Veneers and Cosmetic Dentistry

Get a new smile

Sometimes choosing the best cosmetic dental treatment may seem a little overwhelming.  In many cases, a combination of different treatments is an effective way to transform the appearance of your entire smile.

Dental Veneers in Westfield, New Jersey

Porcelain veneers provide one of the most dramatic effects when it comes to making over your smile.  Whether it’s for one tooth or all of your front teeth, veneers can improve the appearance of:

      • Misshapen, broken or chipped teeth
      • Discolored or stained teeth
      • Crooked teeth
      • Spaces between teeth
      • Short, or narrow teeth

The treatment method for porcelain veneers is easy and non-invasive. Teeth may require no or only slight preparation prior to permanently bonding the veneer over the front of the tooth. By choosing veneers, you can instantly have a white, straight, beautiful smile in just a short amount of time.

Your first veneer appointment will be a consultation with the Dr. Vasani to discuss what your needs and expectations are.  Our dental laboratory will then create a “wax up” that will enable you to see what your proposed veneer design will appear like on your teeth. You can even try it on!  After this try-in visit, your permanent veneers will be made based on any changes that you’ve requested. Once they are ready for delivery, the tooth is lightly conditioned and the veneers are bonded to your teeth in a single setting, instantly transforming your entire smile!

Whitening

Whitening your teeth is another effective cosmetic treatment that is fairly affordable for Parkview Dental patients. Whitening is ideal for patients that have healthy teeth, that otherwise are pleasing in appearance. A high-grade peroxide solution is used in a custom made whitening tray, which naturally lifts deep internal stains from the tooth enamel over the period of several days. Some people may have more severe staining due to tetracycline, tobacco, coffee, tea or red wine. In-office laser teeth whitening can produce instant whitening results in just a single visit. Many people choose in-office whitening to avoid wearing trays at home, or for special occasions.

Bonding

Bonding with resin material can help correct minor discrepancies in tooth appearance, fill cavities or cover areas of the root where the gums have receded. The resin restoration is carefully matched to the rest of your teeth, so that the end result appears as if it were a natural part of your tooth. It is recommended that patients whiten their teeth prior to having bonding placed, if it’s ever something that they plan to do, because bonding material remains consistent in color.
