Are you tired of walking around with unattractive teeth? At Dental Home located in North Charleston, SC, we dedicate ourselves to helping you regain your lovely smile! We offer various types of veneers to patients looking to improve the appearance of their teeth.
Porcelain veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers, which replace original tooth enamel, together with an adhesive resin. In order to apply a veneer, a small amount of the tooth enamel must be removed, less than a millimeter. This step is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth. The light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer and then hardened using a special curing light.
A composite veneer is a minimal and non-invasive procedure done at Dental Home that can also improve the look of your teeth. It is the closest and more conservative approach to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers can generally correct small cosmetic defects, needing at least two appointments, sometimes three. After the teeth are prepared, the dentist bonds and sculpts the composite material using a color that is best for you. Next, a special light is used to harden the composite to bond it to your teeth. Then the veneers are smoothed and polished to look like natural teeth.
