FAQS about porcelain veneers in Toms River

What can porcelain veneers do for my smile? These shells of high-grade ceramic can do a lot for your smile. They can cover chips, disguise stains, span small gaps, lengthen short teeth and more. If your teeth are basically healthy, laminates will beautify them and make them more resilient, too.

Is the treatment complex? At Signature Smiles, Dr. LaFalce offers single-visit porcelain veneers created by sophisticated CEREC technology. From consultation, examination and enamel resurfacing to digital impressions, veneer creation and placement, your entire cosmetic treatment takes a single visit.

Do porcelain veneers hurt? You may need a bit of local anesthetic as Dr. LaFalce removes some enamel from your teeth. This reduction allows for proper veneer fit and for your teeth to bite precisely and comfortably after she installs the laminates. Afterwards, your teeth and gums may be a little sensitive, but this will not last.

How long will my new smile last? Veneers should last 10 years or more. The bonding adhesive is exceptionally strong. However, it is important to avoid the extreme stresses of bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding) and hard foods such as taffy. Veneers are stain resistant, but natural teeth are not. So, watch how many darkly pigmented foods and beverages you consume so your teeth don't darken in comparison to your veneers.

How do I care for my porcelain veneers? Brush two times a day, and floss daily, says the American Dental Association (ADA). Veneers cannot decay, but plaque and bacteria can build-up at the gum line and around veneer margins. Also, get your usual cleanings and check-ups at Signature Smiles.
