Do you find yourself going to great lengths to hide your smile? If you cover your mouth when you laugh or duck when someone takes a picture, why not improve the appearance of your smile? Many people assume transforming their smile will require multiple procedures and office visits. With porcelain veneers, your Livingston NJ dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, can completely transform your smile. How Do Porcelain Veneers Work? Veneers are very thin shells of dental porcelain. After preparing the surface of your teeth, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will take an impression. Our in-house dental lab will fabricate your new veneers using the impression. Once completed, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will check the fit of the veneers and then place them using a powerful bonding agent. Veneers can be shaded to blend seamlessly with your smile. Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom may recommend porcelain veneers to address a number of common dental imperfections, including: · Correcting the appearance of misalignment · Masking permanent teeth stains · Repairing cracked, chipped, or pitted teeth · Closing gaps between teeth · Reshaping malformed or damaged teeth Brighten Your Smile Before Receiving Veneers In order to ensure a gorgeous smile, many people elect to have their teeth whitened prior to receiving the veneers. After brightening your smile with our in-office procedure, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will match the veneers to your newly whitened smile. Zoom! Whitening will involve placing a protective covering on the lips and gums. Next, the bleaching gel will be applied to the teeth. Using a special light, the whitening ingredients will be activated.
