If you want to improve the appearance of teeth that have chips, cracks, or stains, then the best option may be veneers. These thin layers of material can cover the flaws in your teeth without going through an invasive procedure.
Dental veneers are thin pieces of material that cover the front side of your natural teeth. If you want to get them to cover stains, chips, or gaps between teeth, one of our dentists at Paramus Park Mall Dental will carefully examine your teeth to ensure they are healthy enough for them.
Our dentists in Paramus will discover if your teeth are healthy enough for veneers with a thorough examination. Your teeth need to have:
If your teeth met these criteria, then the dentist will discuss the process of getting veneers and then put temporary ones on your teeth for you to try for about a week. The temporary veneers consist of a liquid composite material from which our dentists can sculpt veneers from in Paramus.
After wearing them, you will go back to see your dentist at Paramus Park Mall Dental to discuss their fit and whether you liked them. With permission from you, your dentist will prepare your natural teeth to receive the veneers that the dental lab makes for you. That may mean filing the teeth, so they are shorter or trimming their width.
After your veneers get to our dentist’s office at Paramus Park Mall Dental, we will make an appointment for you to get them placed on your teeth. After the temporaries come off, the dentist will prepare the teeth to receive the permanent ones by using a mild acid to etch the teeth to allow the dental adhesive to bond with the teeth.
Our dentist then uses dental cement to bond with the veneers. After the cement hardens, the process is over. You’ll be given aftercare instructions for your veneers in Paramus, and then you can show off your new improved smile to your family and friends.
