Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth using a thin layer of porcelain. A skilled cosmetic dentist at Clemmons Village bonds veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers cover up imperfections, such as:
- Misshapen teeth
Veneers also restore frail teeth. Although veneers can be made from resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant option. Porcelain tends to do better at replicating the look of your natural tooth enamel as well.
One of the dental team members at Clemmons Village reviews your options and helps you pick the best veneers for your unique situation.
How are veneers placed?
After a consultation, you’ll return for a follow-up appointment. During this time, one of the cosmetic dental experts at Clemmons Village takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them, in preparation for veneer placement.
Once your teeth are prepped, your dentist takes a mold of your teeth and sends it to a dental lab, where technicians create custom veneers. When the veneers are finished you’ll return to the office, where they are fitted one by one over your existing teeth.
To prepare your teeth for the bonding process, your dentist cleans and etches the surface of the teeth. He then uses specialized cement and a light source to bond cement securely to the porcelain. In no time at all, your veneers are securely in place and you have the beautiful smile you desire.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
