If you’re not happy with your smile, modern dentistry can work wonders to improve it. A new smile may even change your life.  

Happiness from the outside in

Do you know that smiling can actually make you happier? Studies show that the simple act of smiling can improve your mood because it releases endorphins that make you feel good. A natural, open smile can also boost your self-confidence.

Unfortunately, many people feel embarrassed about their smile because of misshapen, discolored, or gapped teeth. Hiding your smile can lead to lower self-esteem and less self-confidence.

Transforming your smile

If you have badly stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth, or if you have what you consider to be an unsightly gap between your front teeth, help is available. Modern dental technology can give your whole smile a makeover with porcelain veneers.

When it comes to improving the appearance of your teeth, veneers provide one of the most common and least complicated solutions in cosmetic dentistry today. They can transform a mouthful of yellow, brown, or gray teeth into dazzling white. If you have misshapen, crooked, or uneven teeth, veneers can give you a smile that’s beautiful, smooth, and even.

How veneers work

Veneers are wafer-thin sheets made of porcelain or a resin composite that fit over the front and sides of your teeth to alter their color, shape, and size.

Our experienced, LVI trained cosmetic dentist, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb, can provide you with the highest quality veneers on the market. First, we will take impressions of the teeth you want to change and sends them to a lab. Then, we remove a very thin layer of enamel from the affected teeth and give you temporary covers while your permanent veneers are being made. When the veneers come back from the lab, Dr. Patti removes the temporary veneers and affixes the new ones, making adjustments as needed to ensure a perfect fit and a gleaming smile.

Why porcelain veneers are the best choice

Veneers can be made from a composite, tooth-colored resin, but at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we use porcelain veneers because of their strength, durability, and natural appearance. They have a number of advantages over composites; porcelain veneers are:

Veneers are a relatively quick and easy solution for a number of cosmetic dental concerns; plus, the procedure is pain-free. Just wait until you see that bright, vibrant smile staring back at you in the mirror.
