An unappealing smile can have a serious impact on your self-esteem and self-confidence. This is especially true if you work in a person-to-person industry such as sales or customer service. The specific imperfections you need addressed will determine the cosmetic treatment needed to give you a winning smile.

If you have multiple teeth suffering from imperfections, like stains, chips and old fillings, your Alpha Dental Spa team and dentist, Dr. David Cho, might recommend installing dental veneers.

Veneers are basically custom-made shells produced in a dental lab to match or enhance the appearance of your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel, only whiter. Since the porcelain material isn’t as porous as tooth enamel, they will resist future stains.

At your first appointment, your dentist will examine each tooth in your smile and take a few X-rays. This ensures that there is sufficient strong enamel to later mount the veneers and address any other issues.

If one or more teeth lack sufficient enamel or if you would like to make significant changes to the shape of the tooth, the dentist might recommend having the questionable tooth completely restored with a dental crown.

Once all the teeth have been addressed, your dentist will create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This impression will be sent to the dental lab where your custom dental veneers will be produced.

When the dental lab technician has completed your veneers, our Alpha Dental Spa team will call you in for the second appointment. We will then use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. This prepares the surface to securely hold the dental veneer that is cemented in place.

If you have multiple tooth imperfections, you should contact Alpha Dental Spa at 856-829-1989 to see if dental veneers in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, are right for you.
