Veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment intended to improve the appearance of your teeth. By transforming chipped, cracked, discolored, or unusually shaped teeth, they allow you to have the smile you’ve always wanted.

Have you considered transforming your smile with veneers? Monroe Township, NJ dentist Dr. H.K. Virdee is skilled at creating beautiful smile makeovers that allow your true personality to shine through.

How Veneers Work

Each veneer is individually designed and crafted to serve a specific purpose. Whether you are troubled by a single cracked tooth or you want to revamp your entire smile, we will work with you to help you meet your goals.

Once you and Dr. Virdee agree that veneers are right for you, we’ll begin by removing a thin layer of your dental enamel. This allows the veneer to take the place of the enamel for a natural look.

We’ll take impressions of your teeth as well as photos and other imaging. All of this information, along with Dr. Virdee’s detailed instructions, will be sent to a trusted, high-quality dental lab where your veneers will be crafted. While your permanent veneers are being created, you’ll wear temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth and help you “test drive” your new restorations.

When your veneers are complete, we’ll ask you to return to our office. At this appointment, we’ll remove the temporary veneers and place your new, permanent veneers. You and Dr. Virdee will both check the restorations and the placement carefully to make sure that you are happy with your new smile.

Veneers fit right over the tops of your teeth like thin, porcelain shells, concealing an incredible array of common esthetic concerns. Most people who are seeking veneers are looking to correct:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Areas of discoloration
  • Short teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

With good home habits and a commitment to regular dental cleanings and check-ups, your veneers can last up to a decade.
