Dr. Malki: Cosmetic dentistry is also a very exciting aspect of dentistry. Porcelain veneers are pieces of porcelain that are made very thin that cover and mask imperfections in the teeth. What they can do is they can replace a single tooth or a full mouth of teeth. With porcelain veneers, we can really help patients achieve the perfect smile that they've always dreamed of, because they can tell us specifically what they want, from the shape, the color, and size of the teeth. The way porcelain veneers are made is the teeth have to be prepared ever so slightly; a very thin layer of tooth structure has to be removed. Once that thin layer is removed, we then take an impression of the teeth. From that impression, the laboratory then fabricates a stone model of the teeth, and off that stone model, they create the porcelain veneers. Another very important advancement in dentistry has been the CEREC. The CEREC is an in-office CADCAM milling machine, which means it now allows us to create crowns or caps, which is this same, in the office, all in one visit. We design the crown on a computer. Once the crown has been designed on the computer, it's then sent off to a special machine. That machine then cuts the porcelain and creates the crown for the patient. What used to take 2 to 3 weeks now can be done in about 1 1/2 hours. Announcer: In Bergen County, call Malki Dental at 201-646-0800. Beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.
