What are dental veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a perfect way to achieve a more beautiful smile! Thin, semi-translucent shells, veneers are bonded to the front of the teeth to correct various smile flaws, including:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Fractured or cracked teeth
  • Spaced or gapped teeth
  • Very worn teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Teeth of a disproportionate size

Dr. Monahan, our knowledgeable dentist, will be able to determine if porcelain veneers are right for you.

How are porcelain veneers applied?

At our dental office, we use porcelain veneers. Porcelain is a strong, beautiful material that looks and feels like natural tooth enamel. To apply porcelain veneers in Burlington, North Carolina, Dr. Monahan will first prepare your teeth. Teeth are lightly buffed and a small layer of enamel is removed to accommodate the thickness of the veneer. We will temporarily place the porcelain veneer to ensure it fits correctly and is the proper shape and color. After all adjustments have been made, each porcelain veneer is permanently cemented into place. No matter your dental flaws, we have a solution to restore your smile.
