What are dental veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that are used to cover the front side of the teeth. Dr. Madalina Iorgulescu may recommend veneers in Summit, New Jersey, if your smile has aesthetic flaws that you would like to correct. Improving the appearance of your smile can increase your confidence and self-esteem.

Can dental veneers help my smile?
There are a number of smile flaws that dental veneers are used to correct, including:

– Discolored teeth
– Worn down teeth
– Misshapen teeth
– Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
– Gapped teeth

What are the benefits of veneers?
Dental veneers are made to look like your natural teeth. Dental veneers can restore the beauty of worn down or chipped teeth. Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth that are slightly crooked or irregularly shaped. Dental veneers can close small gaps in your smile. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, so they will keep their beautiful color.

Do dental veneers require special care?
Our prosthodontist may recommend that you avoid foods and beverages that may stain your dental veneers, including red wine, tea, and coffee. This is just a precaution, as veneers resist stains. Dental veneers do not require any special care. You can continue to brush, floss, and use mouthwash as normal.

How long do veneers last?
Veneers usually last between 5 to 10 years. At that point, the veneers can be replaced by our prosthodontist.
