Renew Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers
Improving your smile is as simple as adding a few porcelain veneers to your problem teeth. Dr. Ashley Lloyd, your Raleigh, NC dentist, explains how you can revitalize your smile with veneers.
Veneers are a simple, effective cosmetic dentistry option
Porcelain veneers provide an excellent way to change the appearance of your teeth. Veneers consist of thin porcelain shells that are only attached to the fronts of teeth. They're a good choice if one or more of your teeth are a little too round, square, pointy or just oddly shaped. Years of grinding your teeth can cause one or more of them to become shorter than surrounding teeth. Porcelain veneers restore length and improve the symmetry of your smile.
Do you have an unsightly chip on a tooth? Veneers cover imperfections and discolorations easily. They're equally effective at hiding a discoloration caused by a filling as they are brightening your entire smile. If you're unhappy with the results of teeth whitening, veneers offer a better option. Since porcelain veneers are available in an almost limitless array of shades, you can choose the exact shade of white you prefer.
Gaps between your teeth can make you feel self-conscious every time you smile. Veneers effectively hide spaces between teeth and look completely natural. If you have large gaps, orthodontic treatment may be a better option.
What can I expect during my porcelain veneer appointments in Raleigh?
Before you receive your permanent porcelain veneers, your dentist must slightly file the front surfaces of your teeth. Filing ensures that there are no fit issues with your veneers. After filing your teeth, she'll make an impression of your mouth, which will be used by the dental lab that will create your custom veneers. You'll be given a set of temporary veneers to wear until your permanent veneers are ready in just a few weeks. Once your new veneers arrive, you'll return to the office, where they'll be bonded to your teeth. In just two visits, you'll have a brand new smile.
