You may notice that, over time, your smile has developed mild to moderate smile flaws such as cracks, chips, or stains. If you are tired of having a less-than-perfect smile that you are embarrassed to show, Dr. Michael B. Wilhite can help you fall back in love with your smile by providing custom-made dental veneers.

Dental veneers look like wafer-thin shells and can be made with porcelain or composite to match your tooth color. Though they require a few weeks to make, the final results will transform the appearance of your smile!

The first step to creating your dental veneers is to ensure they are the optimal choice for your smile. Dr. Michael B. Wilhite will perform a careful and thorough examination of each designated tooth to determine if there is sufficient enamel to allow a dental veneer to be mounted. Insufficient tooth enamel may mean that a porcelain dental crown is the better choice for that tooth.

If your smile has been approved for dental veneers, our team will create an impression of each detail of your teeth so that we can send the dental lab an accurate model of your smile to custom create your dental veneers. When the veneers are ready, we will contact you for the third and final step of the creation process. In order to make space for the veneers, Dr. Michael B. Wilhite will need to remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the teeth. Then, he will cement your dental veneers in place and send you home with your new smile.

You are welcome to learn more about dental veneers and their benefits by contacting Davidson Cosmetic & Family Dentistry at 704.987.2277 and scheduling a consultation with our dentist at our office in Davidson, North Carolina. We look forward to helping you create a smile you love!
