Porcelain Veneers In Kinston, NC
Carlyle Dental offers porcelain veneers for residents living in Kinston, Goldsboro, Greenville and the surrounding areas of North Carolina.
Porcelain veneers are a type of restorative material placed over the surface of one or more teeth, which improves their appearance. The veneers can protect damaged or fractured teeth, mask a discolored or broken tooth, or align teeth that are uneven or not uniform in size or shape.
Orthodontic problems can also be improved through the application of veneers (“Instant Ortho”). Porcelain veneers are a viable solution for those who reside in Kinston, NC and Greenville, NC, primarily due to their durability and long-lasting track record. They are stain resistant, natural in look and feel and will give you a more attractive smile.
How to Know If Porcelain Veneers Are Right for You
Residents in Kinston, NC and Greenville, NC are good candidates for porcelain veneers if they have good dental health without extensive decay, gum disease or severe misalignment. An initial consultation at Carlyle Dental is completed, in which Dr. Carlyle will perform a thorough examination of gums, teeth, and bite, in order to assess your medical health. X-rays and digital pictures are used to analyze the teeth and to map the veneers, and your expectations regarding the outcome will be clarified. Decisions regarding color, shape, size and style of veneer are made at this time, as well.
Before the veneers are applied, the enamel on the front of the tooth is trimmed back or adjusted, and may involve local anesthesia or freezing. An impression of each tooth is taken at this time, so a proper veneer can be crafted. Temporaries are used to protect and cover the prepared teeth in the interim, which will help prevent tooth sensitivity, as well as give you a preview of how the porcelain veneer will look once permanently implanted. Once the veneers are ready, the teeth are cleaned with an antibacterial rinse, and are etched and treated to ensure a good bond. Individual veneers, usually about the thickness of an eggshell, are then attached to each tooth and glued into place. The process is finalized when the veneers are cured with a special light.
Porcelain Veneer Maintenance
Just like your natural teeth, porcelain veneers require proper maintenance such as daily brushing and flossing, regular dental visits, and good overall dental hygiene. If properly cared for, your porcelain veneers will last for a very long time.
