Our cosmetic dentistry in Durham, NC is designed to give you the smile you have always wanted. And we have options to fit many patient budgets.

One popular choice that we offer is dental veneers. Patients often choose them because they are versatile and can conceal a variety of aesthetic flaws, including:

  • Worn down or shortened teeth
  • Gummy-looking smiles
  • Mildly crooked teeth
  • Uneven spacing between teeth
  • Midline appearance

Celebrities and models have long chosen dental veneers because they can dramatically transform the smile—giving the wearer a symmetrical, movie star finish.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells that go across the fronts of teeth. They are designed to pick up and reflect light just like your natural enamel, and you can choose a single veneer or transform every tooth! You can also incorporate veneers into a smile makeover that includes tooth whitening, dental implants, and other cosmetic dentistry options.

Dental Veneers in Durham, NC

The first step to your new smile with dental veneers is a consultation in our dental office. Your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and talk to you about your smile goals. Then, should you decide to move forward with veneers, we take impressions of your teeth and start to prepare the teeth you want to enhance for veneer placement.

To properly place dental veneers, your dentist removes a small portion of tooth enamel to help the veneers better flush with your gums and untreated teeth. This provides a natural-looking finish.

Following veneer placement, your dentist will talk to you about upkeep and provide tips to keep your veneers in top shape.
