How Can Dental Veneers Help My Smile?

If you’ve been looking for ways to improve the appearance of your smile, your trusted team at Dental Care of North Carolina is here to help. We are proud to offer a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures, including dental veneers, to mask tooth imperfections with stunning results! Are you ready to love your smile?

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain or composite resin “shells” that we place over the front surfaces of teeth to improve their color, size, shape, length, or appearance, completely transforming your smile. While these restorations are generally used for cosmetic purposes, they can also restore the health and function of damaged teeth. Depending on your needs, we can place dental veneers on one or several teeth.

Are You a Candidate for Dental Veneers?

Candidates for dental veneers must be in good oral health and be free of decay, cavities, or gum disease. If needed, we may recommend cavity repair or gum treatment to allow you to enjoy the many benefits of dental veneers.

  • Dental veneers can effectively correct a range of conditions, including the following:
  • Staining and discoloration not responsive to traditional teeth whitening
  • Large gaps between teeth
  • Worn, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Uneven, misshapen, or misaligned teeth
  • Small or short teeth

What Is the Material Used for Dental Veneers?

Porcelain/Ceramic The stain-resistant material has light-reflection properties that mimic natural tooth enamel, with stunning results. However, creating and attaching porcelain veneers is lengthier and more involved than composite resin veneers. With proper care, you can expect to enjoy your winning smile anywhere from 10 to 15 years, and in some cases, even 20 years!

How Should You Care for Your Veneers?

Make sure you maintain daily brushing and flossing, and don’t forget to schedule your routine dental exams and cleanings to keep your smile in tip-top shape. Keep in mind that veneers can chip just like your natural tooth enamel, so avoid biting your nails or chewing on hard objects. If you grind your teeth in your sleep, a mouthguard can help prevent damage.
