Porcelain Veneers

Do you feel self-conscious about dental imperfections such as cracks, gaps, and discoloration?

Drs. Brandon Kofford and Kevin Lim offer stunning porcelain veneers to correct a variety of cosmetic flaws and enhance your smile.

So why do patients of our Cary, NC, practice choose dental 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. In fact, other people probably won't notice you're wearing a veneer because each restoration is crafted to look just like a natural tooth.

A Versatile Solution

Our doctors can use dental veneers to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including chips, cracks, gaps, and minor misalignment. Veneers are also a good option for patients with intrinsic tooth stains that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments.

Quality Worth Smiling About

We work with a trusted dental lab to create restorations that are both natural-looking and remarkably strong.  With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last over 10 years while retaining their beautiful characteristics.

I was afraid of the dentist for years because of bad past experiences. My teeth had gotten to the point where I was hiding them when I smiled so I decided it was time to face my fears. Dr Kofford and staff made all my fears and anxiety go away the moment I got in the chair. I have never meet a more caring and skilled dentist. I now have a smile I can be proud of.

Digital Technology Enhances Our Treatment

Achieving natural-looking results begins with precise planning. Our doctors use a range of digital technology to carefully plan all cosmetic dentistry treatments. Intraoral cameras and 3D scanners give us the most accurate information about your teeth so we can perform conservative preparation.

Porcelain Veneers Provide Results in Two Visits

Many patients with crooked or misaligned teeth desire a quick and effective way to achieve a beautiful 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 and 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 work best for correcting minor gaps and misalignment, and do not address problems with your bite. If you have more severe asymmetry or issues with your jaw alignment, we may recommend orthodontics instead.

Our 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, serving patients from throughout greater Raleigh, NC, we use state-of-the-art techniques and materials to create veneers that integrate seamlessly with your smile.

What if all of my teeth are stained?

You Can Combine Veneers with Teeth Whitening

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 color-matched to the rest of your smile, a preliminary whitening treatment allows you to select a brighter shade for your restorations.

Professional teeth whitening is simple and highly customizable. Our patients throughout Cary, Raleigh, NC, and surrounding communities can select their desired shade of white, and we can tailor your treatment to achieve that shade throughout your smile. During your consultation, Dr. Kofford or Dr. Lim can help you decide if a combination of treatments will help you better achieve your goals.

Consultation

We assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and take highly precise images of your teeth with our intraoral camera to determine if veneers will work for you. Next, we begin to plan your treatment with our digital dentistry software. 

Preparation

The doctor will need to remove a small portion of the enamel so the veneer lays flush with your surrounding teeth. We remove a minimal amount of dental tissue.

Fabrication

The information we collect is sent to our trusted dental lab. Skilled technicians hand-craft the veneers, and return the finished product to our office in a few weeks.

Placement

One of our doctors will check the fit and appearance of your veneer against the surface of your tooth. After making any necessary adjustments, we carefully bond the restoration to your enamel.

Do veneers require special care?

Making Your Veneers Last

Porcelain veneers are fairly low-maintenance in terms of aftercare. In fact, taking care of them is basically just like taking care of your natural teeth. However, there are certain precautions you can take to make your veneers last:
 

  • Avoid chewing hard objects such as ice 
  • 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 night guard 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 oral health.
