Veneers are an easy cosmetic solution for imperfections displayed in your smile. They’re thin sheets of porcelain designed to match the natural contours of your teeth. They fit perfectly over the front surfaces of your teeth to cover unwanted or unusual features.
At Dental Studio of Jersey City, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth and chooses a porcelain shade that closely matches the natural shade of your teeth. They ensure that your veneers look just like the fronts of your teeth so that they don’t stand out or look like fake teeth once they’re a part of your smile. You can get several veneers or just one for a single unattractive tooth.
People turn to veneers to cover minor cosmetic imperfections in their smiles that don’t require extensive and costly dental work to fix. Your dentist might suggest veneers as a solution for these or other cosmetic flaws:
The porcelain veneers from Dental Studio of Jersey City are stain resistant and durable, so you don’t need to worry about damaging them. As long as you don’t chew on pencils, ice cubes, popcorn seeds, and other solid objects, you can expect them to look great and last for between 10 and 15 years. If they wear down, you can always contact your dentist for a new set.
The procedure for getting veneers at Dental Studio of Jersey City involves two visits. During your first visit, your dentist removes a half-millimeter thickness of tooth enamel from the surface of the tooth that needs a veneer. Then, they take a mold of your teeth and send it to a dental laboratory where experts custom craft your veneers. Your dentist may place temporary veneers over your teeth to protect them before the next appointment.
At your second appointment, your veneers are ready for application. Your dentist gives them a final check and bonds them to your teeth after removing the temporary veneers. Before they bond them with dental cement, your dentist etches your teeth for a better attachment. Finally, they remove any remaining dental cement and you’re free to go home with a gorgeous smile.
