Smiling not only makes us look younger and more attractive but it has a lot of health benefits like boosting our immune system, lowering our blood pressure and releasing endorphins that naturally make us feel good as well. If that’s the case, why are there still those who have a hard time smiling to the point that they can be mistaken for being grouchy?
Perhaps they are one of so many people out there who suffer from having either discolored or broken teeth and are therefore embarrassed to display them. Are you one of these people who have held back many a smile, or worse, avoided social activities altogether for fear of staring eyes or hurtful remarks from insensitive folks?
Fear no more because Lincroft dentist Dr. Mitchel Friedman has the answer to all your problems. Dr. Friedman offers veneers in his Newman Springs Dental Care clinic in New Jersey to correct those imperfections, including color, shape, and form, all of which can be improved by either composite or porcelain veneers.
Composite veneers can be done in just a single session. They are minimally invasive and pocket-friendly and should there be an accidental damage to the veneer, it can be easily repaired without having to replace the entire veneer. As long as your teeth are healthy and strong enough for the resin-based composite veneer to bond to, you can walk out of the clinic the same day with an improved, glowing smile.
For just a couple more appointments, the more durable porcelain veneers can be fabricated for you. Besides the strength, porcelain veneers are also stain-resistant, and these two qualities combined with the natural-looking properties of porcelain make for a wise choice for a long-lasting cosmetic dental treatment.
The decision as to which between composite or porcelain veneers can be easily made after Dr. Friedman had carefully evaluated your teeth to see which one will best work for you. Before doing the veneers, he will first treat any decayed teeth you may have before proceeding with taking impressions of your teeth, trimming the tooth enamel for placing the veneer, etc.
