What needs to happen is to build enough rapport with the dentist so you're comfortable doing the right thing. There are patients and dentists who are moving towards a quick solution where it's not the right thing,it's going to have shortcomings. And there are cases where laminates are the solution and the right thing to do, but if you don't move the underlying teeth to get them lined up, you're going to have a thick laminate that has its own problems. You, as a dentist, having been in practice for 37 years, you're going to see that problem come back 5 years later as thick. That short-term fix is going to haunt them. They could lose that tooth and have to do something over, and it can be a mish-mash solution. I've found that when you touch base with somebody about the real factors that are going on there, they'll go with you. And you're moving appropriately—moving appropriately is at the top of the list in my opinion. Then the tools, the laminates, the crowns, your ortho, which is what I do, that becomes the tool to get it done. There's a proper order to go about it, in my opinion.
- Disguise any permanent stains or discoloration
- Cover up any gaps in your teeth
- Improve the appearance of broken or chipped teeth while also strengthening them
- Make crooked or uneven teeth appear straight

Share Your Beautiful Smile With Dental Veneers
If you’re unhappy with your smile but don’t want to deal with cosmetic dentistry solutions like braces, dental veneers could be perfect for you.
Dr. Farrell provides porcelain veneers, which benefit your smile in a variety of ways. These cosmetic laminates are:
- Made of strong porcelain to improve your appearance for years
- Customizable to appear as bright as you like
- Shield-like to protect your teeth from damage and ensure your oral health
Receiving Your New Veneers In Total Comfort
Dr. Farrell will first take digital X-rays of your smile to make sure dental veneers will benefit your smile. Digital X-rays are much safer than traditional X-rays and allow him to gain the best look at your mouth’s condition.
Your teeth may require some preparation before veneers can be bonded to the front of them. To make sure your veneers look and feel natural, some enamel may need to be removed from your existing teeth.
Dr. Farrell does this very gently and ensures you never feel a thing during the procedure. In addition to numbing key areas of your mouth, he provides dental sedation to help you feel soothed and free from discomfort.
After receiving his Doctor of Dental Medicine from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1982, Dr. Jerry Farrell went on to start a private practice of his own. Over time, he has had many achievements like the fellowship, International College of Craniomandibular Orthopaedics (ICCMO), certification in Invisalign orthodontic treatment, and more.
