Porcelain veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Cosmetic imperfections in your smile can make you feel self-conscious enough to hide your teeth.

At Cary Prosthodontics in Cary, NC, our doctors can provide stunning porcelain veneers to create a symmetrical, beautiful smile.

So what makes dental veneers a great treatment option?

Porcelain veneers

Our Custom Veneers Can  Enhance Your Smile and Your Confidence

Advanced Materials

Our veneers are crafted from medical-grade porcelain, which resists stains and mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Dr. Kofford and Dr. Lim will carefully match the color of the dental ceramic to provide beautiful, natural-looking results.

A Versatile Option

Our doctors can use veneers to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignment. Porcelain veneers are also a good option for patients with stains that do not respond to teeth whitening.

Quality Worth Smiling about

We work with a trusted dental lab to create veneers which are both highly aesthetic and remarkably strong. With proper care, your veneers can last 10 years or more.

Let's take a look at the process of receiving dental veneers...

Feeling Self-Conscious about  Your Smile Is Common

Veneers can be useful for many patients...

We Use Veneers to  Enhance the Look of Teeth That Are:

Porcelain Veneers  Are Ideal for Cosmetic Issues

Many patients with crooked or misaligned teeth desire a quick and effective way to achieve a perfect smile. Braces and other orthodontic treatments can take months or years to straighten your teeth. In contrast, a custom set of veneers from Dr. Kofford or Dr. Lim can create a beautifully symmetrical smile in just a few visits to our office.

However, it is important to keep in mind that veneers do not address issues with the alignment of your bite and deal exclusively in the aesthetic appearance of your smile. If your crooked teeth are causing physical discomfort, such as jaw pain, orthodontics may be a better option.

You may have heard about veneers looking unnatural...

Modern Porcelain Veneers  Look Virtually Identical to Natural Teeth

In the past, dental veneers had a reputation for appearing bulky or too perfect. At Cary Prosthodontics, we use state-of-the-art techniques and materials to create veneers which blend seamlessly into your smile while creating beautiful results. Achieving natural-looking results begins with precise planning.

Our doctors use a range of digital dentistry technology to carefully map out all cosmetic dentistry treatments. We will then use conservative methods to prepare your tooth for veneer placement. We also partner with a trusted lab to create custom porcelain veneers that look and feel natural.

Is there anything you should do before your veneers are placed?

Teeth Whitening  Can Be Beneficial

If the teeth surrounding the veneers are stained or are not as bright as you would like them to be, you may want to first consider teeth whitening treatment. Since the porcelain used for veneers will be shade-matched to the rest of your smile for the most natural-looking results, whitening your teeth allows you to choose a whiter shade of veneers. Professional teeth whitening is highly customizable, allowing you to achieve the right shade for your desired outcome, whether that be a flawless white or a more natural-looking hue. During your consultation, Dr. Kofford or Dr. Lim can help you determine the best course of action to meet your goals.

What to Expect When Receiving Porcelain Veneers

You will need to attend two or more appointments at our Cary office to receive your customized porcelain veneers.

The Typical Treatment Timeline

We work with a trusted dental lab to create veneers which are both highly aesthetic and remarkably strong.

Consultation

To begin, you will meet with Dr. Kofford or Dr. Lim for an exam and consultation to determine if veneers are right for you.

Preparation

The doctor will then need to remove a small portion of the enamel so the veneer fits naturally against the tooth.

Fabrication

We will provide all the specifications to the dental lab where skilled technicians will hand-craft your veneers. Typically, fabrication takes a few weeks.

Placement

One of our doctors will check the fit and quality of your veneers. He will then carefully place each veneer and secure it in place with dental cement.

Do veneers require special care?

Preserve the Integrity of Your Veneers

Porcelain veneers are fairly low maintenance in regards to aftercare. However, there are certain precautions you can take to maintain the appearance and function of your veneers, including:

  • Avoid chewing hard objects such as ice 
  • Minimize beverages that are known to stain such as red wine
  • Do not use your teeth as tools to open or cut objects
  • Wear a protective mouthguard when playing sports 
  • Do not chew on objects such as pens 
  • Sleep with a nightguard if you have bruxism or TMJ disorder

You should also ensure that you practice proper oral hygiene and attend your regular dental exams to protect your overall oral health.
