Sometimes you may find minor chips and cracks on your teeth. These may occur as a result of regular wear, or they may be the result of an accident or minor injury. These chips and cracks, small as they may be, can have a major effect on the overall appearance of your smile. To treat them, you need something sturdy, versatile, and able to blend in with your other natural teeth.
To deal with minor chips and cracks, the team at our Charlotte practice will usually turn to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are affixed to the front facing parts of your teeth. The porcelain veneers are slightly translucent and will be color matched to blend with the rest of your smile, which means that while your smile will undergo a transformation, it will look completely natural.
In addition to addressing chipped teeth and cracked teeth, the team at our Charlotte practice can also use porcelain veneers to deal with major stains that teeth whitening cannot effectively treat and minor misalignments or unevenness off the teeth.
