Veneers are thin shells that are custom made to cover the front of your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. These shells can be used to improve the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth. Dr. Jorge Bastidas may recommend dental veneers in Paterson, New Jersey, to fix the following smile flaws:
- Discolored teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
Our dentist is proud to provide Lumineers®, a special type of veneers, at Comfort Dental Care. Lumineers are about as thin as a contact lens, so they are applied seamlessly over your teeth with little to no preparation to the tooth structure. The placement of Lumineers produces a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
Before placing a veneer, our dentist will discuss your smile goals with you and examine the current state of your smile. Our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel to prepare your tooth for a veneer. This allows room in your smile for the veneer. Next, an impression will be made of the tooth so the veneer can be constructed. When the veneer is ready, our dentist will place it on your tooth to check the fit and color. Any needed alterations will be made and then our dentist will clean, polish, and etch your tooth. This ensures a strong bonding process. A special cement and light are used to bond the veneer to your tooth. After removing any excess cement, our dentist will evaluate your bite and make any necessary final adjustments.
