Dooley Dental 4th Quarter
Greetings from Dr. Dooley and the entire team here at Dooley Dental! The New Jersey air is just starting to turn brisk, and you know what that means: the holiday rush will be here before you know it. It seems to start earlier and earlier every year, right? Before things get really busy, we wanted to tell you about how we can help you dramatically improve your smile’s appearance and save money at the same time, as well as highlight one of our very special patients and excellent staff members.
Create Your Dream Smile & Save with Porcelain Veneers
With the holidays coming up, you’re probably going to be spending a lot more time with friends and family pretty soon (at least we hope so!). Of course, if you’re self-conscious about the way your smile looks, this normally joyous time of year can actually become quite stressful. Nothing is more annoying than posing for a holiday picture and feeling like you have to hide your teeth.
That is why our practice is happy to provide porcelain veneers, one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today. For decades, they have been the go-to dental treatment for both Hollywood celebrities and models alike. Why are they so sought after? Because they are able to completely transform a smile all on their own and correct numerous imperfections with just one simple procedure.
Porcelain veneers can be used to:
- Instantly whiten teeth
- Fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Make a small or misshapen tooth look more uniform
- Eliminate noticeable gaps between teeth
- Make slightly misaligned teeth appear straighter
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is actually an extremely thin ceramic shell that is bonded to the front of the tooth, and they are always completely custom-made to give each person their own perfect smile. You can get one to correct a single tooth or an entire set to achieve even more dramatic results.
In fact, we believe in them so much that we are currently running a special. Now, you can get 8 veneers (enough to cover all of the teeth that show when you smile) for the price of 6! This special will save you over $3,000, making it even easier to get the smile of your dreams.
What is the Procedure Like?
When you come in to get porcelain veneers, everything will start with a consultation where Dr. Dooley will examine your teeth and determine whether or not they are the best way to give you a beautiful smile. If they are, the next step will be to prepare your teeth to fit the veneers, which will involve removing a tiny portion of the enamel so they will lay flat. After taking an impression, you’ll be fitted with a temporary set of veneers, and the impression will be sent to a dental lab to fabricate your final veneers.
After a week or so, you’ll return to our office where we’ll remove your temporaries and fit you with your brand new veneers. After that, you’re done, and we know you’ll just love what you see in the mirror.
And just like that, you’ll be able to enjoy the holidays without having to worry about your smile. There’s still time to get veneers before things start ramping up, so if you’d like to learn more, please contact us today!
Create Your Dream Smile
While each one of our patients is truly special, we like to feature at least one each season in an effort to help others. We can talk about different dental treatments all day, but actually seeing how one has improved someone’s life is a completely different experience. If you identify in any way with Elizabeth’s story below, please feel free to contact us and ask any questions you might have.
For years, Elizabeth felt very self-conscious about her smile due to some slight discoloration and alignment issues, and she just wished she could do something to make it look better. She shared this with her hygienist, Audra, during one of her regular appointments, and she completely understood and suggested a variety of ways Elizabeth could improve her smile’s appearance. All Elizabeth really wanted was a brighter, younger, and more attractive smile, but it needed to look completely natural and not fake in any way. The absolute last thing she wanted was a smile that obviously looked like she had work done.
Hearing these concerns, Dr. Dooley and Audra recommended that she get No-Prep veneers. Unlike regular porcelain veneers, this treatment wouldn’t involve any alteration of her existing dental structure, but it would still provide the optimum results when it came to enhancing her smile’s esthetics and strength.
After explaining this treatment thoroughly and going over all of her options, Dr. Dooley help create Elizabeth’s new smile over the course of just two visits. Elizabeth was simply overjoyed with the results, and as you can see from the pictures, it’s no wonder why. She had finally achieve the smile she always wanted, and the process was much simpler than she could have ever imagined.
What We Can Learn From Elizabeth
First of all, it’s perfectly alright to want your smile to look better. Your smile is probably the first thing people notice about you, so making sure it sends the right message is very important. Plus, like Elizabeth, it’s OK to voice these kinds of concerns during your regular checkups and cleanings. When you come to see us, if you ever have any questions or concerns, you can always let us know. We’re here to listen and serve, and we can only help you fix the problems that we know about. Even if you don’t currently have an appointment scheduled, you can always call our office and ask questions. We’ll be happy to set up a consultation with Dr. Dooley any time you want.
If you, like Elizabeth, would like to improve the appearance of your smile, Dooley Dental has a multitude of ways we can do it, and we’ll formulate a customized plan to not only give you the perfect smile, but the perfect smile for you.

Our Wonderful Staff
The quality of any dental office is truly defined by their team, and since that’s the case, then we know that Dooley Dental is doing very well. Each one of our team members has years of experience in the dental field, and every day, they come together to help our patients have the smoothest and most stress-free dental experience possible. While we could sing the praises of all our staff members well into 2018, for the sake of time, we’ve decided to feature just one right here.
Say Hello to Kathleen!
Kathleen hails from Point Pleasant and works as a dental assistant in our office. In this capacity, she’s basically able to do just about anything you can imagine, from helping Dr. Dooley treat patients chairside to working the computers at the front desk. She wears many hats and does it all quite well! After taking time to raise her children, she decided to re-enter the workforce in the dental field about 4 years ago.
Looking back, she knows she made the right decision going into dentistry because she really enjoys working with patients, both fulfilling their dental needs and helping them feel comfortable during their appointments. She also feels very lucky to be a part of Dooley Dental because it gives her the opportunity to work with a team that always puts patient care and quality before anything else. While she might be relatively new to her career, she’s doing fantastic and is always eager to learn more so she can better serve our patients.
Currently, Kathleen and her family live in Brick, and most of her free time is taken up by her sons, one in high school and one in college and her daughter in middle school. When she can get away for a few moments, you can usually find her at the beach, any given baseball field, or running with her dog.
We Hope to See You Soon!
As you can see, we have plenty of great things going on here at Dooley Dental, and they’re all intended to help our patients smile a little wider and a little more. Heading into 2018, we hope to continue providing people with the highest-quality dental care possible in an environment that always makes them feel welcomed and relaxed.
