This blog post from the team at Falls Pointe Dental in Raleigh focuses on porcelain veneers, which are one of the most popular options in cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain veneers are thin, medical-grade porcelain shells custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. They’re an ideal solution to a variety of issues, including:
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Teeth that are too short
- Teeth that are misaligned
- Gaps between teeth
To create perfect-fitting veneers, we create a model of your teeth. Following this, an experienced dental technician will use the model to make the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
