There are many of us who are unhappy with the smile we were born with. But luckily, there’s the wonderful world of cosmetic dentistry to help transform smiles. At my Chapel Hill dental office, you’ll have plenty of cosmetic options to choose from, but today, we’d like to talk about one of the most popular choices: dental veneers.
Dental veneers are super-thin porcelain coverings adhered to your existing teeth. They are designed to enhance your smile and can even result in an instant smile makeover. In fact, dental veneers are so versatile, they are used to:
- Brighten dull or stained teeth
- Fix gaps
- Help repair crowded or crooked teeth
- Restore chipped or broken teeth
- Enhance teeth that appear too small, too big, or misshapen
Choosing veneers to get the smile of your dreams is an option that could eliminate the need for multiple treatments. For example, instead of braces, bonding, and whitening, veneers can achieve the same results in fewer visits. The goal of dental veneers is to create the smile of your dreams and the process is a perfect mix of science and art. Your dentist in Chapel Hill will match the veneers to your current or ideal shade of white, shape them to compliment your other teeth, and apply them artfully for a natural-looking transformation.
So if veneers can do so much, the process should be complicated, right? Not at all! Your individual plan will begin with a consultation, at which you’ll talk about your goals and your desired results. Once a plan is established, your first appointment may include prepping, or removing a thin layer of the surface of each tooth to allow space for the wafer-thin veneer shell. If needed, temporary veneers will be fitted while the permanent ones are being constructed in a lab. When finished, the permanent veneers are adhered, or bonded, to your teeth, resulting in a total smile transformation.
If you think veneers are right for you, or if you’d like to talk about the best way to get the smile you’ve always wanted, give my dental office in Chapel Hill a call today. We’ll schedule you a consultation and work together to discuss the best treatment for you.
