If you are looking for a smile makeover or just an improvement of your current smile, dental veneers may be an option for you. With dental veneers, we are able make adjustments down to the smallest detail of your smile.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain caps that are placed over the front part of the tooth. They are a way to permanently improve your smile. Veneers are used to correct a range of dental issues, such as stained teeth, crooked/misshapen teeth, chipped or worn teeth, and spaces between teeth.
Veneers can be made out composite resin material. However, these can change color or break down over time. With porcelain veneers from our Raleigh dental office, you will never have to worry about whitening.
You can get a veneer for one tooth (if you are happy with your smile but have one stubborn tooth that stands out) or multiple teeth (if you are looking for a complete smilemakeover). Most people need about 6-8 dental veneers, however it is also depends on how many teeth are visible when you smile.
Veneers are not recommended for teens as their teeth are still under development. But if you are in your mid-20s, 30s, 40s, or even pre-retirement with good oral hygiene, you can consider veneers if you do not like the look of your teeth. Healthy teeth with no active decay and healthy gums with no periodontal disease are the first steps to determine if you are a candidate for dental veneers, as decay can breakdown the tooth under the veneer and periodontal disease can cause tooth loss.
Depending on your smile goal, the best alternative for crooked teeth is Invisalign and teeth whitening for stained teeth.
