Saddle Brook Porcelain Veneers
The term “cosmetic dentist” is really a misnomer. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about improving the appearance of your smile through cosmetic-only procedures. Sure, improving the way your teeth and smile look is very important but almost very so-called cosmetic procedure also improves the health and longevity of your teeth and oral health. At EverSmile Dental our doctor offers patients a full range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental services including specialized services such as implant, laser, orthodontics, pediatric and sedation dentistry. Many of these services such as Saddle Brook porcelain veneers have both a cosmetic and restorative or preventative purpose.
Saddle Brook porcelain veneers is an example of a treatment that can be used as a cosmetic and restorative treatment at the same time. A veneer is a thin sheet of a durable material, usually porcelain that is placed over the front of the teeth. Our doctor uses veneers to treat teeth that have fine cracks or chips on the front, are misshaped, discolored or badly stained. The veneer covers the tooth and prevents small cracks or chips from getting larger or letting bacteria and debris in and decay the tooth. If a tooth is misshaped or a little too short the veneer will correct the problem. Veneers are a durable but conservative restoration, little or no tooth material is taken off the tooth to apply the veneer as is done with crowns. These uses of a veneer help protect the tooth while improving the appearance. Veneers can also be used to correct the color of the tooth or cover a stain and bring the color in line with that of the adjacent teeth. A series of veneers can be an effective, long-lasting method of whitening the teeth.
Even using Saddle Brook porcelain veneers as a method of whitening the teeth has more than just a cosmetic effect. By placing the veneers on the teeth to whiten them our doctor is also protecting the teeth with an extra layer of hard material that keeps debris away from the tooth’s enamel and helps guard against chips and cracks due to injury.
