MINT HILL, NC – Lately, veneers have been gaining a lot of interest, especially on social media. Veneers can help improve the alignment, shape, and color of teeth with a reasonable turnaround. If you are wondering what a veneer is, it is typically a porcelain material that is cemented on the front part of a tooth (like how a contact lens sits on the front of an eyeball). Depending on how your bite comes together and the severity of the color change and misalignment, these are considerations when determining how much of the tooth may need to be shaped and prepared to receive the veneer. Below, you will find some benefits of veneers:
- Natural appearance: The material used for porcelain veneers has a natural look in comparison to composite veneers. When fabricating the veneers, the lab will use materials that have a great color selection and add will texture.
- Long-term teeth whitening: Whitening options are fantastic for many patients if they are a good candidate for it. However, veneers will maintain their color over time unlike your natural tooth or composite bonding that can stain.
- Repair enamel loss: Whether there is a chip or wear from acid erosion, veneers can repair the damage.
