"• Wish I had the mindset earlier in life to take personal time out for myself and develop a routine Floss-Floss-Floss. • Went every 6 months to the dentist and did what I thought was right. Was comfortable with where I was and felt I was receiving the best care. Then I came across Dr. Patel and found the care could be even better. His artistry and technology make him superior in the care he provides. • I decided to become engaged in my dental journey and make a commitment on my part for Dr. Patel to help me. • My TMJ disorder used to cause headaches, popping in my jaw and pain. One day I woke up and realized I hadn’t taken any Ibuprofen in days because I was finally feeling relief. I noticed that my overall quality of life began to change, and I no longer felt the stress and pain I had experienced for so long. • I think for everyone, money is a factor when it comes to taking care of themselves. I decided to invest in myself, and it has become the best gift I could’ve received. • Time is not a factor, and you are the priority at Dr. Patel’s office. The saying “Love the one you’re with” comes to mind every time I call the office or go in for an appointment. Each staff member makes you feel as though you’re the only one present and they’ve got all the time in the world for you. • I challenge any other doctor to have the same passion for dentistry and compassion for their patients as Dr. Patel does. If you go to Dr Patel, you will never change dentists again!"- D.B. / Google / Dec 06, 2021

Porcelain veneers can be used to quickly mask chips and stains on your enamel, improve misaligned or worn down teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly shaped or spaced. At our facility, your porcelain veneers will be custom made to fit comfortably over your teeth for an attractive and natural look using Dr. Patel's highly innovative CEREC 3D Restorative System. At your consultation, Dr. Patel will listen to your goals and expectations so he can customize your treatment. From there, he will determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers by evaluating your overall oral health. To be a candidate for porcelain veneers, you should not exhibit signs of periodontal disease, or habitually clench your jaw and grind your teeth (called bruxism).
What To Expect
As soon as you have developed your unique treatment plan with Dr. Patel, he will take digital impressions of your mouth so your veneers can be tailor-made to fit your smile. Your porcelain veneers will be produced in our office with our CEREC 3D Restorative System, which uses high-quality porcelain material. When your porcelain veneers are ready, Dr. Patel will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates space for the veneers and improves the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your veneers are bonded, Dr. Patel can make minor adjustments until your veneers are ideally comfortable.
Since getting veneers normally does not require anesthesia, you should be able to continue your daily activities after your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold food for a few days, but this should subside naturally. Your veneers should be cleaned, like your natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. While porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains compared to your natural enamel, you should still avoid staining foods and drinks to keep your smile bright. To avoid harming your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to schedule your annual dental exams and bi-annual cleanings at Sangiv I. Patel, D.D.S., PA so we can monitor the condition of your porcelain veneers, teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Dr. Patel will let you know if your cosmetic veneers have to be repaired or replaced as time goes on.
Veneers are a cosmetic procedure so they are usually not paid by dental insurance. Dr. Patel's private practice does accept many payment methods, including medical financing, to make your treatment easier to afford. During your consultation, Dr. Patel will customize your treatment to fit your goals and budget. He will go over an estimate for your treatment and explain your payment options.
