When Are Dental Veneers Necessary?

Posted By: Gentry Dental

Do you have a smile flaw that you are interested in fixing? You might be interested in learning about porcelain veneers. 

Dental veneers are translucent, thin, tooth-colored "shells" that cover the front surface of your tooth. Dr. Heather Gentry bonds the dental veneers to your tooth to enhance your smile for ten years or longer. 

What Smile Issues Do Dental Veneers Fix?

  • Severely yellow or stained teeth—possibly from medications, fluoride treatments, root canal therapy, nicotine use, or injury
  • Enamel erosion
  • Extreme wear and tear 
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Oddly aligned, uneven, or misshapen teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Smaller than normal teeth
  • Pointed teeth

Some of our Charlotte patients only need one veneer, for example, if they have chipped or broken a tooth; other patients choose to get multiple porcelain veneers so they can achieve a symmetrical and even smile. 

Porcelain dental veneers are stain-resistant and blend in naturally with your smile. Dr. Gentry can help determine if tooth veneers are a good option for your particular dental needs. 

Are You Happy With Your Smile?

You may not be completely satisfied with our smile and are interested in knowing what your options are for enhancing your smile. During your porcelain veneer appointment at Gentry Dental, we can go over what smile flaws you want to improve. Are your teeth yellow and stained from natural aging, trauma, illness, or years of nicotine use? Do you have stubby teeth that you wish were longer? Perhaps your teeth are slightly crooked, or there are significant gaps between your teeth. There are so many reasons why a smile can be improved; in fact, many of our Charlotte patients have multiple things that they would like to fix. 

The first step in fixing and designing your perfect smile is by calling our highly-skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Heather Gentry. We are excited to see you and help you improve your quality of life and appearance! Dr. Gentry has many years of experience fixing imperfect smiles using cosmetic dental procedures.
