Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Virtually all patients with cosmetic problems are candidates for dental veneers or Lumineers if they are in good oral health. As a cosmetic dentistry treatment, veneers aren’t meant to resolve functional issues with teeth, such as a bad bite (malocclusion). Instead, they can be a great option if you have the following issues in your smile zone, or the teeth that show when you smile:
Treatment with veneers or Lumineers is a highly personalized and detailed process at our Charlotte, NC dental practice. To provide the greatest aesthetics, these restorations must both hide problem teeth and provide the appearance of a new smile that looks and feels completely natural. During your first appointment, our cosmetic dentist will remove a few millimeters of the front surface of your tooth enamel. This ensures that your custom restorations fit naturally and comfortably over your existing teeth. If you choose Lumineers, this option has an ultra-thin design that eliminates the need for tooth preparation! Next, we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to hand-design your veneers to the most ideal size, shape, and color for a beautiful new smile.
When your restorations are ready, you’ll return to our cosmetic dentistry practice in Charlotte, NC for a second appointment. We’ll first verify the final fit of your veneers or Lumineers and then bond them securely to your teeth. You won’t need to complete any special maintenance with these restorations, and though they won’t stain as natural teeth do, you should continue brushing and flossing each day. The long-lasting result of your smile makeover is a completely new smile that complements your gum and lip line, facial features, and skin tone! In short, you’ll have the smile of your dreams, and one that will last you for many years to come. Don’t wait to schedule your two office visits and get the smile of your dreams!
