What Dental Veneers Can Do for You

Discover the smile benefits associated with dental veneers.

If you are interested in revamping and improving your smile, then chances are good that you’ve heard about dental veneers, but what do you actually know about them? Our Raleigh, NC, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ashley Lloyd, is dedicated to providing the very best in cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry to patients of all ages. If you are intrigued by dental veneers, here’s what you should know about this popular cosmetic treatment: 

How Dental Veneers Reshape Smiles

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are fabricated from your teeth's specific measurements and bonded to the front of your smile to alter its shape, color, and size. Veneers can be placed on one, two, several or all of your teeth. The porcelain that our Raleigh, NC, dentist uses resembles real tooth enamel, ensuring a beautiful, natural look.

Veneers can be used to hide a wide range of cosmetic flaws including,

  • Discolorations and internal stains caused by fluoride or certain medications
  • Worn teeth
  • Chipped and cracked teeth
  • Misshapen or malformed teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth

Veneers offer a natural-looking restoration that is stain-resistant and can last up to a decade or more. 

Getting Dental Veneers

There are several steps involved in receiving dental veneers. Here’s what to expect when you turn to our dentist for treatment:

  • Consultation: We will first need to make sure that your mouth is healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry. We will examine your teeth/gums and take x-rays to make sure that you are an ideal candidate for this treatment.
  • Preparation: If qualified for treatment, we will need to prep your teeth. This involves removing off about 0.5mm of enamel from the front of your teeth to room for your veneers. After the teeth are prepped, we will take molds of your teeth. Once your molds are sent to a dental lab, it can take several weeks for the lab to make your veneers.
  • Fitting: Once your veneers are ready, you will come in for a final fitting. During this step, we will ensure that the fit is perfect, before cementing the veneers permanently into place.
