Upgrade your SMILE using Veneers!

Are you finally moving forward to establish the pretty smile that you’ve always wanted? If so,  veneers is one of the top cosmetic dentistry treatment options at Fourth Ward Dentistry in Charlotte, NC.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the visible surface of the teeth to correct various dental imperfections. Veneers are custom-made, so they’ll fit your teeth perfectly.

  • Veneers can fix chipped teeth, staining or discolorations on teeth, irregular or small teeth, and abnormally spaced teeth.
  • The veneers are bonded with the teeth after removal of a small amount of enamel which finally results in a lovely smile with no changes to your bite.

What is the treatment procedure like?

The process of getting veneers is comfortable and easy to obtain. First, the dentist will discuss your goals and examine your teeth. Then, X-rays will be taken of your teeth to make sure they’re suitable for veneers.

There are a few steps through which our experienced dentist can provide you with the best dental veneer treatment.

Step 1: The dental team will firstly remove a small amount of the tooth surface from the visible part of the tooth for placement of the veneer.

Stage 2: After the complete preparation of the tooth an impression is taken for the fabrication of the dental veneer. The dental impression is sent out to a dental laboratory, which takes a few days to construct your veneer

Stage 3: At the final dental appointment, the veneer fabricated in the lab is bonded to the prepared tooth surface with adhesive after carefully adjusting them for the perfect fit.

Once your veneers are bonded, no one will be able to tell you have them. Veneers last for a very long time, and you won’t have to do any special maintenance beyond your regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings.

Dental veneers is the best treatment option for minor aesthetic issues such as stained teeth, minor cracks in teeth, chipped teeth, and small gaps between the teeth. If you want to significantly improve the overall appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile, then Dr. Sundaresh at Fourth Ward Dentistry in Charlotte, NC is the right place for you.

Get your pearly whites before the end of the year!


This month is dedicated to promoting healthy mouths all across the country, and celebrating the hard work your favorite dental hygienist does to keep your pearly whites squeaky clean.

How to Observe National Dental Hygiene Month:

Floss Every Day

Much controversy exists around flossing, but we are here to tell you (with the advice of dentists backing us) that flossing is something you should be doing every day. There are things that brushing just can’t take care of, and that’s where flossing comes in.

Brush Twice a Day for Two Minutes

Brushing your teeth twice a day doesn’t only help battle morning breath and that lingering gross taste in your mouth, it also helps reduce the chances that you will develop gum disease. So every morning and every night, squeeze that toothpaste onto your toothbrush and get brushing, for two solid minutes.

Rinse With Mouthwash

Another thing that people think is optional with oral hygiene is mouthwash. But, according to dental hygienists, it shouldn’t be. Aim to make rinsing with mouthwash a regular occurrence after you brush and floss. This antimicrobial rinse will help keep your mouth clean and will do wonders for your breath.

Why National Dental Hygiene Month is Important?

  • It encourages oral health 🙂

  • No one likes a dirty mouth, especially when it’s your own. Keeping your oral health on track is a great way to keep bacteria at bay. Without proper dental hygiene, you put yourself at risk of developing issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.

  • It celebrates the hard-working hygienists! With over 200,000 dental hygienists in the United States, this holiday is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the work that these fabulous people do to keep our mouths happy and healthy.

  • It’s an excuse for a new toothbrush.Admit it. New toothbrushes are fun — for a while. Most dentists recommend soft bristles, but make sure you check in with your dental professional to see what’s best.
