Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are ideal for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to aesthetic detail. The cosmetic dentistry team at Dr. Yeh and Associates places veneers routinely and designs each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other cosmetic dentistry options.
Typically, it takes two dental appointments to establish candidacy, treatment plan, prepare, and perform the veneers procedure.
Wanting a perfect smile isn’t enough to qualify for porcelain veneers. First, veneer candidates must have a healthy smile free of cavities, infections, and gum disease. If you have oral health concerns, you must address them before starting a cosmetic dentistry process to establish a sturdy foundation for brilliant veneers.
After agreeing on a treatment plan and shade matching the veneers to natural teeth, our cosmetic dentists prepare the smile by shaving away a slim portion of the natural enamel to ensure that the veneer fits perfectly.
Then, we create dental impressions of the prepared teeth. Next, we send these individualized impressions to our trusted dental laboratory for fabrication. While you wait for your customized restorations, we place temporary veneers to protect the enamel until the permanent ones are ready.
Once the porcelain veneers are created, we call patients back for fitting and bonding.

With proper care, veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Dr. Yeh and his team ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality ceramics and are bonded firmly in place. Dr. Yeh and Associates works with only the most reputable lab in the tri-state, Kuwata Pan Dent, whose trained ceramists create the most authentic-looking, durable veneers.
While veneers are durable but prone to chipping when exposed to blunt force (like natural teeth), however, there are ways to avoid accidental breakage and damage. First, refrain from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things that will prolong their life. Secondly, maintaining proper oral hygiene ensures that the dental structure beneath it stays healthy.
If accidental breakage or damage occurs, schedule an emergency dentistry appointment as soon as possible by calling (973) 338-9595.
