Veneers are thin porcelain or resin coverings that are placed over the front of a tooth. They are perfect for those people who are bothered by the shape and look of their teeth. Veneers look like natural teeth when done properly and they are a perfect fit for the teeth.
Veneers are used to correct teeth that are stained, chipped, worn, crooked or misshapen. They can also be used to correct gaps between front teeth and small misalignments in the teeth. Veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. A small amount (about the thickness of a fingernail) of dental enamel is removed in order to accommodate the veneer. The perfect smile can be achieved in as little as two dental visits. Veneers are customized for each person and porcelain is blended and layered at the lab to create the best shade match for you.
Benefits of veneers are a boost in self-confidence and a bright white smile that is stain resistant! The durability and low maintenance of veneers are often overlooked. When compared to other treatments, veneers are made to last many years. They do not require any special maintenance other than good oral hygiene.
A beautiful smile does not always require a difficult procedure. Veneers can easily correct cosmetic concerns so that you can show the world a more beautiful, perfect and even smile. Your Cary dentist can educate you on the process further.
