The world of cosmetic dentistry has a ton of different options for those looking to make a change to their smile. Whether you have chips and cracks that need to be fixed, or you have deep enamel stains that you’d like covered up, the good news is that there’s a procedure out there designed to help you out.
Today, we’re going to highlight one of the lesser-known options – dental veneers.
What are they?
When you go see a doctor, there’s a good chance that he will mention dental veneers as an option for either fixing chips and cracks in your teeth, or whitening stained teeth. Dental veneers are nothing more than wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are glued into place on the outward-facing surface of your tooth. They are a less-invasive option than dental crowns or bridges.
How do they work?
If Dr. Jerry Butler recommends that you get veneers, you’ll start first with an evaluation to see which teeth absolutely need them. After that, our team will take very precise measurements of your teeth. The veneers will be cut and shaped to match just your teeth, and they can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years.
Once your veneers are ready for installation, you’ll receive a call from our dental team in Boone, North Carolina. You’ll be brought back into our offices where the installation process takes place. It’s simple and painless – the veneers are coated with cement, as is the surface of your tooth. Then the cement is cured quickly with a UV light. You’ll walk out with a brand new smile!
Not only will you have a brilliant new smile, but a newfound confidence and the ability to eat, drink and speak as before (maybe even better!). Consult with our team to see if this is the right decision for you and your smile.
