Cosmetic dentistry in Cornelius, NC has helped patients improve their smiles for decades, and one of the most successful dental products of the last twenty years or so has been dental veneers. Not only do they allow patients to have a brighter, straighter smile quickly, they are easy to replace when they wear down and they can be placed with a minimum of discomfort.
Porcelain Veneers are quite simply cosmetic surface coverings for teeth that fit the patient’s mouth and provide protection while they improve the aesthetics of that patient’s smile. They are often used by patients with slightly off-color teeth or who wish to straighten a smile that has only minor misalignment without the lengthy process offered by orthodontics.
Dental Veneers are not permanent. They do occasionally need to be replaced as they wear out. Veneers made from more robust materials will last longer, but veneer work is not permanent.
Porcelain is incredibly durable and capable of looking like natural teeth. It’s also been in use for a long time. As a result, dental veneers made from the substance are:
Your mouth is measured carefully prior to the fitting, which allows for veneers that are a perfect match to be made. Once they are ready, Dr. Haines or Dr. White will bond them to the teeth, creating a semi-permanent bond that should hold until the veneers become worn enough for you to consider replacement.
