Many patients received successful cosmetic dental treatments at Aesthetic Dental Center of Bergen County. The usual complaints were the misshaped, discolored, malpositioned teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is our passion. We are so happy to help our patients to be able to smile with confidence!
A dental veneer is a thin composite resin or porcelain shell that we apply to the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance and correct certain issues like color, size and shape. We may recommend dental veneers for a variety of aesthetic reasons, including discoloration, misalignment, gaps and chips.
A highly trained dental technician can form a porcelain veneer that is very strong and resembles the color of natural teeth. There is a somewhat smooth or glass-like finish to porcelain, which closely matches natural teeth. Porcelain is also a highly stain-resistant material, making it favorable for those who want to lighten the color of their teeth and not undergo periodic teeth whitening procedures.
As we mentioned before, dental veneers correct a number of problems with the teeth. One popular application of dental veneers is for teeth whitening when the patient has stained teeth due to drinking beverages like tea or coffee, or stains due to smoking.
Many patients also receive veneers to enhance the shape of their teeth, which may be misshapen or malformed. Others have misshapen teeth due to traumatic injury or genetics. Dental veneers offer a great solution to improve natural alignment and close any gaps between teeth.
In the case of a patient with a chipped tooth, when the issue is minor, we typically use bonding to correct the problem. But if the damage or chip is beyond that of a minor fix, we may recommend dental veneers to enhance the natural shape of the tooth.
We begin by meeting with you for a consultation. We will listen to your aesthetic goals and answer any remaining questions that you may have at this time. It may be necessary to take x-rays or form molds of your teeth. We will then develop an individualized treatment plan just for you and go over fees.
At your next appointment we prepare the tooth to receive a dental veneer. This may mean that the surface of the tooth must be reduced to make room for the veneer. We then affix the dental veneer using a special adhesive during the following appointment. A provisional (temporary) restoration is typically fabricated for you to wear in between the visits.
Now that you have received your dental veneers, you will want to make sure that they remain in pristine condition for as long as possible. Although porcelain is extremely stain resistant and will not decay, your porcelain veneers still require proper attention and regular care, just like your natural teeth.
Keep up with good oral habits at home by brushing at least twice a day using a good fluoride toothpaste, as well as flossing daily. It also helps to use a good mouthwash each day to reduce the odds of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
You also need to keep up with your regular dental examinations and cleanings. It is important that you have professional cleanings by our dental hygienist so that we can remove any plaque or tartar that may have accumulated on your teeth. Left undetected and untreated, this can lead to tooth decay that may require significant intervention in the future. Keeping up with your regular checkups also allows us to spot any problems before they become severe.

“I was seen a little earlier than my scheduled appointment so that was a plus. The dental office was immaculate! My tooth extraction was done in less than 5 minutes. I didn’t even realize it was out until he said ok all done!! Absolutely no pain, no pressure! The oral surgeon was brilliant! I’ll highly recommend this a million times!!”

“I chipped my tooth and needed a new sentient. I called the Ridgefield park office and spoke to a very friendly, professional receptionist and was able to get an appointment soon. The dentist did a beautiful job with my tooth. I would recommend this place 💯”

“Dr. Jennie Lee was very patient and so good with my 4-yr-old son. He was at ease and sat through the whole filling treatment without any difficulty. They were very accommodating to his needs and didn't give him any unnecessary treatment just to take your money. Highly recommend!! Staff is friendly as well.”
