When the lights go down in a darkened movie theater and the screen brightens, you can guarantee that, unless it’s Pirates of the Caribbean, almost every smile will be dazzlingly white and exceptionally straight. In fact, our screen-rich environment has pushed actors and television personalities to a new smile standard.

But what most people don’t know is that a remarkable smile can be achieved with the expert application of razor-thin shells of porcelain known as dental veneers. If you’re dreaming of a new smile but fear it’s out of reach, the team at Randolph Dental Associates wants you to know that they offer a range of cosmetic treatments to revitalize your smile, including porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneers Fix Tooth Surface Flaws

Applying a dental veneer is like recovering a piece of furniture; the process conceals cosmetic problems beneath a brand-new layer that looks just like the original surface. These ultra-thin ceramic shells are designed to fit as part of a tooth’s front surface. Here are some of the issues dental veneers can correct:

  • Chipped and fractured teeth
  • Misshapen or undersized teeth
  • Gaps or spacing issues
  • Tooth staining or discoloration
  • Mild tooth misalignment

In many cases, dental veneers allow us to be strategic with their application, such that we may correct many issues, especially between teeth, with only a few restorations.

The Dental Veneer Procedure in Randolph, NJ

The first step in this cosmetic dental treatment is an exam and consultation to help decide if dental veneers are appropriate for you. Then, we create clean and precise digital impressions of your teeth and match their color. Our goal is to make your new veneer blend seamlessly with your smile.

Then, a specially chosen dental lab fabricates your veneers using the digital impression we provide. This process usually takes a couple of weeks. When your veneers are ready, Dr. Kaplan will adjust them for the best possible fit, then bond them securely to your prepared tooth surface.

Proper Dental Veneer Care

If you treat your veneers with care, they can last for years or longer. We recommend the following to lengthen their lifespan:

  • Brush and floss twice daily
  • Maintain six-month dental visits
  • Avoid teeth-grinding and wear a nightguard if you do
  • Wear a mouthguard when playing sports
  • Those salted caramels are delicious but could dislodge your veneers
