Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers in New Jersey

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers can help improve the color, shape, and size of your smile, and they can also be used to close spaces between teeth.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Permanent veneers are an excellent option for individuals who want to improve the appearance of their smile but do not want to undergo extensive dental work. They are an ideal solution for correcting several dental concerns and transforming a smile. They offer many benefits, including:

Durability

They are very durable and long-lasting, and they can resist staining and discoloration better than natural tooth enamel. However, a dental veneer is not indestructible and can be damaged if you bite your nails or chew on hard objects.

They Look Like Your Natural Teeth

Veneers are custom-made and color-matched to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. They will look very natural and blend in well with your existing teeth.

Whiten Your Smile

Veneers can be used to brighten the color of your teeth. If you have stained or discolored teeth, veneers can give you a whiter, brighter smile.

Reshape Your Teeth

They can also change the shape and size of your teeth, making them look longer, wider, or narrower. They can close gaps between teeth, improve the alignment of your crooked teeth, and repair chipped teeth, cracks, and worn tooth enamel.

Porcelain vs. Composite Veneers

Porcelain dental veneers and composite veneers are two popular veneers used in cosmetic dentistry. However, they both have significant differences that set them apart.

  • Porcelain veneers are made from a thin layer of porcelain bonded to the front of the teeth. Composite veneers are made from a tooth-colored composite material bonded to the front of the teeth.
  • Porcelain veneers treatment is more expensive than composite veneers, but they can last for 10 to 15 years, while composite veneers usually need to be replaced after 5 to 7 years.
  • Porcelain is less likely to stain than composite veneers and is more durable and realistic-looking.

Ultimately, the decision between porcelain and composite veneers depends on the individual’s budget and desired results.

Veneers FAQs

The cost of custom veneers varies depending on the number of teeth being treated and the type of veneers you choose. In general, porcelain veneers cost $1,000 – $2000 per tooth.
Porcelain veneers can be color-matched to match your surrounding natural teeth. We recommend getting a professional teeth whitening treatment before you get your veneers so that they can all be at your desired level of whiteness.
Porcelain veneers are less likely to stain than natural teeth or composite veneers. However, it is still possible for them to become stained over time. If you want to keep your veneers looking their best, we recommend avoiding dark-colored foods and drinks and using a whitening toothpaste.
Traditional porcelain veneers are considered a permanent treatment because it does require tooth preparation, and your enamel must be removed to place them. However, they can be removed if necessary.
Porcelain veneers are usually considered a cosmetic procedure and are not typically covered by dental insurance. We recommend talking to your insurance provider before treatment to confirm coverage. We also offer various payment options to help make porcelain veneers more affordable.
