Porcelain Veneers An Overview
Patients who dislike the appearance of their smile due to cosmetic issues with their teeth have the option to cover those issues up. Changing the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth can give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers are a popular and great solution to correct these issues. They are very versatile in what they can accomplish, making subtle or dramatic changes to your smile. Tryon Family Dentistry in Cary, NC offers porcelain veneers to their patients who lack confidence in their smile.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
A dental veneer covers the front surface of an individual tooth. They are shell-like in appearance and made of material that resembles a natural tooth. It can serve both functional and esthetic roles by protecting the surface of damaged teeth while reshaping and whitening your teeth. A dental veneer is permanently bonded to a prepared tooth, and can be used to treat one or several troubled teeth. Our Cary NC dentists do recommend that you get them in sets of two for the most aesthetic and balanced results. To blend in with your smile, we will color-match your tooth veneers with the rest of your natural teeth. They are irreversible but not considered a permanent dental restoration. Therefore, you may have to replace them but if you care for them properly, they could last for decades. Some patients may never need to replace them at all!
Our dentists will use porcelain veneers to fix:
- Aging teeth that have worn down
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- The appearance of misshaped or crooked teeth
- The shape or length of teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
