Dental Veneers

Description

A veneer is a porcelain restoration that is used to cover the front of one or more teeth. At the Center for Advanced Dentistry in Red Bank, Dr. Bixby uses veneers to cover up stained or chipped teeth. Veneers are a more conservative option than crowns because they don't require as much alteration to the natural tooth structure.

A veneer is a porcelain restoration that tries to mimic the color and shape of enamel. It's different than bonding. Where bonding would be a composite, like a plastic filling material, this is a glass or a porcelain which is laboratory fabricated. And you can really use the talents of the lab to make beautiful, strong, long-lasting restorations. Patients that would do well with veneers are ones that have some discolorations or some chipping. Veneer could be a very good restoration for them where you can change the color, the shape, the size of the teeth with minimal impact to the tooth structure. So when looking for a dentist to do veneers for you, you should look at their before and after pictures, like some of the things that they've been able to do for patients. The benefit of veneers is that you can really change the shape and the color and the size of the teeth very accurately. And they're strong. And you can do that with a minimal amount of preparation. Where with a crown, you would have to take more tooth structure away. With a veneer, you can be more conservative. We can take a situation where they're unhappy with their teeth. And then they, you know, get very happy when they're all done.
