You've spent years admiring your favorite actress's beautiful smile onscreen; however, you never thought a million dollar smile like that would be accessible for you. Now you've heard that porcelain veneers in Southpark, NC can deliver the look you've always wanted, and it won't even cost you a million dollars! Here's what you should know about porcelain veneers.
What is a Dental Veneer?
A dental veneer is a micro-thin layer of porcelain that is designed to fit over your tooth. Because it is bonded directly to your tooth, it covers imperfections such as:
- Stains and discoloration
- Small chips and fractures
A veneer is also capable of changing the appearance of your tooth including the size and shape. This means it can take care of issues such as:
- Gaps and spacing between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Size discrepancies
- Excessive wear
- Slight misalignment issues
What is the Process of Getting Veneers?
Believe it or not, porcelain veneers can actually be completed very quickly, typically in two appointments. Dr. Gentry will work closely with you to design your dream smile and then she'll prepare your teeth for the veneers. You will leave your first appointment wearing temporary veneers that will give you the opportunity to experience the look and feel of your final restorations. This is a great time for you to get used to your new smile and decide if there are any adjustments you'd like Dr. Gentry to make when you return for your final veneers.
Once your final veneers have been crafted at a top dental laboratory, you will head back to Gentry Dental to have them permanently placed.
