How veneers can upgrade your smile

Veneers may be no thicker than a contact lens, but they can still dramatically change your smile for the better. Most often made of porcelain, these tooth-shaped shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement. Additionally, they don't require any extensive preparation or major changes to your teeth. In fact, only a small amount of tooth enamel may need to be removed to ensure a proper fit.

Veneers from our Hasbrouck Heights office may be a good choice if you are concerned about:

  • Minor Damage: Chips and shallow cracks may not alter the integrity of your teeth, but they can be unsightly. Veneers offer a simple solution that keeps damage out of sight.
  • Surface Issues: Tooth enamel isn't always perfectly smooth, as bumps, pits, and uneven surfaces can all draw unwanted attention to your smile. Fortunately, improving your tooth surface can be as easy as attaching a few veneers.
  • Discolored Teeth: Whether your discoloration occurred due to trauma, a dental issue or taking the antibiotic tetracycline as a child, veneers can improve the color of discolored teeth. Your veneers will be made to match the color of nearby teeth to ensure that the discoloration soon becomes a distant memory.
  • Irregularities: Veneers make crooked, twisted, pointed or oddly shaped teeth look perfectly uniform. They also offer a simple way to lengthen teeth that are a little too short.
  • Gaps: The restorations also make gaps between your teeth disappear. They're a good option if you have slight gaps. Larger gaps may require orthodontic treatment.
  • Stains: Would you like a whiter smile? Veneers can whiten your entire smile, are available in many shades of white and are stain-resistant.
