Porcelain Veneers

At Red Bank Smiles, our skilled dental team uses state-of-the-art materials and techniques to perform cosmetic dental procedures such as porcelain veneers. A beautiful smile can give your confidence and oral health a boost, and we have seen firsthand how porcelain dental veneers have enhanced our patients’ smiles and their lives.

What Are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, natural-looking facings designed by master ceramists that cover one or more of your front teeth. They are used to correct imperfections, such as stains or discoloration, chips, cracks and irregular tooth size or shape. They also can be used to close gaps between teeth. They are designed to blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth and can significantly improve and enhance your smile. Durable and resistant to staining, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years or more.

The Veneer Procedure


Veneers usually require a few trips to the dentist. To determine whether veneers are right for you, our cosmetic dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, take X-rays, discuss the results you wish to achieve, and address any concerns you may have.

Before starting the procedure, we will use a shade guide to determine which color of porcelain most closely matches your other teeth. To prepare a tooth for a veneer, the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic if needed, and then a small amount of enamel will be removed from the tooth’s surface. Next, we will take precise impressions of your teeth. A master ceramicist will use these impressions to create custom-crafted veneers that fit perfectly and look like natural teeth. We will place temporary veneers to protect your teeth while your permanent veneers are being prepared.

At your next visit, your permanent veneers will be cemented. Before bonding permanent veneers, we will place them on your teeth to ensure a proper fit and color. They will be trimmed as needed, and your tooth (or teeth) will be cleaned, polished, and etched, which roughens the tooth’s surface to facilitate proper bonding. Your veneers then will be permanently cemented to your tooth. Any excess cement will be removed, and final adjustments will be made to make sure your bite is even and comfortable.
