Porcelain Veneers in Charlotte, NC
Stains, chips, gaps, and other imperfections can diminish the look of your smile. Dr. Linger’s office in Charlotte, NC is dedicated to helping patients transform their smiles in as little as two visits to our office. Porcelain veneers offer a fast and effective method of smile transformation. In dentistry, veneers are thin tooth-shaped shells of porcelain that are custom-made to fit the front surfaces of teeth. Once bonded in place, veneers are able to correct dental problems like crooked, misaligned, or discolored teeth. If properly cared for, porcelain veneers can last many years.
Placing Porcelain Veneers
The first step is a digital smile transformation preview. Using a photograph of your smile, we will show how your new smile can look. Once you approve the smile transformation you want, we will use the photo preview, along with models of your mouth to create a smile template for your new veneers.
At your treatment visit, using a microscope and Dr. Linger’s Method™ of minimally invasive preparation, the enamel of the treated teeth are prepared for the veneers.
Next, an impression of your teeth is made for our ceramic artist to use for the custom creation of your porcelain veneers. Provisional Veneers are placed from your smile transformation template so you can see how your new smile will look immediately.
Your next visit is to try in your beautiful new veneers. Once you approve them, they are permanently bonded to your teeth. A follow-up appointment with Dr. Linger may be scheduled.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers may be the right treatment choice for you. Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a brighter and more symmetrical smile, free of stains, gaps, chips, and other flaws. The advantages of porcelain veneers are plentiful.
- Highly Durable: While veneers are thin, they are incredibly strong and durable when bonded to healthy tooth surfaces.
- Stain-Resistant: Porcelain veneers feature shiny, sealed surfaces that are highly resistant to stains caused by liquids, foods, and chemicals.
- Minimal Preparation: Using the Microscope, Dr. Linger’s Veneer Preparation is quick and conservative. Only a small amount of tooth enamel (if any) must be removed.
- Natural Looking: To the naked eye, porcelain veneers look much like your natural teeth. This is primarily due to the porcelain’s translucent quality.
