Your smile is the first thing people notice about you, so you want it to look its best. Unfortunately, most of us have features that we would like to change about our smiles. Dr. Denise Perrotta offers veneers in Winston Salem, NC, to get the perfect smile.

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers are sometimes called laminates, and they consist of thin pieces of porcelain that your dentist uses to cover up different types of tooth imperfections. Veneers are custom made for every patient and attached to the front surface of one or more teeth. They are bonded to a tooth using special dental cement.

The Benefits of Veneers

Veneers can fix a variety of issues to give you a beautiful smile. Some of their benefits include:

● Whitening discolored teeth that have been damaged due to trauma or discolored from the use of certain medications and will not respond to traditional teeth whitening methods
● Covering imperfections like chips, cracks, and misshapen teeth
● Filling slight gaps between teeth instead of more invasive orthodontic treatments to give you a straighter, gap-free smile

Common Assumptions About Dental Veneers in Winston Salem, NC

Veneers look unnatural- veneers are custom-made to fit your smile. While they improve the appearance of a tooth, they are tinted with care, so they don’t look unnaturally bright. Your dentist will also remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel from the surface of the tooth, so the veneers sit flush with the rest of your smile and don’t stick out or look too big.

Veneers will stain easily- Dental veneers are actually made of stain-resistant materials that closely resemble your natural tooth enamel. As an added bonus, these materials don’t decay the way a natural tooth does.
