Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic Veneers in Waxhaw NC

Dental VeneersPorcelain veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-colored ceramic material placed over the surface of the tooth. Veneers are:

  • Conservative: minimal amount of natural tooth must be altered
  • Stain-resistant: do not change color over time, unlike bonding materials
  • Customized to each patient
  • Long lasting, and do not need to be replaced as frequently as composite restorations
  • Beautiful and natural in appearance

Porcelain veneers are placed to:

  • Cover worn, chipped, or cracked enamel: age-proof your smile
  • Improve the color of darkened teeth, masking stains from medications, coffee, tea, and cigarette smoking
  • Create ideal tooth shape: correct teeth that are too small, too short, or too large
  • Esthetically straighten teeth that are crowded, “gappy”, or otherwise misaligned
