Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Dental veneers can help patients in the Piedmont, NC area brighten their smiles

Do you feel self-conscious about your smile? Do cracked or chipped teeth force you to miss opportunities both socially and professionally? With dental veneers, patients in Piedmont, NC can cover minor tooth imperfections and transform their smile into one they’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Virtue uses porcelain veneers to mask flaws and leave a radiant and natural looking smile.

Dental Veneers Procedure in Piedmont NC Area

Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain ceramic. When bonded to the front of existing teeth, they can cover several imperfections including crooked, cracked, misshapen, or improperly spaced teeth.

The dental veneer procedure is typically completed in two separate appointments.

Initial appointment

During the initial appointment, the teeth will need to be prepared for the placement of veneers. This involves removing a thin layer of enamel from the front of the tooth, allowing room for bonding of the permanent veneer. Impressions will be taken to help determine the appropriate shape and color of the veneers. This information is then shared with the laboratory that creates the veneers. In the interim, temporary veneers can be placed to allow you to become accustomed to the way they feel.

Second appointment

Once the permanent veneers are ready for placement, you will come back to the office for placement. Dr. Virtue will check the size, shape, and color to make sure your veneers are a perfect fit. Any necessary adjustments can be made before the veneers are bonded to the teeth.

Benefits of dental veneers

Veneers allow patients a minimally invasive way to correct minor alignment and spacing issues with their teeth. They are also extremely effective at masking cracks and chips. Porcelain is a translucent material that reflects light similarly to tooth enamel. Because the porcelain material can be matched to the color of the teeth, patients are left with a smile that is beautiful and natural looking. Patients who are interested in a whiter smile may want to seek teeth whitening services prior to the placement of dental veneers. Porcelain is resistant to stain and veneers require no special care beyond proper oral hygiene.
