What are Dental Veneers?
One fast way to improve your smile and hide chipped, crooked, stained, or decayed teeth is by using dental veneers at City of Oaks Dental. Cosmetic veneers are thin covers made with porcelain or composite materials that can be secured to the front of your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. Offering personalized and minimal-prep veneers, Dr. Vivian Throop can aid in improving the size, color, length, or shape of the teeth. With the iTero Element™ 5D intraoral scanner, our digital technology digitally scans impressions for veneers. Schedule an appointment in our Raleigh, NC office to find out more information about veneers and decide if they're right for your needs.
What are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers can cover a range of dental imperfections that make you self-conscious about your smile. There are many reasons patients choose veneers for their smile makeover, including:
- Durable: Materials like porcelain are very strong and can last for years when they are properly cared for.
- Natural appearance: Veneers are made to match the color of your natural enamel, giving you a seamless-looking smile.
- Ease of application: Treatment requires minimal preparation, with many patients achieving their dream smile in just one appointment.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate for Dental Veneers?
Ideal candidates for veneers deal with one or more cosmetic oral problems they want to correct. Often, these issues include chips, cracks, stains, gaps between teeth, unevenness, or wear. Candidates must have good overall oral health. They cannot have periodontal conditions and must not grind their teeth. During your consultation at City of Oaks Dental, Dr, Throop will inspect your teeth and gums, while evaluating your dental history to confirm that you can enjoy the smile-rejuvenating benefits of veneers.
How Do Dental Veneers Work?
Once you have decided on your unique treatment plan, Dr. Throop will take digital or physical impressions of your teeth to create your custom veneers, which will be made from high-quality porcelain or composite material. As soon as your dental veneers are ready, Dr. Throop will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This both creates room for the dental veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts a long time. When your veneers are bonded, Dr. Throop will make minor adjustments, including filling gaps between teeth with dental laminates so that your veneers fit well.
What to Expect After Dental Veneers
Some sensitivity may be felt in the gums and teeth after dental treatment, but any side effects should quickly subside. Our team at City of Oaks Dental can provide a full set of instructions and guidelines to ensure your veneers stay in excellent condition for years. Brush and floss twice per day to maintain your dental veneers and continue to attend regular examinations with Dr. Throop for monitoring. With quality dental veneers and proper oral care, you can achieve a beautiful smile that lasts for many years to come!

Dental Veneers FAQs
How should I clean my veneers?
Will porcelain veneers damage my teeth?
What happens after the lifespan of my veneers is over?
Do dental veneers require special care?
Dental veneers do not require special care beyond regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. It's important to avoid habits that may damage the veneers, such as biting or chewing on hard objects, using teeth as tools, or grinding or clenching the teeth. Additionally, wearing a mouthguard during sports or teeth grinding can help protect the veneers from damage.
Can dental veneers be whitened or bleached?
Unlike natural teeth, dental veneers cannot be whitened or bleached with traditional teeth whitening methods. However, veneers are resistant to staining and discoloration, so they typically maintain their color over time. If a veneer becomes discolored or stained, it may need to be replaced to restore its appearance. It's important to discuss any concerns about the color of veneers with our team at City of Oaks Dental, who can recommend the most appropriate treatment option.
Can dental veneers be repaired if damaged?
In some cases, dental veneers can be repaired if they become chipped, cracked, or damaged. Minor repairs may involve smoothing out rough edges or polishing the surface of the veneer. However, more extensive damage may require replacement of the entire veneer. It's important to contact our team in Raleigh, NC if you notice any damage to your veneers, as prompt treatment can help prevent further complications.
