The secret to a celebrity-style smile may be in veneers. Veneers are thin, custom-made protection for your teeth that can brighten, whiten, and transform your smile. Because they look natural and are easy to care for, you can enjoy a celebrity smile sooner than you think.
At Dental Arts of Edgewater in Edgewater, New Jersey, Dr. Michael Moawad, DMD, keeps your teeth looking their best. In addition to routine dental care, we offer cosmetic dentistry, including constructing your dazzling smile with veneers.
What are veneers?
Veneers are made of either porcelain or a resin composite material. Both are natural-looking and durable, but the porcelain option is custom-made in a laboratory to fit over your teeth. The composites are applied right within our dental office.
Both look natural and feel comfortable, giving you a flawless smile. We can guide you through the right choice for you.
Who’s a good candidate for veneers?
Veneers can fix a range of dental problems. If you have stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth, veneers can hide these imperfections and create a uniform look that makes your smile dazzle.
More cost-effective than crowns, veneers are an excellent choice for those with a healthy mouth (no cavities or gum disease).
What can you expect from the veneer process?
If you want a natural look, veneers can achieve that for you. The first step is a consultation to determine your goals and oral health. If we agree that veneers are a good solution for your goals, we may remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth so your veneers fit well.
In the case of porcelain veneers, we also take impressions of your teeth as we need to send them to the dental laboratory for creation. In terms of the composite veneers, we apply these in our office. We mix the resin and apply it directly to your teeth until we have the desired result.
Veneers are versatile and easy to maintain. You can brush, floss, and maintain regular dental check-ups to keep them looking their best. However, you do want to be careful and avoid tearing packages with your teeth or biting on hard objects. Veneers are also long-lasting. With proper care, they can last 10-15 years.
At Dental Arts of Edgewater, Dr. Moawad evaluates your teeth and oral health to advise if veneers are right for you. Call our office today or utilize our online scheduling tool to book an appointment.
