Porcelain Veneers in Winston-Salem
One aspect of dentistry our team loves is changing lives! Today's busy world demands a lot, and appearance is essential. So when you have a smile that makes you feel confident, it can be life-changing, especially if you've lived with cosmetic concerns in the past, like chipped or discolored teeth.
Even a tiny chip in your tooth can cause you to feel self-conscious about your teeth. However, if you have aspects of your smile that you're unhappy with, porcelain veneers may be able to repair your teeth and give you the stunning smile and confidence we believe every patient deserves.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers in Winston Salem are thin sheets of porcelain that our dentists customize to fit seamlessly over the surface of your teeth and cover cosmetic imperfections. Some of the smile problems veneers can cover are:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Spaces or gaps between teeth
- Stains or discoloration
- Slight tooth misalignment
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Excessively wear
It's never too late to have the beautiful smile you want, and it's more accessible now than ever before. Our dentists use veneers to repair single teeth, but they are particularly effective for restoring multiple teeth for a complete smile redesign. Think "Hollywood" smile!
Getting Porcelain Veneers
Once you've decided to invest in your new, beautiful smile, you may wonder how long it will take to complete. The good news is completing your new smile is relatively straightforward and takes about two to three weeks.
During your first visit, we prepare your teeth for the porcelain veneers, take impressions to send to a trusted dental lab, and create a second version for you to wear temporarily. You'll wear temporary veneers while the dental lab creates your final restorations. Wearing temporary veneers gives you time to get used to your new smile so you can determine if we should make any adjustments to your final ones.
Your second visit takes place after the dental lab completes your final veneers. Our dentists permanently place them and polish them for a flawless finish, making any needed adjustments at this time.
Now all that's left to do is to share your smile with the world!
