Why Should You Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can transform your smile in as few as two dental visits to our Charlotte office. Handcrafted from durable porcelain, custom shaded to blend with your existing teeth; porcelain veneers are semi-translucent shells of porcelain that our South Charlotte Dentist, Dr. Carolyn Correll, can permanently bond to your front teeth. They will completely transform your smile, and they may change your life!
Porcelain veneers can mask stained, chipped, cracked, worn, or otherwise damaged teeth in the smile zone. Porcelain veneers can also close gaps and cover misshapen teeth. They change your smile by altering the color, shape, size, and overall appearance of your teeth. Dental patients across the globe have experienced increased confidence and success through smile makeovers with porcelain veneers. You deserve the smile of your dreams, and porcelain veneers can give it to you!
A whiter, straighter, more aesthetic smile can make you appear years younger and boost your self-confidence. Porcelain veneers provide an instant smile makeover. Because veneers are thin and allow light to reflect from natural underlying dentition, they look completely natural.
How Do They Work?
Our South Charlotte dentist will first measure your facial features, discuss your ideal smile, and record data to send to the dental lab. You may want to bring photos of smile styles you prefer. To ensure a smooth and natural appearance, your dentist will usually remove a small amount of existing tooth enamel. We will administer anesthesia before tooth reduction to ensure your optimal comfort.
Once your new porcelain veneers are handmade in a dental lab, your dentist will bond them to your existing teeth in a second appointment. After we bond your custom-made porcelain veneers, you can enjoy your brilliant new stain-resistant smile for years.
Porcelain veneers need to be cared for properly. You should not chew on hard substances, like ice, and habitual fingernail biting can wear down porcelain veneers (as well as natural teeth). Proper oral hygiene and semi-annual dental hygiene appointments are also important for longevity.
