Dental Veneers


Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are small appliances which can be attached to the front surfaces of your teeth for the purpose of improving their appearance. They are most often recommended for patients who have discolored teeth, or teeth which are cracked or otherwise damaged. They are sometimes also used to cover gaps between teeth, which can be an unsightly appearance for someone. In some cases, a single veneer is applied to improve the appearance of one tooth, but other patients opt to have six or even eight teeth covered by veneers. It will generally be the front teeth which veneers are applied to, since they are by far the most visible of your teeth.

Types of veneers in Basking Ridge

veneersThe most common type of dental veneers are those made out of porcelain, but they can be made of other materials as well. When applying traditional veneers, it will be necessary to grind down a certain amount of the tooth structure, so the veneer can be properly bonded to the tooth. The patient will generally be put under a local anesthetic during this grinding process, since it could otherwise be somewhat painful.There are other types of dental veneers which are known as no-prep veneers, where this type of preparation is not necessary. When no-prep veneers are being applied, any alteration to your teeth will be minimal, and there might not be any whatsoever. Rather than removing some of your tooth, it's only necessary to apply the veneer to the outer enamel.

This does not require any kind of anesthetic, because there's no discomfort felt by the patient. Veneers are much different than other oral appliances such as dental implants. Whereas dental implants replace an entire tooth, a veneer merely covers the surface of the tooth without having to remove it. Dental crowns will generally encase an entire tooth, whereas veneers only affect the front portion of the tooth which is visible to observers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are dental veneers a permanent solution?
A: Veneers will have to be replaced eventually, but with good care they can last for decades.

Q: Should dental veneers be brushed just like normal teeth?
A: Yes, they should, although you need to be gentle. If you also avoid foods which can stain them, they'll look great for years to come.

Q: What's the big advantage of using dental veneers?
A: The most noticeable difference after having dental veneers installed is that your appearance will be greatly improved, and your smile will be much more appealing.

Q: Will a dental veneer hide my discolored tooth?
A: Yes, and in fact this is one of the primary reasons why some people elect to have dental veneers installed. Teeth might easily become discolored over time, or you might have an accident which causes one or more teeth to become cracked or chipped. Dental veneers are an ideal solution for all these scenarios.

Q: My teeth have always been abnormally small, and it's very noticeable. Can dental veneers help me?
A: Yes, they can. When a veneer is fitted on to the front portion of your tooth, the visible component will be a normal-sized tooth which performs and looks completely natural.

I have strongly recommended this dental institution to anyone that would listen or in need of the best doctors around. They are the best I have ever been to, caring, personable, and they have done nothing short of a miracle with the work that had to be done, I doubt any other dental practices could have done for me what they have, and with such enthusiasm helping their patients any way they can, it does not feel as if you are in a dentists office it is more of a family here.

Five stars does not even come close to the unbelievable results that Dr. T. achieved with my full-mouth restoration. Ten stars would be more like it. Moreover, his assistant, Hosh, was nothing short of TERRIFIC. Finally, the excellent staff and caring service were over the top. This was among the best decsions that I ever made!

Thank you to Dr. Trichas for suggesting the Icon process to treat the white spots on my son’s front teeth. He had been teased about their appearance and was lacking confidence about his smile. The office visit was quick and the treatment itself was easy and non-invasive. The results are amazing. The spots are gone.

Dr Trichas gave me a smile makeover. Fourteen veneers (10 upper and 4 lower). Not only did he give me a beautiful smile, he changed the way I walk, talk and carry myself. He gave me my confidence back. But, the best part of all, is that the entire family loves going there. Including my teenage son (16), and daughter (12). All around best Dentist we’ve ever had!

Dr. Trichas and his team are incredibly professional, flexible, and treat patients with the utmost respect. I am beyond happy with the results of my cosmetic and general procedures. Dr.Trichas is truly an artist! Would highly recommend him to friends and family
I've been to Dr. Trichas a few times in the past couple of years. The first was for an emergency. I broke a tooth, tried to pull it myself and only got part of it out. Within 24 hours my mouth was swollen and the pain was unbearable. I called every dentist in the area and Dr. "T" told me to come right in. He cleared some time in his schedule to help me and removed the tooth. The removal was virtually painless, the cost was surprisingly fair and lower than other dentists quoted by phone. A+++
Our entire family sees Dr. T! The office is friendly, efficient and very warm. We have always had a wonderful experience and find his staff and Dr. T to be one of the best!

Michelle Hygienist, NJ I have been working for Dr.Trichas for at least 5 years and I have to say that I am always looking forward to going to work. I've had the pleasure in witnessing prior, during, and after exceptional treatment our patients received from Dr. Trichas and our staff. Our office of seven will continue to be their for our patients and doing our very best to reach their request and concerns. I want to thank all of our patients for being our patients!!!
I met Dr Trichas a few years ago for an emergency situation and received skilled quality care. His staff along with his beautiful relaxing office has been my go to dental practice for continuing care and cosmetic dentistry. I am always complimented on my great smile! Thank you everyone!
I am so glad I found this office when I was looking for a new dentist. Pam immediately gave me the time to explain my concerns on changing dentist and assured me that Dr Trichas could provide the experience I was looking for in a new dentist. This practice has everything! Great staff, hours that meet my needs and a knowledgeable dentist. It is the one I send all of my friends too!
Dr Trichas covers all of our family needs. Me and my husband love seeing the hygienists for our cleanings as much as our kids do. Dr Trichas gives us his full attention when we are with him and his positive personality keeps us coming back to ensure our dental health and to keep our smiles looking their very best. This staff is a winning combination.
Had a great experience with doctor and staff. Highly recommend.
My daughter is a patient of Dr. Trichas. She had a very good experience at this office. She thought Michelle was great!
I've been with Dr.Trichas for 5 years and counting because the care and attention I receive is unparalleled to any other dental office. Dr. T is superbly meticulous and is the quintessential dentist for people who pride themselves on their smiles. Thank you making my smile amazing!
Dr. T has changed my life and I will forever be grateful for him as well as his incredible team. I am 25 years old and I am currently undergoing a full mouth rehabilitation. I have gone from having my teeth be my biggest insecurity, to now smiling for no reason just because of how beautiful they look. Dr. T has eased my dentistry anxiety and has become family over the past few months. There are no words to explain how incredible this process has been and I cannot be happier with my results thus far. I can honestly say I never imagined strangers complimenting my teeth and asking for my dentists name day in and day out. Thank you to the entire team for changing my life and allowing me to smile bigger than I ever have.
