Improving the appearance of your smile can be as simple as adding a thin veneer to the front surface of a tooth. Here at the Mooresville, NC, office of dentist Dr. R. Scott Langdon, veneers are one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments—read on to learn why!
Veneers transform your smile
Veneers offer the ideal solution if your teeth are strong and healthy, though aesthetically flawed. These thin, tooth-shaped, porcelain shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement. Once in place, imperfections and flaws disappear from view.
The restorations only require minimal changes to your teeth. During the first appointment at our Mooresville office, your cosmetic dentist will remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure that your veneers will fit properly. He'll then make an impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom restorations.
Veneers hide a multitude of flaws
Do you have a tooth that looks like it belongs in someone else's mouth? Although the rest of your teeth may look uniform, it's not uncommon to have one tooth that's oddly shaped or crooked. Adding a veneer to your problem tooth can improve the symmetry of your smile.
The restorations also offer a convenient way to hide minor damage, such as chips and shallow cracks. Is the surface of your tooth bumpy? Thanks to your new veneer, your tooth enamel will become perfectly smooth.
Veneers can also be a long-term whitening option if your smile isn't quite as bright as you'd like. The restorations are stain-resistant and available in many shades of white, allowing any discolored teeth to match the shade of their neighbors.
