How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Correcting dental flaws may be easier than you think. Porcelain veneers offered by your Raleigh, NC, dentist, Dr. Ashley Lloyd, keep flaws hidden, enhancing your appearance.

Porcelain veneers offer a simple solution to smile issues

Correcting dental flaws doesn't have to require extensive dental work. Porcelain veneers require minimal changes to your teeth, yet offer impressive results.

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells made of porcelain, a durable material that looks just like natural tooth enamel. The restorations are no thicker than a contact lens and keep tooth flaws out of sight. They're designed to cover the fronts of your teeth only, as that's where flaws are most noticeable.

The restorations are created in a dental laboratory using an impression of your mouth made during your visit to the Raleigh dental office. Before the restorations are made, your dentist may need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure a comfortable fit. Veneers are cemented to your teeth and become a permanent part of your smile.

Veneers are an excellent option if you have any of these imperfections:

  • A Few Crooked Teeth: If your crooked teeth don't affect your bite, your dentist can improve their appearance with veneers.
  • Oddly Shaped Teeth: It's not unusual to have a few teeth that look out of place in your mouth? Veneers make your smile look more uniform by concealing twisted, pointed, and other oddly shaped teeth.
  • Gaps Between Your Teeth: Do you dislike the slight gaps between your teeth? Adding a few veneers makes gaps disappear.
  • Discolorations: Discolored teeth are very noticeable and can make you feel a little self-conscious. Veneers easily conceal discolored teeth, enhancing your appearance. Your dentist will choose a veneer color that matches the shade of nearby teeth.
  • A Dull Smile: Veneers offer a long-term approach to teeth whitening. Available in many shades of white, veneers can keep your smile whiter for 10 to 15 years or longer.
  • Short Teeth: Wear and tear or grinding your teeth can shorten them. Adding a few veneers will ensure that all of your teeth are the same length. If your teeth shortened due to grinding, your dentist can provide you with a nightguard that will protect your restorations and your teeth.
