Spectrum Family Dentistry proudly offers dental veneers to patients in the greater Raleigh area who want to instantly improve the appearance of their smiles. Learn more about this cosmetic procedure, the benefits, and whether you may be a candidate for veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin coverings that dentists apply to the surface of your teeth to improve the shape, color, or overall appearance. There are primarily two types of veneers that dentists use:

  • Composite veneers: Use resin that sculpts your teeth and lasts between four and eight years
  • Porcelain veneers: Remove a thin layer of tooth enamel and use a lab-made porcelain shell to cover teeth for 10 to 15 years

Both options have their advantages and will greatly improve your smile. However, we recommend porcelain because of its durability and natural look. If you prefer temporary veneers, the composite type is a better solution.

Can Anyone Get Porcelain Veneers?

Everyone’s teeth are different, so there is no one-size-fits-all solution for veneers. To be a candidate for veneers, cosmetic dentists typically look for patients with good oral health and plenty of enamel but minor cosmetic issues, including:

  • Severe teeth stains
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Slight gaps between teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth

There is no need to worry if you have sensitive teeth. The procedure itself involves little discomfort, and any sensitivity you experience after application should subside in a few weeks.

What To Expect During Your Dental Procedure

Getting dental veneers is a multi-step process. The first step is to make an initial consultation with Spectrum Family Dentistry so we can go over your dental history and create a treatment plan that works for you. Next, we’ll take a mold of your teeth to create custom veneers in a lab.

Once the final veneers are ready, you can head back to our office for the bonding procedure. We’ll gently shave the surface of your teeth to make room for the porcelain shells, then prepare to place them. This involves checking the fit and color of the porcelain against your teeth before applying chemical bonding agents.

Caring for Your Veneers

Once you have veneers, you should care for them the same way you care for your natural teeth. Brush twice a day with a non-abrasive toothpaste, and floss every day to prevent gum disease. Keep up with your dental care by visiting your dentist for professional cleanings every six months to remove plaque and tartar from any crevices around your teeth.

If you are prone to clenching your teeth at night, we can fit you for a protective mouth guard to reduce the amount of strain on your teeth. Addressing this problem, known as bruxism, ensures that your veneers last longer and your teeth stay healthy.
