance their smile with porcelain veneers. Our porcelain veneers treatment in Forked River is one of our most sought after treatments.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also described as “dental veneers,” are shell-like restorations custom-made for patients. The shell is made to bond onto the front of a tooth to disguise imperfections. Many patients will use porcelain veneers to address common aesthetic issues that can occur on the anterior (front) teeth, including:
Dental veneers are fabricated to match the patient’s existing teeth to ensure it blends in naturally with their smile. You can use porcelain veneers to cover one tooth or many. Patients with various imperfections on the teeth near the front of the smile will use several porcelain veneers to transform their look completely!
Do Veneers Stain?
They do not, which sets them apart from alternative solutions such as cosmetic bonding, which needs to be replaced regularly due to staining.
Porcelain Veneer Process
Our Forked River cosmetic dentist starts with an evaluation during which patients can learn more about veneers and determine if they are a good candidate. Once a patient chooses to move forward with placing these restorations, the teeth are prepped by removing a thin portion of the enamel. The prep helps ensure the final veneer will adhere without adding unwanted bulk. Impressions are created and sent to a laboratory with instructions regarding the final appearance of the veneer. Once the restoration is completed and returned to All About Smiles Dentistry, our dentist will bond the restoration to the tooth to create the finished result.
