Why Choose NU Dental of Barnegat for Veneers?

What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are one of the most popular and effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. They’re essentially thin porcelain shells that Dr. G fits over the front surfaces of the teeth that are the most prominent in your smile. Because they cover the entire visible section of the teeth, all of its aesthetic imperfections – including chips, cracks, discoloration, and even minor misalignment – instantly disappear. Even better, each veneer is 100% customized to suit your unique needs, so you won’t have to worry about your results looking unnatural.

The Process of Getting Veneers

After your consultation, during which Dr. G discusses the specific improvements you’d like to make to your smile, the veneers process usually takes only two appointments. First, we “prep” your teeth for veneers by shaving off an extremely thin layer of enamel (about as thick as a contact lens). Without this step, your veneers would look and feel bulky compared to your other teeth. Next, we take impressions of your teeth, which the dental lab technicians will use to craft your veneers to perfection.

While they’re busy creating your veneers, we can place a set of temporary veneers to let you take your new grin for a test run. A few weeks later, you’ll return for your second appointment, where we’ll swap your temporaries for your final veneers. Once we make any last-minute adjustments and you’re satisfied with the results, we bond your veneers to your teeth.

Veneers FAQs

Below are some of the most frequent questions we get about veneers as well as our responses. If you have other concerns, feel free to ask during your consultation with us!

Does Getting Veneers Hurt?

Even though we won’t take away all your enamel, we remove about 0.5 mm to make room for the veneers. Before we begin, we will numb the area with a local anesthetic, which means that you shouldn’t feel any pain while we work. After your appointment, when the anesthetic wears off and while you have the temporary veneers, you may have some sensitivity, but when you receive your custom veneers, any discomfort should subside soon.

Do I Have to Get Putty Impressions Taken for Veneers?

If you’ve ever received dental restorations or appliances in the past, you may have experienced the unpleasantness of traditional impressions. A goopy material is pressed against your upper and lower teeth until it hardens, which many find uncomfortable. At Nu Dental Barnegat, we have a digital impression system. A small device easily fits in your mouth, digitally scans, and accurately measures the inside within minutes, sparing you from any discomfort.

What Can I Do to Make My Veneers Last as Long as Possible?

In addition to the basic maintenance of brushing, flossing, and coming to our office for checkups and cleanings, you can make smart decisions in your lifestyle to preserve your veneers. For instance, you can be more selective about what you eat and drink. Although veneers cannot decay, the teeth underneath are still susceptible to cavities, which means you should be careful about sugary, starchy, and acidic foods and beverages. You can also be more aware of how much deeply pigmented substances you consume like coffee, tea, soy sauce, wine, dark soda, and tomato sauce, which can eventually stain your veneers. Finally, avoid chewing on ice, pens, pencils, or other hard substances that could damage your perfect smile.

Are Veneers Covered by Dental Insurance?

With only a few exceptions, dental insurance plans generally don’t cover cosmetic treatments, including veneers. This means you’ll be responsible for paying the entire cost. However, at Nu Dental Barnegat, we have several methods of making this expense less burdensome. If you are getting veneers as part of a smile makeover, your consultation is complimentary! Or, if you don’t have dental insurance, you can take advantage of our in-house membership plan, offering you a 15 percent discount on veneers as well as free consultations. Ultimately, if the cost of treatment is still higher than you want to pay all at once, you can finance the cost with CareCredit, breaking up the total into easier monthly payments.
