Using porcelain veneers to enhance the smile

Are you tired of hiding your smile because of its imperfections? Do you want to find a way to improve the appearance of these teeth without breaking the bank? Cosmetic dental solutions such as porcelain veneers have become more attainable than ever with the assistance of Dr. John Highsmith of Clyde, NC. He can help patients enhance their smiles with these easy, natural-looking solutions!

Understanding porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers, otherwise knowns as dental veneers, are restorations made to be extremely thin. The dentist will use a ceramic material that matches the color of the existing teeth to ensure the porcelain veneer looks natural when bonded in place over the front of the problematic tooth. Porcelain veneers are incredibly desirable and can help in a variety of situations. They can cover:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Teeth that permanently stained
  • Chipped/broken teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth

The veneer is fabricated by a ceramist and specifically for the patient. These restorations can last many years with proper care.

Why choose porcelain veneers?

The field of cosmetic dentistry allows Dr. John Highsmith to offer patients several options when it comes to enhancement of the natural smile. This includes composite resin bonding and dental crowns. Veneers are often chosen because of their longevity, their appearance, and the conservative manner in which they are placed. To bond a veneer over a tooth, the dentist will remove a thin portion of enamel from the tooth’s surface. This ensures the new veneer does not add unwanted bulk to the natural smile. These changes are irreversible, which is why many patients choose porcelain veneers as a long-term solution. Alternative treatments may be chosen, but in many situations, our team may recommend veneers for the proper candidates.
