Let’s discover the many ways dental veneers can get your smile back into shape.veneers

Smiling is a universal sign of happiness and yet if you aren’t happy with the smile you have then you may find yourself feeling rather disappointed. Don’t worry; our Durham, NC, cosmetic dentist Dr. James Pyle can help change all of that. Here is just one simple solution that will help you start smiling more.

There is a reason so many people, including Hollywood actors, are turning to dental veneers to improve their smile. After all, a smile is often the first feature we notice about a person. Shouldn’t it be your best feature? Of course, if you have gaps between teeth, minor overlapping or crooked teeth, discolorations and chips, then you may feel less than thrilled about your appearance. While other cosmetic dental procedures may not be able to tackle multiple aesthetic issues at once, dental veneers can.

These remarkably thin but resilient porcelain shells are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to alter the color, shape or size of one or more teeth. Whether you want to get a completely straight smile or you just want to hide cracks, chips or discolorations, getting dental veneers from our Durham, NC, dentist can offer the coverage you need to get a beautiful smile.

Imagine having a whiter and even straighter smile after just a couple dental visits? Before veneers can be bonded to your teeth, we will first need to prep your teeth so that they are ready to receive the veneers. This means removing a very small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth so that there is enough room for veneers.

Impressions of your teeth are then taken and sent away to a dental lab so that they can craft your uniquely made veneers. We will also determine whether or not we need to place temporary veneers over your teeth until your permanent ones are made. Once your veneers have been fabricated and sent to us, you will come in for a fitting so that we can make sure you approve of your new restorations before bonding them permanently to the front of your teeth.

Ready to find out if your smile could benefit from veneers? If so, then it’s time you called our Durham, NC, cosmetic dental office and let us know that you want to talk to us about getting dental veneers. We would be happy to schedule a consultation.
