Porcelain veneers in Hightstown are great for improving the look of your teeth if you are not satisfied with how some of them look regarding size, shape, color, or spacing. At East Windsor Dental Arts, we proudly use porcelain not only for veneers but for other restorations. That’s because we want you to reap the benefits of all it has to offer. Porcelain is long-lasting, tooth-colored, and resistant to stains.
Veneers perform a function that is not dissimilar from crowns, except that instead of going on top of the tooth, our veneers in Hightstown are placed in front of teeth. Their job is to cover up those imperfections that have you feeling self-conscious about your smile. What are we referring to specifically? Chipped or cracked teeth, crooked or discolored teeth, misshapen or poorly-sized teeth, or gaps between teeth that are too wide. Is that all? No, but those are common examples. Our veneers in Hightstown can be used for many purposes. All it takes is for our cosmetic dentist to take impressions and then send them off to the dental lab. When your veneers have been made, you will return to our office so that they can fitted for both appearance and comfort. You will be the final judge, of course. When you are satisfied with the result, the veneers will be bonded to your teeth. Doing so means that a thin layer of your tooth material will be filed off of the front of those teeth getting the veneers. This ensures that they do not protrude and spoil the look of your smile.
So whether you want our veneers in Hightstown, a crown, or you simply need a filling for a cavity, you can get a lot out of porcelain. Don’t settle for a smile that is less than what you would like for even one day longer. Call us now and set up a consultation.
East Windsor teeth whitening
Do you like what you see when you look at your teeth in the mirror? If you’re seeing stains, discoloration, yellow, or even brown, you don’t have to just settle for it. Here at East Windsor Dental Arts, we have two excellent ways to combat the problem. Teeth whitening is very popular today and with good reason. Everyone wants a brighter smile. You can either choose our East Windsor teeth whitening done here at our office, or opt for our take-home version and do it on your own. Either way, there is one common aspect of both: you’re going to be very happy with the color of your teeth.
Personal habits are largely responsible for your loss of whiteness. Foods that lead to discoloration include berries, soy sauce, and berries. Drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and cola are also culprits. And perhaps the most obvious one is tobacco, either from smoking or smokeless use. Even tetracycline and some other prescription drugs can discolor teeth. The natural aging process plays a role, too. Tooth enamel wears down as you get older, revealing the duller looking tissue beneath. What’s less important than why it happened, is what we can do about it with our East Windsor teeth whitening.
You have probably seen products on the shelves of supermarkets and drug stores that promise whitening. Most of them are more appropriate for maintenance than for an initial whitening. Also, they may contain abrasive ingredients, which are effective for removing stains but can damage your tooth enamel. For safe, quick, and impressive results, go for our East Windsor teeth whitening instead. The one we do in our office is of a higher concentration, giving you the outcome you’re wanting usually after just one session. The one you use at home takes a little longer, but in just a few days you will notice the difference. The precise amount of time needed depends on how discolored your teeth are when you start, and how white you want them to become. With our take-home whitening, we’ll make sure you know how to use it, and it’s very easy.
