Porcelain Veneers An Overview
Do you often hide your smile when meeting someone for the first time? Do you smile confidently in photos?
When you don’t feel satisfied with the way your teeth look, you may tend to hide your smile, even subconsciously. This might make you appear unhappy or unapproachable and can take a toll on your relationships, both personal and professional.
The good news is that there are great solutions for repairing and improving your smile! Porcelain veneers could deliver the results you desire. Porcelain veneers procedure is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures we do in Wake County, NC. It is an economical alternative for may restorative dental procedures. Although, it does not replace treatments for severe dental issues like lost teeth, or gum disease.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain designed to fit on the front of your troubled tooth. Because it’s bonded directly to your tooth, it covers imperfections such as:
- Size and shape discrepancies
- Stains or discoloration
- Small misalignment issues
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Small fractures or chipping
- Excessive wear caused by bruxism (grinding your teeth)
Veneers can be used to repair one or a few teeth. We can also use them to completely redesign your smile after restorative dentistry. In fact, many of those movie star smiles that you admire in Hollywood have actually been enhanced with porcelain veneers.
