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.
