Show Off a Stunning Smile
At the Center for Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry, we understand that the appearance of a patient’s teeth is just as important to them as the health of their mouth. Chips, stains, or misalignment of the teeth can detract from a smile, leading patients to feel self-conscious about their looks. Our skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Bixby, offers porcelain veneers to patients who visit our Red Bank, New Jersey practice as a way to combat these aesthetic flaws. If dental imperfections are holding you back, contact our practice today to learn how porcelain veneers can improve your smile.
Porcelain veneers are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments available because they can effectively mask several flaws in the smile, including cracks, stains, overlapping, or uneven spacing. They can also be used to alter the shape of the teeth, making them appear longer or shorter. Veneers are thin pieces of ceramic that are placed on top of the teeth to create an unblemished look. At our dental practice in Red Bank, we feature IPS Empress® porcelain veneers, which are made of pressed porcelain that has been proven stronger and more durable than layered counterparts. Porcelain veneers are custom-made for each individual to meet their specific cosmetic needs.
As a practiced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Bixby is skilled in the placement of porcelain veneers and is able to achieve natural-looking results for each of his patients. The process of placing porcelain veneers is straightforward and takes place over the course of two office visits. During the first visit, Dr. Bixby will examine your mouth and take impressions of the current position of your teeth. He will then send these impressions to a dental lab, which will craft the veneers according to exact specifications. Once the porcelain veneers have been crafted, usually in about two weeks, you will return to the office to have them placed. Dr. Bixby will remove a thin layer of enamel from the teeth to make room for the veneers. Then, using special cement, he will bond the veneer to your teeth. Using his keen aesthetic eye, Dr. Bixby can make changes to the shading and shape of the veneer in order to produce a seamless result.
Porcelain veneers are an effective treatment option for patients who wish to dramatically improve the appearance of their smiles. This versatile dental treatment can be used to conceal a number of cosmetic flaws while appearing remarkably natural. The ceramic material accurately mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. In addition to being visually appealing, porcelain veneers are durable and long-lasting. Although porcelain veneers are placed in just two easy office visits, they can last up to 15 years when cared for properly. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, porcelain veneers can help patients feel good about their smiles once again.
