If you had the chance to hit the reset button on your smile, would you? For many people, the answer to that question is, “Yes!” without a moment’s hesitation. If you are one of those people, then speak to Dr. Bond or Dr. Ganfield about porcelain veneers in Newark. As you age, you’re bound to see changes in the appearance of your teeth. There may be permanent stains, chips, cracks, fractures or worn teeth. All of these can detract from the beauty of your smile and impact your self-confidence. Porcelain veneers can hide all of those imperfections so your smile looks perfect to you and others!

Why Choose White Clay Dental Associates for Porcelain Veneers?

Smile More with Porcelain Veneers

Among dentists, porcelain veneers have a nickname. They are often called “instant orthodontics” because they make quick work of dramatically changing a smile. In addition to correcting teeth that are structurally damaged, they can also improve the appearance of teeth with gaps between them or teeth that are slightly crooked. Porcelain veneers are a single cosmetic treatment that can correct a number of smile flaws at the same time.

Receiving Porcelain Veneers in Newark

The road to a new smile with veneers begins with a consultation. Our dentists want to work hand-in-hand with you to make sure you end up with the smile you have in mind and that looks natural on you. Your porcelain veneers will be individually designed to not only correct the appearance of a specific tooth, but to also look appropriate for the size and shape of your mouth, lips, and facial features.

Once you and Dr. Bond or Dr. Ganfield have settled on the overall look of your finished smile, we can get started on the mechanics of designing your veneers. We begin by taking a comprehensive collection of photographs, digital X-rays, and impressions of your teeth. With this information, your dentist is able to design veneers that will fit comfortably in your mouth.

Then, your teeth must be slightly altered in order to make room for the veneers. A very slim layer of enamel is filed away—about the same thickness as a veneer. Once this step is completed, we’ll give you a temporary set of veneers made of acrylic. These will not only protect your teeth, but also give you some time to adjust to the feeling of having something on your teeth all the time.

In a couple of weeks, you’ll return to White Clay Dental Associates to have your custom crafted porcelain veneers bonded in to place. Made of fine dental porcelain, your veneers will look natural and can last for 20 years or more with daily oral hygiene and regular dental checkups.

Veneers FAQs

Why Are Veneers Made of Porcelain?

If you’re thinking of a porcelain doll, which is very fragile, you may wonder why this material would be used for veneers. However, the kind of porcelain utilized for your teeth is actually extremely durable and more stain resistant than natural enamel, but it reflects light just like real teeth. As a result, these coverings look completely lifelike and last a long time!

How Many Veneers Will I Need?

Each case is unique, so you could need just one to eight veneers to cover your most visible teeth. Often, a smile looks more uniform when multiple teeth receive veneers simultaneously, but we won’t know what your best treatment plan is until we’ve examined you in person.

Does Getting Veneers Hurt?

The idea of having enamel removed, even a thin layer, may sound painful at first. However, before we make any alterations to your teeth, we will give you a local anesthetic, numbing your mouth. As a result, you can sit back comfortably while we work on preparing your teeth for perfection. When the anesthetic wears off and while you have your temporary veneers, you could experience some sensitivity, but when your custom veneers are attached, this should subside.

Do I Have to Get Goopy Impressions for Veneers?

Have you experienced the unpleasantness of putty impressions in the past? We don’t use them here! At White Clay Dental Associates, we take advantage of iTero digital impressions. Instead of messy, gag-inducing putty, we insert a small device in your mouth, which scans your upper and lower arches and takes other measurements of your mouth comfortably and accurately. Within minutes, a 3D image of your mouth is available on our screen. From this image, our dental lab will construct your custom veneers to match up perfectly with this impression.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

It is difficult to estimate the general cost of veneers because so many factors go into the calculation. For instance, the number of veneers you get will determine the cost as well as which teeth are receiving them. In fact, we won’t be able to tell you accurately how much your treatment will cost until we create a treatment plan. Once you know the price, our team can work with you to help make treatment affordable for you. Although dental insurance doesn’t typically cover veneers, there are other options to help you save. For instance, our in-house membership plan includes a 15 percent discount on this and other services. We also accept payment through CareCredit financing, which breaks up the cost into easy monthly payments.
