A smile is the one language that is understood around the world. Just a smile can say so much: “Hello.” “Nice to see you.” “Have a good day.” However, if you have teeth that you prefer to hide, then your smile may not be able to say much. Porcelain veneers can repair a number of dental flaws that require treatment. With porcelain veneers, Dr. John A. Carollo has returned smiles to the faces of many patients in Florham Park, NJ, and the surrounding areas.
Over the years, teeth can become unattractive for a number of reasons:
- Chips and cracks, whether due to normal wear and tear or traumatic injury
- Severe discoloration that can be genetic, but more than likely is caused by consuming coffee, red wine, colas, carrots and other deeply colored foods and beverages
- Uneven teeth, whether from teeth grinding or daily wear and tear
- Misaligned teeth or teeth with uneven spacing that may worsen with age
Porcelain Veneers to the Rescue
Porcelain veneers, which are micro-thin layers of dental porcelain that are cemented to your existing teeth, can repair all of these imperfections. First, you and Dr. Carollo will meet to discuss your goals. He will perform a thorough exam and begin the process of designing your customized veneers. To apply the veneers, he’ll prep your teeth and then use a special dental bonding material to secure the porcelain veneers to your teeth. Then, if necessary, he will slightly shape and trim the veneers so they look completely natural.
Porcelain veneers are actually more resistant to staining than natural teeth. However, they are susceptible to chips and cracks, so you may need to avoid biting on hard foods, such as nuts or bones. But with daily brushing and flossing, and regular checkups with Dr. Carollo, your porcelain veneers will have you speaking the universal language of “Smile!” for many years.
