Refresh Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers

Over time, the appearance of our smiles can diminish, leaving teeth stained and worn down. It’s nearly impossible to avoid age-related wear in teeth, but it is possible to achieve a stunning smile again.

With porcelain veneers, you can conceal minor cosmetic imperfections and regain confidence in your smile. At Capstone Dental, Dr. Steven Yang is dedicated to helping patients restore their healthy smiles. Read on to learn how you can benefit from this treatment.

 

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that can quickly restore your smile’s appearance. They can also help prevent tooth decay by supporting the structure of your teeth.

This durable restoration can be customized to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth for a seamless blend with your smile. Veneers can even last between 10 and 30 years before needing to be replaced if you practice good oral hygiene.

 

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers come with a host of benefits, including:

  • Stain Resistant: Unlike natural teeth, veneers won’t lose their color over time. However, this also means they’re resistant to tooth whitening treatments, so it’s best to schedule one beforehand if you want a whiter smile.
  • Short, Minimally Invasive Procedure: This procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed in as few as two visits to our Charlotte dental office.
  • Durable & Long-Lasting: Veneers can last between 10 and 30 years if well maintained. By brushing and flossing twice a day, along with biannual visits to our Charlotte office for routine cleanings, your veneers can stay in great shape for years to come.
  • Natural Look & Feel: Dr. Yang will customize your veneers to match the shape, size, and color of your surrounding teeth. No one will be able to tell they’re restorations.

 

What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

Porcelain veneers are a great way to conceal minor dental imperfections. Dr. Yang may recommend veneers to patients whose teeth are:

  • Misaligned or misshapen
  • Cracked, chipped, or broken
  • Worn-down or weakened
  • Stained or discolored

However, veneers may not be the most effective treatment for every patient. During your initial consultation, Dr. Yang can determine if veneers are right for you. He’ll also discuss other treatment options if necessary.

 

Porcelain Veneer Process

Initial Consultation

Your journey to a stunning smile begins with an initial consultation with Dr. Yang. He’ll perform a thorough examination of your teeth to look for any underlying oral health problems. This will help him determine if porcelain veneers are right for you. 

Creating Your Veneers

It’s essential to address any oral health problems beforehand to ensure a successful veneer treatment. Once this has been done, Dr. Yang will begin by taking a detailed impression of your teeth. He’ll send this to a dental lab, where they’ll create your custom restoration.

Placing Your Veneers

Once we receive your personalized veneers, you’ll then return to our Charlotte office. Dr. Yang will prepare your teeth by removing a small portion of the enamel. This will create room for your veneers to fit comfortably and look natural.

Dr. Yang will adhere a bonding agent to your teeth before placing the veneers to ensure they’re securely attached. Once the veneers properly bond with your teeth, you’ll leave our Charlotte office with a beautiful new smile!

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Does getting veneers hurt?

Receiving veneers is a quick and painless process. Many patients require little to no anesthetic, but you can discuss your preference with Dr. Yang at your initial consultation.

After the numbness fades, you may experience mild discomfort in the form of sore gums or hot and cold sensitivity. You can use a cold compress to manage soreness and over-the-counter pain relievers for any pain.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

While porcelain veneers are a durable solution, they aren’t permanent. Veneers can last 10 to 30 years before needing to be replaced. For the best results, it’s essential to brush and floss twice a day.

You should also keep up with your biannual visits to our Charlotte office for regular cleanings and exams. This will not only keep your veneers in good condition but your overall oral health, as well.

What if my veneer gets damaged or falls off?

If your veneer sustains damage or falls off, don’t attempt to fix or reattach it. This could result in further damage and could set your treatment back significantly. Instead, place the veneer in a small plastic bag and contact our Charlotte office right away at (980) 202-5696.

Dr. Yang will assess your situation and either repair or replace your veneer. Don’t forget to bring the veneer with you to your appointment.

Minimal-prep veneers can repair and enhance in much the same way traditional porcelain veneers do – by creating a brand new surface for your teeth. They can cover imperfections, whiten your smile, and reshape irregularities, but because they are so thin, they require much less preparation of your teeth. That means you keep more of your own, natural enamel while spending less time in the chair. Our minimal-prep tooth veneers come from two of the most respected manufacturers in the industry – Lumineers and Durathins – for the ultimate in stability and beauty.

Some people have large gums all of their lives. Others experience gum overgrowth as a result of medications or illness. Whatever the cause, a gummy smile can make you feel self-conscious and cover your remarkable teeth hiding underneath. We have a simple procedure — gum recontouring — to sculpt away excess gum tissue and give your smile a new shape and radiance. We use a soft-tissue laser so there is no need for cutting or stitches. In fact, the laser makes procedures so comfortable and fast, that some people do not require novocaine during the procedure.

Composite bonding is the perfect solution for smaller areas that need a quick fix or to correct and repair damage or staining on kids and teens. It also provides a lesser expensive and extensive treatment option for adults. From the tiniest chips and cracks to creating a whole new surface for your tooth or teeth, composite dental bonding is a beautiful, but affordable choice for many of Charlotte’s cosmetic issues. Dr. Yang simply blends the composite material to match the shading of your surrounding teeth or to brighten your smile then applies it directly to your teeth, sculpting and shaping it to perfection. You will leave with a brand new smile in just one visit!

Are the edges of your teeth a little jagged? Do you dislike the pointiness of some teeth? Do you wish your smile was just a little more even? Our tooth recontouring gently and artfully smoothes and shapes your enamel. The procedure is generally pain-free and usually doesn’t require novocaine. Even better, it is fast and should only require one, easy visit to our Charlotte dental office.

A white smile can make a dramatic change in your appearance and can even make slightly crooked or irregular teeth look closer to perfect. It takes years of stains and discoloration off your teeth, brightens your whole face, and makes you feel more confident. We offer both in-office and take-home options to perfectly suit your needs. Our in-office method – KöR Deep Bleaching – takes as little as an hour and can whiten your smile up to ten amazing shades. No other dental product has ever been ranked as high as KöR tooth bleaching. In fact, it is so effective, it works even on tetracycline-stained teeth. Its whitening reputation and power, as well as its legendary low sensitivity, are why we chose this system for our Charlotte patients. If you prefer to whiten your teeth on your own time — before bed, while commuting, or watching TV — our take-home, Treswhite system will get your teeth their brightest. Just fill your custom whitening trays with the prescription gel, pop them on your teeth, and relax. Your smile will reach ideal whiteness in about a week.
