If you are interested in a smile makeover, our dentist may recommend a cosmetic dental treatment known as veneers. Dental veneers are extremely thin, tooth-shaped shells that are typically made of high-quality porcelain. We can match the shade of porcelain to your original tooth color to blend in with the rest of your smile, or we can use a lighter shade to brighten your smile. These porcelain shells are custom made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. In this way, the veneers are used to correct cosmetic dental flaws and enhance the beauty of your smile. Dental veneers are very versatile and can be used on just a couple of teeth or on several teeth to give your smile a new, flawless aesthetic. Dr. Ellis K. List may recommend dental veneers in Durham, North Carolina, to give your smile a more even, uniform appearance. They can be used to correct a number of cosmetic imperfections, including:

  • Gaps and spaces in between teeth
  • Slightly misaligned teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Stained, spotted, or discolored teeth
  • Teeth that look too small or too pointed
  • Chipped, broken, or fractured teeth
  • Very worn teeth

We invite you to contact our dental office today to discover whether veneers are right for your smile!
