Did you know that smiling improves your mood and also the moods of those around you? It’s true – your smile is a powerful thing! When you’re confident about your smile, you draw others to you. But if you’re too embarrassed by cosmetic flaws to smile at all, you may be pushing them away.
At Boss Dentistry, we enjoy working with patients like you who want a more attractive smile. Cosmetic dentistry and services like porcelain veneers at our Bridgeton, NJ dental office can improve your smile so that you never want to hide it again.
Hide Smile Flaws with Porcelain Veneers
If you see perfect smiles all around you, don’t be discouraged. The chances are that some of them have had a little help from porcelain veneers to achieve that gorgeous grin.
Porcelain dental veneers hide a multitude of flaws. They are thin ceramic shells that are customized to create a new tooth surface. Instead of seeing smile imperfections, with veneers, all you’ll see is a beautiful tooth.
Since a dental veneer conceals what’s beneath it, our cosmetic dentists can use them to resolve smile flaws like:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Uneven gaps and spacing
- Rotated teeth
- Crowded or poorly aligned teeth
- Size or shape discrepancies
- Severe tooth staining or discoloration
How We Make Porcelain Veneers Work for You
You have unique wants and desires when it comes to whatever you have in mind for your smile. So every veneers makeover we perform is customized to match your needs and expectations. Whether you need one or two veneers or an entire set, we’ll deliver the results you’re looking for.
Once we decide that porcelain veneers at our Bridgeton area dental office can help you, the process typically takes two appointments to complete:
During your first, we will remove a thin layer of your tooth’s surface. Since a veneer adds bulk, we need to remove a similar amount to achieve natural-looking results. The next step is to take impressions and choose a natural-looking shade for your veneers that blends with your smile. We’ll create temporaries for you to wear, and a custom dental lab uses our specifications to customize your final veneers.
Two weeks later, when your veneers come back from the lab, you’ll return to Boss Dentistry to have them checked for fit, adjusted as needed, and bonded to your teeth.
Extend the Life of Your Veneers
Now that you’ve invested in your smile and yourself, it’s wise to do everything you can to protect your veneers from damage. Dental porcelain resists staining and stands up well to daily wear and tear. But it can chip or crack if it’s exposed to too much of the wrong kind of force.
Don’t chew on ice, avoid hard or crunchy foods like nuts or popcorn, and don’t use your teeth as tools to open packages. With proper care and routine exams and hygiene appointments, your veneers can last as long as ten years.
