Dental veneers can have many applications and can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain. Porcelain veneers, although more costly up front, can offer patients many benefits in the long run.
Charlotte cosmetic dentist Dr. Van Gurp recommends porcelain veneers for a variety of cosmetic and dental concerns:
- Damaged or broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth in the smile zone
- Misshapen teeth
- Worn teeth
- Discolored teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening treatment
Porcelain veneers provide a permanent solution that is natural looking, comfortable and durable. Porcelain veneers, made from a translucent material that reflects light like a natural tooth, are stain resistant and custom made to fit and function like a natural tooth.
Dr. Van Gurp will create a personalized treatment plan for the placement of dental veneers to correct a cosmetic concern or dental health issue. In many cases, Dr. Van Gurp will use CEREC technology to design and fabricate a porcelain restoration in a single visit.
