Do you ever find yourself covering your mouth when you smile? Are you self-conscious of chips, cracks or discoloration that disrupt the aesthetics of your smile? If you are looking for a way to revamp your beautiful smile, New Bern, NC cosmetic dentist Dr. Stephen Hoard may have the solution to your cosmetic dental concerns.
Porcelain Veneers use the latest in dental technology and material to provide stunning and natural looking results. Dental veneers are a very thin porcelain shield that Dr. Hoard will adhere to the front and sides of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are designed to be a permanent restoration and can improve both the look and health of your smile.
Dental Veneers For A Smile Makeover
Dental veneers can change the look of your smile while maintaining its natural beauty. Veneers are made of a highly durable and tooth-like material. The porcelain reflects light just like natural teeth allowing your veneers to blend seamlessly with your smile. The material is both highly resistant to stains and decay and can last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene.
Porcelain veneers are versatile and can be used to address a range of dental concerns:
- Close small gaps or spaces between teeth
- Whiten discolored teeth
- Repair small chips or cracks
- Reshape teeth
- Lengthen teeth
- Re-alignment of crooked teeth
Porcelain veneers are permanent and are an investment in the aesthetics and health of your smile. Many patients will use porcelain veneers to correct one or two teeth, while some use them for a total smile makeover. The veneer treatment requires Dr. Hoard to remove the surface of the tooth to make room for the veneer. Once prepped, the veneer will be permanetly bonded to the teeth.
Bonding As An Alternative
If you are not ready to make the financial commitment of dental veneers, tooth bonding may be an excellent alternative. Tooth bonding can address similar cosmetic concerns but are more cost efficient. Tooth bonding is highly durable and long lasting but will need to be maintained 3-10 years after treatment. Tooth bonding requires less tooth preparation and can be removed.
