At Alliance, we are happy to provide veneers Cary NC patients will be proud to wear. When you visit our Cary NC dentist office, your dentist will be happy to discuss all of the benefits and precautions of veneers before you decide to move forward with this cosmetic dentistry procedure. However, we also aim to provide information via this blog. Recently we discussed some important facts about veneers Cary NC patients should know. Now we want to focus on myths we wish to dispel:
Myth#1: You can always tell when someone has them. Certainly there was a time when we might see a celebrity or even a friend with blazing white “chiclet” teeth and immediately think veneers. However, there have been many advances in technology since the early days. These advances have allowed our Cary NC veneer specialists— and cosmetic dentists around the world– to create thinner, more refined, natural looking porcelain fronts. It’s not unlikely you’ve seen one of our patients wearing our veneers around Cary, NC and didn’t realize. Making your veneers less detectable, so that people see a beautiful smile, not your veneers.
Myth#2: Veneers are painful. During the procedure, your Cary NC dentist will provide you with a local anesthetic, to ensure your procedure is comfortable and pain free. Local anesthesia also reduces the side effects and dizziness that can sometimes occur with general anesthesia. You may, however, experience some tooth sensitivity while you wear temporary veneers. Once these are replaced with your permanent veneers, however, the sensitivity will disappear.
Myth#3: Your dentist will have to cut down your whole tooth.While yes, obtaining veneers in Cary NC does mean you will have to lose some natural tooth enamel, it is typically only a half millimeter that is cut away– sometimes less. This is to ensure the veneers sit neatly on your teeth and give a natural appearance. Your veneers will need a strong and sturdy foundation for bonding, so maintaining your natural, healthy teeth is important.
