If your smile isn’t already attractive enough to knock her off her feet, consider improving it with porcelain veneers. This popular treatment option can transform an average smile to a work of art in minimal time. Why go through lengthy procedures when you can make your smile shine in just two office visits?

What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

Veneers are a great solution for many dental problems, but they won’t work for everything. For example, if your teeth are severely crooked or crowded, you may need to undergo orthodontic procedures before veneers are an option. However, veneers are a great solution for these mild to moderate dental problems:

  • Stained or yellowed teeth
  • Cracks and chips
  • Spacing or alignment issues
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Damaged teeth

If you have any of these problems, you’re probably an ideal candidate for veneers or other cosmetic dentistry procedures.

How Are Veneers Placed?

Porcelain veneers are adhered to the surface of the teeth with a special dental cement that’s very durable. Before the veneers are attached, the teeth are sanded down slightly so they don’t look too thick when the veneers are applied. Once your veneers are placed, you’ll need to care for them like your natural teeth. That includes brushing twice daily, flossing each day and maintaining regular dental checkups.

When you want to make your smile shine without receiving lengthy cosmetic dentistry treatments, veneers are the perfect option. Most veneers last about 10 years on average, which makes them a great long-term solution for imperfect teeth.

Schedule Your Consultation

If you’re still wondering whether or not veneers are the right treatment choice for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ty James or Dr. Bryce McMurphy. They will explain the benefits of veneers so you can make an informed decision regarding your treatment. To schedule your appointment, call Chapel Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today.
