Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade porcelain or resin. At Winston-Salem Dental Group, one of their uses is to improve the appearance of a smile. They’re like getting a facelift for your teeth!
Are there aspects of your smile you don’t like? It might be a tooth damaged with a chip or crack; a tooth that is worn down, or stained; it may be a couple of teeth with an unsightly gap between them. Porcelain veneers can correct these issues.
Veneers are custom-fitted to the tooth or teeth being treated. After being created by a dental technician, the veneers are permanently bonded to the front of the tooth. A thin layer of enamel must be removed before bonding, so once they’re on, they’re on for good.
Although veneers are usually thought of as cosmetic, they can be used to repair damaged tooth enamel, too. Once a veneer is bonded to a tooth, it is a strong and durable surface.
