The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

A recent study by Kelton Research showed, people who whitened their teeth improved their likelihood of being hired during a job interview and experienced an elevated level of confidence. Livingston cosmetic dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, understand the importance of a beautiful smile. They also understand that over time, teeth become stained and damaged. This doesn’t mean that the bright, shining smile of your youth is beyond reach. At Silverstrom Dental Group, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom offer patients an innovative cosmetic procedure for restoring and permanently whitening teeth.

Cosmetic Repair

Porcelain veneers consist of thin wafers of hand crafted dental porcelain. The veneers are placed on the front teeth, to alter a person’s appearance moderately or dramatically depending on their preference. Durable and long-lasting, with the proper care, porcelain veneers offer decades of stain-resistant tooth restoration. Veneers correct a variety of esthetic issues, including:

·         Permanent stains

·         Gaps between teeth

·         Misaligned teeth

·         Cracks or chips in teeth

·         Short teeth

·         Malformed teeth

Placing Porcelain Veneers

The process of placing porcelain veneers is usually completed in two short visits. Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will meet with the patient for an initial examination and to decide if porcelain veneers are the best treatment option. Next, the surface of the teeth will be prepared by removing a minuscule layer of enamel to make room for the new veneers. Your Livingston cosmetic dentists will then take an impression of your teeth.

Using the impression, and Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom's exact specifications, an expert ceramist will craft your custom-made veneers. The porcelain veneers will be shaded to match your smile, and even exhibit a translucent quality, similar to natural tooth enamel. At your next appointment, your new veneers will be placed. After ensuring the veneers are a perfect fit, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will attach them with a powerful bonding agent. When you step out of our office, your smile will be brighter and completely renewed.
