Since we’re coming into the holidays, most of us will be on display to a degree. Now that sounds clinical, but think about it. We go to holiday parties for our work or our spouse’s work. There, especially for the spouse, there is a sizing up going on by co-workers. The same is true going to the in-laws or even our own families for holiday dinners.
Can’t you just hear your mother-in-law saying, “Is that a chip on your tooth? Wow. Who would have thought that would be so noticeable?”
And you definitely don’t want to have tetracycline stained teeth on display at these kinds of social throwdowns!
Fortunately, the team at Gentle Dental can place porcelain veneers on your teeth to effectively, beautifully cover any flaws, showing all the world only a perfect, bright white smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
The concept of dental veneers isn’t any different than furniture from the Paramus Ikea. There, you can find many a dresser or coffee table made from lesser-quality wood. But these pieces are covered by a thin layer of higher quality wood, giving the piece a more expensive appearance.
For your teeth, porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells placed over the front of your natural teeth to alter the tooth position, shape, size, and color. Veneers provide an aesthetic solution to various tooth imperfections. At Gentle Dental, we only use porcelain for our veneers because its appearance closely resembles that of natural tooth enamel.
Veneers are the ultimate restoration for:
- Revitalizing the surface of a tooth
- Concealing chips
- Covering badly stained, discolored teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Masking alignment problems
- Covering cracks or wear
- Providing an alternative to orthodontic work
They are only cosmetic
It’s important to note that porcelain veneers are only a cosmetic solution and are applied atop healthy teeth. Issues such as decay or gum disease must be taken care of before veneers are applied. Veneers simply cover cosmetic problems.
Want to show everyone a perfect smile at upcoming holiday parties? You have time to come in to Gentle Dental and have some porcelain veneers cover the cosmetic flaws in your smile. Call us at (732) 549-5660 to schedule a consultation.
