Dr. Raj Upadya of Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry is a highly trained cosmetic dentist. He specializes in improving the appearance of patient’s teeth by using porcelain veneers in his Summit, NJ area dentist office. Porcelain veneers can be used to make subtle or dramatic changes to your smile. They will give you a new smile that will blend with your natural teeth and feel comfortable. For many patients, dental veneers can also improve long term dental health when addressing teeth imperfections. Porcelain veneers are used in cosmetic dentistry for a number of reasons including:
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Repairing chipped or broken teeth
- Covering stained or discolored teeth
- Repair crooked teeth
Advanced Dental Technology
Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry uses advanced technology to create dental veneers in a single office visit. Dr. Upadya utilizes E4D technology in a majority of veneer cases which allows him to design and fabricate high end porcelain veneers in the comfort and convenience of his Summit, NJ area dental office. This advanced system uses 3-D digital imaging and CAD/CAM software to create precision fit restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Porcelain Veneers: What To Expect
The porcelain veneer process will first begin with a comprehensive evaluation in our Summit, NJ cosmetic dentistry office. This will include a physical examination of the teeth, gums, jaw joints, and other support structures of the mouth. Dr. Upadya is carefully looking for signs of stress, decay or instability, which are often the underlying cause for cosmetic dental concerns. Fixing the root of the problem, rather than simply covering the teeth with dental veneers will ensure that the restoration is long lasting and comfortable. With a clear picture of your condition, Dr. Upadya will design a personalized treatment plan.
Your teeth will then be prepared by removing a minimal amount of tooth surface structure for optimal, comfortable placement of the porcelain veneers. A digital impression of the teeth will be taken and used to create the porcelain veneers. Those images are sent to a computer to create plans for veneers that will cover your teeth. The veneers are made in just minutes using the E4D milling technology. Dr. Upadya will try the dental veneers on for fit and color. Any minor adjustments are made and then the veneers are permanently cemented to the teeth in his Summit, NJ dentist office.
Porcelain Veneer: Aftercare
Porcelain veneers require some special care. Dr. Upadya will review instructions with you and show you how to floss and brush the dental veneers. Routine dental care, such as brushing and flossing are important to ensure long term health and proper fit. You will also need to continue visiting our office every six months for routine oral health checkups. During these visits, Dr. Upadya will be able to closely monitor the stability of your veneers.
