For most patients, if you have fairly aligned teeth and you are just looking at transforming it to have a better smile, then there's definitely an option for you. With veneers, it is the most conservative way, usually painless. If I had to say how a veneer is, it's very thin, something like a business card, as thin as a business card or a fingernail, that goes over your existing tooth. It is bonded on or it is cemented onto your tooth structure, your existing tooth structure, thereby enhancing what you have, and if you're a candidate for it – usually most people are as long as your bite is okay and you don't have any gum disease – it is a great option to enhance what God's given you.

Dental Veneers Explained
Dental veneer are thin pieces of tooth-colored material that are bonded to the front of teeth and used to improve their appearance.
Because they completely cover the visible portion of your teeth, veneers are an incredibly versatile cosmetic dentistry option that can be used to conceal:
- Worn-down teeth
- Teeth that appear slightly crooked
- Small gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
Many of our patients even choose to have veneers placed on all of their teeth that show while smiling for a dramatic smile makeover.Dr. Mitchel Friedman on Dental Veneers Read Transcript
A dental veneer is like a false fingernail. Your fingernail is healthy. It's just not looking as nice as it could. So what a dental veneer does is it actually goes over the top of the tooth, and sometimes it can be as thin as a business card. Sometimes you don't even need to shape up the teeth, but usually you need to shape up the teeth a little bit to get them aligned enough to be able to get the best result that's possible.
What's terrific is with the Smile Vision on the computer, we can take a photograph of your mouth, of your smile, and show you what it would look like with a cosmetic improvement like dental veneers.
What's great about dental veneers is it's very conservative, because it can be as thick as a business card. What that means in most cases is very little drilling, if any, and it can be placed right over the healthy tooth enamel. It's very, very thin, and it can be made to look just like your smile. In fact, I have veneers.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Unlike composite dental veneer, porcelain dental veneer require multiple visits for placement. During an initial consultation, one of our talented Lincroft, NJ dental team will determine if veneers are a good dental option for you.
If you choose to get porcelain dental veneers, we will:
- Carefully plan your treatment
- Numb the area for optimum comfort
- Remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for your veneers
- Bond temporary dental veneers in place
After a short period, you’ll return to our Lincroft, NJ dental office so we can remove the temporaries and quickly bond your permanent custom dental veneer in place. You’ll walk out with a gorgeous smile.
Compared to composite, porcelain dental veneers are stronger and more resistant to chips, cracks, and other forms of damage. Porcelain dental veneers are also slightly translucent like your natural teeth for a convincing look.
Composite Dental Veneers
Composite dental veneer are made of synthetic material that is color-matched to your natural teeth. The biggest advantage of composite dental veneer is their short treatment time. You’ll come to our dental office in the morning and leave the same day with a beautiful, brand new smile.
