More about Veneers in Asheville
Veneers are a thin covering over the surface of the teeth. They are wafer-thin and made of a strong porcelain material to serve as a great substitute for the natural tooth enamel. When they are bonded to the teeth, they create a beautiful and natural-looking surface. The porcelain is a great option as it doesn’t stain like tooth enamel does.
With recent advancements in dental technology, these veneers can be made to be so thin they are undetectable. A small amount of enamel must be removed in order to fit the new surface and make it appear natural.
Veneers can improve color by restoring the white of the teeth. They also can improve size or shape of the teeth which may be worn down from teeth grinding. Alignment and spacing are also corrected with veneers as they can close small gaps in the teeth and make small corrections in alignment too.
A model of the teeth is created with wax veneers so that the patient can ensure they like the look and the fit. Once the patient agrees, the actual veneers are made. Temporary veneers are worn during the few weeks needed to create the permanent set. They are cemented to the teeth when they return from the dental laboratory.
