An unappealing smile can leave you feeling self-conscious throughout your day. The exact nature and severity of the imperfections will directly dictate the cosmetic dental treatments that Dr. Galina Zhukova recommends. For teeth with multiple imperfections, like deep stains, chips and discolored fillings, he will often recommend installing dental veneers.

These are essentially porcelain shells that are shaped to match the faces of your teeth. The porcelain material will appear to look just like natural tooth enamel, but it will have much less propensity for future stains. Once installed, the veneers will allow you to maintain a white and winning smile for a long time to come.

Your dentist will examine each tooth in your smile and take a few X-rays. It’s important to determine that there is enough healthy enamel on each tooth to anchor a dental veneer. If one or more teeth have insufficient enamel, or if they are compromised by tooth decay or old fillings, he might recommend restoring them with a porcelain dental crown.

A detailed impression will be made of each tooth in your smile. This impression will be sent to the dental lab where your porcelain dental veneers will be made.

When the dental veneers are ready, a member of our Paramus Dental & Implant Center staff will call you back in for a second appointment. During this appointment, your dentist will use a drill to remove a small amount of the enamel from each tooth. Then, the corresponding veneer will be cemented in place.

If the teeth in your smile are suffering from multiple imperfections, you should call Dr. Galina Zhukova at 201-518-9795 to see if you’re a good candidate for dental veneers in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.
