porcelain veneers for teeth and dental veneer services with a Cary dentist Apex NC and Morrisville
Porcelain veneers are small, natural looking tooth coverings that are made to look like your natural tooth. They can be an easy solution for a variety of common dental problems, including teeth that have become damaged or cracked, or have been stained from a variety of foods or certain medications. A dental veneer is applied directly to the surface of your tooth, giving you a natural looking and stunning new smile. Dr. Acton has the expertise to determine if porcelain veneers for teeth are the right choice for you if you are in the Cary – Morrisville – Apex, NC area, and give you a gorgeous, healthy new smile.

Porcelain veneers are commonly recommended for:

  • A Chipped Tooth | As you well know, accidents happen. If you’ve accidentally chipped a tooth while eating or by some other means, porcelain veneers for teeth are the ideal solution to give you back your beautiful, confident smile.
  • A Cracked Tooth | Over the years teeth can become weak, eventually resulting in a crack. Dr. Acton can apply a dental veneer to your damaged tooth to provide strength and restore beauty … while improving your overall dental health.
  • Gaps in Teeth | If you have extra spacing between your teeth from either shifting or the loss of a tooth, porcelain veneers for teeth can quickly close up those unsightly gaps.
  • Teeth that are Crooked | You may not have been born with the perfect smile, but veneers for teeth can change that in almost an instant. Porcelain veneers can be an excellent alternative to traditional braces, which can be painful and take up to two years before the treatment is complete.
  • Teeth that are Misshapen | A beautiful, even, and symmetrical smile can easily be achieved with porcelain veneers. At Cary Family Dental, we can give you an incredible smile using this beautiful and natural looking alternative.

Our dental veneer patients throughout the Morrisville, Cary and Apex NC area love the difference their porcelain veneers have made in their lives. Call our office today to set up a dental veneer consultation with Dr. Acton and find out how porcelain veneers can give you an amazing, natural smile!

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

What material is in a veneer?
Veneers are made of very thin tooth-colored porcelain.
What are the benefits of having a veneer?
  • Veneers can change the size, shape and color of teeth.
  • Veneers are porcelain and will not stain.
  • Veneers remove minimal tooth structure and are the most conservative porcelain restoration.
What are the risks of having a veneer?
The risks to the veneer are:

  • Preparation for a veneer permanently alters the tooth underneath the veneer.
  • If the cement seal at the edge of the veneer is lost, decay may form at the juncture of the veneer and tooth.
  • Preparing for and placing a veneer can irritate the tooth and cause post-operative sensitivity which may last for up to 3 Months.

The risks to the tooth are:

  • Porcelain may chip over time.
  • If the tooth needs a root canal after the veneer is permanently cemented, the procedure may fracture the veneer and the veneer may need to be replaced.
  • Bite problems may lead to the veneer chipping or breaking.
What are the alternatives to veneers?
Alternatives to placing a veneer are to either leave the tooth as is or to place a composite restoration. Composite restorations remove decay but are limited because they will stain more and do not change the size and color of teeth as well as veneers.
Are there any post treatment limitations once I have a veneer?
  • Porcelain on a veneer may have a good color match with adjacent natural teeth when the veneer is placed but less of a match as your natural teeth age.
  • A veneer may chip or break if used for abnormal activities (e.g. biting finger nails, opening bottles).
