A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell of porcelain that bonds to the front of a tooth. We can use veneers to change the shape, color, size and symmetry of your teeth and smile, as well as mask any internal staining your teeth may have that cannot be reversed by whitening. Porcelain is our material of choice because it replicates human enamel most naturally. At Carter Sledge Family Dentistry, we use Impress e.max® porcelain for our veneers because we believe they are the most lifelike while maintaining the most strength.
You may be wondering,
“Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?”
Candidates for veneers include those with worn, chipped, spaced or discolored teeth, as well as those who just want a more beautiful smile! Veneers are a conservative option, maintaining as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Do you find yourself smiling close-lipped in pictures, trying to laugh without showing your teeth, or feeling embarrassed in social situations because of your smile? Veneers can be life changing–call us today for a consultation!
