When chips, breaks, cracks, or discoloration affect your smile and the way you express yourself, it's time to see how Ridgewood Dental Associates can help. The porcelain veneers provided at our Ridgewood office give patients a chance to cover the cosmetic flaws in their teeth and restore their confidence. By adhering to the front surfaces of slightly damaged teeth, porcelain veneers can mask minor cosmetic flaws, providing a uniform appearance.
Drs. Jin Ha Joung, Min-Hee Cho, Mark Samani, and Miles Lazerwitz customize treatments based on a patient's needs. This helps ensure that porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or any other cosmetic dentistry treatment is personalized and able to significantly improve the appearance of his or her smile. Ridgewood Dental Associates is conveniently located for patients in New Jersey and Bergen County, so contact us today to schedule a consultation.
Understanding the Procedure
At Ridgewood Dental Associates, we are dedicated to keeping our patients informed and prepared for their treatments. The first step toward your new and improved smile will be a comprehensive consultation and examination. We will be honest and straightforward with you about your oral condition and the courses of action we suggest you take. We will be thorough in our diagnosis and meticulous in order to find the best solution to your needs.
Typically, our Ridgewood porcelain veneers patients can expect a 2-visit treatment plan. During the first visit, we will prepare your affected teeth by removing some of the natural enamel, making room for the veneers. An impression of your prepared teeth will be taken and sent to our elite-level dental laboratory, where your veneers will be carefully sculpted. The color of your smile will be carefully matched and reflected in the color of your porcelain veneers.
Once the laboratory has completed its work on your veneers, they will be sent back to our Ridgewood office in time for the second visit. During this appointment, we will use durable dental cement to attach the porcelain veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth. In just two appointments, you will have undergone a complete dental makeover.
Veneers vs. Bonding
Although dental bonding has been a popular treatment in cosmetic dentistry in the past, the porcelain veneers we provide at Ridgewood Dental Associates far surpass it. A bonding procedure involves molding and shaping the front of the tooth with natural-looking material. One benefit to this option is that bonding does not require enamel removal. However, porcelain veneers have been recorded as more attractive, more durable, and longer lasting. Your initial consultation will help us determine which treatment is right for you.
