Porcelain Veneers - Denver, NC

Conceal Imperfections, Reveal Confidence

Improve Your Smile’s Appearance with Veneers

If you are struggling with minor tooth imperfections such as chips, cracks, or discoloration, our cosmetic dentists at Avason Family Dentistry offer porcelain veneers in Denver, NC to improve the appearance of your smile and give you a boost in confidence. Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material designed to cover the front surface of teeth, concealing dental concerns and blending seamlessly with surrounding teeth. In addition, they can function as “instant orthodontics,” correcting slightly crooked or gapped teeth.

At Avason Family Dentistry in Denver, NC, our team uses the highest quality, most durable material to help you achieve natural-looking results. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. We’ll discuss the best material for you during your consultation and can even provide a smile preview for you to consider before your treatment begins!

Determining Your Candidacy

To determine whether you are a candidate for porcelain veneers, Avason Family Dentistry will evaluate your oral health and the structure of your smile. We may request x-rays or advanced imaging to verify that your teeth are strong enough to support veneers. As veneer placement requires reshaping of the tooth, you must have sufficient enamel to tolerate the preparatory process.

As with all cosmetic dentistry procedures, you must be free from gum disease and tooth decay before beginning treatment. If we discover symptoms of these conditions during your consultation, we will first provide the appropriate periodontal care to address these concerns. Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist: one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. You may be eligible for this treatment if you wish to address:

  • Extensive dental staining that does not respond to traditional whitening treatments
  • Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them
  • Large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Worn teeth

Our Personalized Veneers Process

After determining candidacy, we can work with you to design veneers that meet your cosmetic goals and dental needs. Before treatment, we may administer a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.

Once you are ready, we will reshape your tooth in preparation for veneers. We will remove a small amount of enamel to ensure that your veneers fit comfortably in your smile. Our team can then take impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to a trusted dental laboratory and used to manufacture your custom veneers. As this process can take one to two weeks, Avason Family Dentistry can provide you with temporary restorations to wear while you await your final veneers.
When your veneers are ready, you will return to our office for placement. Our team at Avason Family Dentistry will ensure proper fit and color for the most realistic look. If necessary, we can also make adjustments at this time. If no modifications are needed, we will clean and gently etch the tooth surface to create a strong bond between your teeth and the veneers. We will then apply dental cement to the veneer and position it on your tooth. Once placed, we will shine a special light onto the cement to harden the veneer in place.
