Porcelain Veneers in the Triad of North Carolina
Porcelain dental veneers are a beautiful and effective method of correcting stained, chipped, crooked, or otherwise imperfect teeth. By carefully placing glasslike ceramic porcelain coverings on the surface of your teeth, our experienced dentists provide our patients with gleaming, straight, and natural looking smiles. Placement of porcelain veneers requires the skilled hand of an experienced dentist.
The glasslike ceramic that forms porcelain veneers is designed to look, act, and function just like natural tooth enamel. Because much like natural tooth enamel, porcelain veneers are transparent. This transparent effect is what gives natural teeth (as well as porcelain veneers) their luster. By replicating this natural reflective characteristic, our porcelain dental veneers provide our patients with brighter, more natural looking smiles.
Repair Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain dental veneers are also used to cover and repair cracked, chipped, and otherwise damaged teeth. Because every set of porcelain veneers are custom made and fitted to your teeth by our skilled cosmetic dentists, you can improve on much more than just the color of your teeth. Damaged, crooked, and chipped teeth can be improved by veneers improved to help recreate your beautiful new smile. Broken teeth can be repaired using dental crowns or caps, which can be precisely color matched to your porcelain dental veneers. Our dental work is so precise that you will not be able to tell which teeth are natural and which have had veneer work done.
Porcelain Veneer Procedure
An entire veneer placement procedure usually takes about three office visits, depending on the needs of the patient:
- During your first visit, our dentist will first plan your beautiful new smile by determining what size, shape, style, and type of veneer will best fit your smile, facial structures, and cosmetic desires.
- Second, we will carefully prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of existing enamel to allow the new veneer to be placed correctly. Our dentist will then place temporary veneers to protect your teeth while the permanent veneer is custom crafted in our dental laboratory.
- The final step in your smile transformation is the installation of your new, permanent veneers. You will undoubtedly head home with brand new, beautiful smile.
Cost of Veneers at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry in Greensboro
The cost of porcelain veneers depends on the number of teeth being treated. As with any dental procedure, when considering the overall cost you must take into account their longevity and level of attractiveness. Porcelain veneers are long lasting alternatives to other treatments that cost less but require more repairs and often lose their cosmetic appeal more quickly.
