Quick & Effective Solutions for Stained, Chipped & Malformed Teeth
We have all seen those movie stars with those gorgeous, perfect smiles on TV. Their teeth are so straight and superbly white, it almost seems like an artist designed them by hand. We’re here to let you know a little secret – if it seems like their teeth are designed, that’s because they are. Nowadays, many actors, musicians, sport stars, politicians, and other celebrities actually use porcelain dental veneers to give them such confident, brilliant smiles.
In the art world, a veneer is an extremely thin covering of the finest carved wood, varnished and painted to cloak another material. Dental veneers are also masterpieces, but for your teeth. Our Pineville dental veneers are made out of the most delicate but strong porcelain, which greatly imitates enamel. With Parkway Dentistry, any imperfections of stains, chips, cracks, or daily wear-and-tear will disappear beneath your natural looking new smile.
How Dental Veneers Work
You may have heard about veneers before, but might be hesitating about getting them because you are unsure how they work. Are they thick and uncomfortable? Does it feel strange having a “double layer” on your teeth? In reality, the magic of porcelain veneers is that even though they can totally transform a person’s smile, the veneer itself is extremely sheer and small. They are nothing like dental implants, but the thinnest sheets of ceramic which our dentist will bond right on to the external layer of your teeth.
The effect of this is that you will not feel like you are wearing some clunky set of teeth covering. Moreover, our Pineville dental veneers are virtually impossible to detect, and unlike your natural teeth, they are much more resistant against staining from different drinks and foods. Their similarity to natural, pure enamel is unmatched by other options.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
We know that choosing to get dental veneers can be a big decision, so you will want to know all the advantages of dental veneers before you invest in them. In addition to being extremely durable and stain-resistant, dental veneers can hide any irregularities you have suffered in your life, from a chipped or cracked tooth that occurred from an unfortunate accident, to the inevitable staining that comes from drinking your favorite wine, coffee, or tea. Additionally, you can get dental veneers comfortably added within one to two visits.
What’s more, porcelain veneers are not only perfect for making your smile shine more brilliantly, but it can even help to correct other dental issues, such as:
- Fixing tooth asymmetries
- Resolving crowding
- Correcting worn teeth
- Providing appropriate spacing
What Will Dental Veneers Feel Like In Your Mouth?
This is not an uncommon question for us. When placed correctly, our Pineville dental veneers should feel perfectly normal in your mouth. In fact, you shouldn't even notice them as you eat, talk, or do any other activity that requires the use of your teeth. The goal is for them to look and feel like regular teeth.
Do You Get More Cavities with Dental Veneers?
This is a common myth related to the facts that dental veneers are not enamel. However, properly made and placed dental veneers will act as an enamel substitute. The porcelain material becomes a barrier between your tooth and any plaque formation. We've seen that people with dental veneers rarely get cavities as long as they brush and floss regularly.
Do Dental Veneers Ruin Your Real Teeth?
No! We customize each set of dental veneers to fit over your teeth and enhance your exact smile. When we place dental veneers in Pineville, we utilize a special bonding material that is not harmful to your natural teeth.
Keeping Your Teeth Healthy & Safe
It is important to remember that unlike dental implants, dental veneers are not completely permanent. They also do not cure any diseases which are hidden beneath the surface. If your tooth is decaying, using a dental veneer will not stop any infection. This is why it is crucial to take care of your teeth and come in for a thorough cleaning with our team at Parkway Dentistry before you get your dental veneers.
