What are veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells that are designed to fit over the front of your natural teeth. Dental veneers are custom made and shaped to match your ideal smile. By covering the front of your teeth, dental veneers can correct a variety of cosmetic dental flaws and give your smile a beautiful new look. You can use a single dental veneer to correct one flawed tooth, or you can use multiple veneers to completely transform your smile. Because dental veneers in Greenville, North Carolina, are made of porcelain, they look natural and match the original color of your teeth. If you would like to use veneers to whiten your smile, our dentist can use a shade of porcelain that is lighter than your natural tooth color.

Do I need veneers?

Dental veneers might be a good choice for your smile if you are interested in achieving a more attractive, inviting look. Dr. Natalie B. McCarthy may recommend veneers in order to:

  • Fill in gaps and spaces between your teeth
  • Repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken
  • Lighten the color of darkened, stained, or spotted teeth
  • Give your smile a beautiful, uniform appearance
  • Correct slightly misaligned teeth
  • Improve irregularly shaped teeth
