Much like a Bruce Springsteen song, summer has arrived to New Jersey.

But is your smile ready for the summer heat? Think about it. All summer, you’ll be doing fun things with your friends and family. The camera will surely come out at some point. Will you smile and proudly display your teeth? Or are you ashamed of your smile?

At Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ, we don’t want any of our patients to be ashamed of their smile. So we’re proud to offer both porcelain veneers and composite veneers to makeover and transform your smile into a work of an art. Our cosmetic dentistry patients love veneers and here’s six reasons why:

Reason #1: A Veneer Can Transform a Misshapen Tooth

Sometimes a stubborn tooth simply doesn’t match your other teeth. It might be slightly smaller than your other teeth or otherwise oddly shaped. Luckily, we can apply a single dental veneer to cover your misshapen tooth. Our dental veneers are perfectly matched to the appearance of your other natural teeth, so no one will know that’s it’s not your natural tooth!

Reason #2: A Veneer Can Repair a Cracked or Chipped Tooth

Sometimes minor flaws like chipped or cracked teeth can make you look silly. The chips and cracks can also get worse and endanger the life of the tooth. Dental veneers are an excellent and fast option to repair a chipped or cracked tooth. We simply place single veneer over the chipped or cracked tooth, both improving its appearance and strengthening it.

Reason #3: Veneers Can Close Embarrassing Gaps Between Your Teeth

Do you have an embarrassing gap between two of your teeth? Maybe you’ve thought that adult braces are your only hope, yet it seems silly to undergo arduous orthodontic treatment simply to close a small gap. At Newman Springs Dental Care, we can place dental veneers to reshape the size of your teeth and close that embarrassing gap. No braces needed!

Reason #4: Veneers Are an Alternative to Adult Braces

Veneers can do more than just close gaps between your teeth. In fact some dentists even refer to veneers as instant orthodontics. Although veneers cannot correct issues with your bite or severely crooked teeth, we can actually place a full-set of veneers to cover your smile. That’s a quick and pain-free alternative to adult braces!

Reason #5: Veneers Can Cover Severely Discolored Teeth

Your teeth can become discolored to the point that they no longer respond to professionally whitening. This can happen due to your genetic background or due to certain medications you may be taking. Either way, veneers are an option to instantly whiten your teeth. We can apply a full-set of veneers to give you a new, incredibly white smile.

Reason #6: Veneers Can Quickly Makeover Your Smile

At Newman Springs Dental Care in Lincroft, NJ, we offer both porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Some patients prefer the speed and convenience of composite veneers, while other patients opt for the durability of porcelain veneers.

If you select composite veneers, we can generally apply them in a single appointment. Unlike porcelain veneers, composite veneers don’t require the enamel of your teeth to be reduced to make room for the veneers. That means a quick and completely pain-free smile makeover.

Porcelain veneers take a few appointments, but tend to be more durable than composite veneers. In your first appointment, we prepare your teeth to receive the veneers by removing some enamel from the front of your teeth. Your teeth are then fitted with temporary veneers while your permanent veneers are crafted. Once your porcelain veneers are finished, you return to our office and we bond them to your teeth.
