Want to disguise the stains in your smile?

Drs. Saul Frechtman and David Frechtman, your Edison, NJ, cosmetic dentist, can help improve this issue. They provide patients with Veneersdental veneers, a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates and, in other cases, completes you smile.


A great smile has good tooth color, shape, and proper alignment. Veneers are strong wafer-thin coverings made of porcelain that go over other surfaces to repair large chips and cracks. They substitute natural tooth enamel when bonded to the front surface of your teeth.

The dental porcelain is a great substitute for natural enamel because it's translucent and tough; it doesn't stain like tooth enamel. Your Edison cosmetic dentist removes enamel from the surface of your teeth, which is an irreversible process, before bonding the veneers.

In recent years, advanced dental technology nullified removal of enamel, and veneers constructed to be thin enough to bond directly onto your existing tooth surface.

Veneers improve,

  • Color: Veneers reverse the effects of caffeine and tea, and other dental staining substances, like certain foods.
  • Size and Shape: Poor dental habits, like teeth grinding habits, affect the shape and size of teeth so veneers hide those issues.
  • Alignment and Spacing: Veneers close small dental gaps to make slight corrections in alignment, tooth color and shape.

Caring for Your Veneers:

  • Gently brush and floss your teeth every day.
  • Regular checkups at the dental office.
  • Don't exert too much pressure on veneers.
  • Use custom-made nightguard to protect veneers.

Limitations of Porcelain Veneers:

Veneers are not a good option if:

  • Teeth are significantly misaligned so orthodontic treatment may be necessary
  • Severe dental trauma and decay (extreme decay and missing teeth)


If you have any questions or concerns regarding veneers, just call and schedule an appointment with Drs. Saul Frechtman and David Frechtman. Your Edison, NJ, cosmetic dentist can determine whether or not veneers are the right dental procedure for you.
