When patients visit our Rogler Family Dentistry offices, we will take an impression of their teeth so that the veneers can be created in a lab. They will be made to match the size, shape, and color of your teeth so this can take a week or more.
In order to have dental veneers placed, Ralph E. Rogler, DMD will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This is necessary so that the veneer will lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After the tooth has been prepared, a temporary veneer will be secured using removable glue. While wearing a temporary veneer, it is important to brush your teeth gently and avoid eating any foods that could push it out of place. Since it is secured by removable glue, it can be moved fairly easily.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you will come back into our Rogler Family Dentistry offices so that Ralph E. Rogler, DMD can remove the temporary and ensure that the new veneer is a perfect fit. It is typically attached using a water based solution to see how it looks. If any adjustments need to be made, it will be done at this time. Otherwise, the tooth will be cleaned, and the dental veneer will be bonded to the tooth. Patients throughout New Jersey love how the results look. They are instant, and you can start flashing your smile right away.
After the Procedure
Your teeth will typically be sore for a few days after they have been prepared and after the permanent veneers are placed. During this time, you can take pain medication to help you stay comfortable. Patients throughout the 07853 area also benefit from getting rest and using a cold compress to reduce any swelling. Ralph E. Rogler, DMD recommend that patients watch what they eat for a few days and stick with foods that are soft. While there is a short recovery time when getting veneers, the procedure is entirely worth it because in the end you will have a beautiful smile.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs
No, the veneers procedure isn’t painful at all because we use numbing agents to help with any potential discomfort. The treatment overall is minimally invasive and won’t cause much pain after Dr. Rogler has completed also.
After we’ve completed your veneers procedure, you might feel minor sensitivity for the first few days but this will diminish quickly. If you continue to experience pain for a long period of time, please give us a call right away so Dr. Rogler can see if there’s a problem.
Veneers are designed to last around 10 years with excellent care and maintenance. However, our veneers are made of porcelain which is a long-lasting, natural-looking, durable material that’s built to last.
Our porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years with great care and regular dental visits. It’s good to know that the success and longevity of your veneers come down to you and your oral hygiene.

Unfortunately, dental insurance doesn’t usually cover veneers treatments. Since it’s a cosmetic procedure, most insurance providers don’t consider the treatment to be necessary for your health so they won’t pay for the costs.
However, we do partner with the third-party financial company CareCredit that allows patients without insurance pay for their dental treatments without worry. You can learn more about this option and easily apply online.
If your veneer falls off or is damaged, we recommend giving our Long Valley office a call right away to get in to get it fixed – (908) 850-0506. We also suggest keeping any pieces of your veneer that have fallen off if you have them.
Depending on what happened, Dr. Rogler can try to reattach your veneer when you visit so you don’t have to wait for a new one to be made. We also don’t recommend trying to fix or reattach your veneer yourself with dental glue because this can cause serious issues in the future.
In order to properly take care of your veneers so they can last for years to come, you must:
- Brush twice a day with a non-abrasive toothpaste
- Floss at least once a day to remove food and other debris between teeth and to help protect the health of your teeth, veneers, and gums.
- Rinse with an alcohol-free mouthwash after your hygiene routine to keep your veneers safely attached.
- Regularly visit Rogler Family Dentistry for your dental check-ups and teeth cleaning to avoid infection and more.
Yes, veneers are a great way to virtually straighten your teeth without needing braces or clear aligners. Since veneers are placed on the surfaces of your natural teeth, they help enhance the appearance of them no matter what the flaw might be.
However, it’s important to know that veneers won’t actually shift your teeth to be straighter. If you want a more permanent solution for crooked teeth, then orthodontic treatment may be right for you.
