In this Gastonia Dental Group blog post, we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have: “What exactly are porcelain veneers, and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”
Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown, which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front. They are often used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.
If you visit us for veneers, we will first make an impression of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to fabricate the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.
Since a minuscule layer of tooth enamel has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this is usually irreversible.
Gastonia Dental Group offers all the procedures you need to achieve a beautiful smile. In addition to porcelain veneers, we provide dental implants, and fill cavities with white fillings. Schedule an appointment with us today.
