Toms River, NJ Veneers

 

If your teeth are worn and chipped, you may qualify for a wonderful cosmetic dentistry service: porcelain veneers. Customized shells of tooth-colored ceramic, veneers from Signature Smiles in Toms River provide the shape, sparkle and strength your smile needs. Your dentist, Dr. Carmela LaFalce, has all the details. 

Your best smile

You have healthy teeth and gums, but cosmetically, your smile needs help. Using innovative CEREC processes, Dr. LaFalce can create ultra-thin porcelain laminates to camouflage unsightly defects permanently. CEREC means Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. Right in the treatment room, she'll examine your teeth and gums, take digital impressions, and create and install beautiful veneers. It takes just one appointment to give you the smile you've always wanted.

But first...

You'll discuss how you wish your smile to improve. This consultation with your dentist forms an all-important foundation for your smile makeover, says the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. For example, are your teeth uneven in length? Do you have dark stains from tobacco or coffee? Are gaps and mild overlapping embarrassing you? Tell Dr. LaFalce your ideas, and together, you'll arrive at a wonderful treatment plan. She may even show you what your smile will look like after veneer placement.

Porcelain veneers are permanent

This cosmetic treatment requires some mild enamel resurfacing. As such, once you wear veneers, you always will. However, keep in mind that porcelain laminates usually last 10 to 15 years and longer when you take care of them. So, don't worry: you won't be constantly replacing your veneers. Brush, floss and see Dr. LaFalce for routine check-ups and cleanings.

Veneers are strong

For people who have small, oddly-shaped teeth or defects such as large chips or deep pits and craze lines, veneers strengthen smiles. However, substantial enamel loss, decay or root canal therapy require more extensive restorations: the porcelain crown.

Additionally, although veneers are durable, they cannot withstand hard foods, such as candy apples or sticky caramel. So, think carefully about what you put into your mouth, and your veneers will look great for years to come.
