If you would like to improve the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth, Dr. Derek C. Barnes may recommend dental veneers in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom made to cover the front of your teeth to improve their appearance. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to repair:

• Discolored teeth
• Worn down teeth
• Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
• Slightly crooked or crowded teeth
• Irregularly shaped teeth
• Gaps and spaces between teeth

Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains and mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth better than resin veneers. However, resin veneers are thinner than porcelain veneers, so less tooth enamel removal is required to prepare for placement. Ask our dentist which veneer material is right for you.

Dental veneers have many advantages. They look like your natural teeth because our dentist selects a shade that matches that of your smile. Our dentist can select a shade that makes your teeth appear lighter. Your gums will tolerate porcelain veneers well, so there will be minimal discomfort after placement.
