How We Create Your New Smile
During the first visit, we will discuss your smile concerns and fill out an evaluation. We will consider all aspects of your smile, taking into consideration the shape and color of your teeth, as well as your facial characteristics such as eye and hair color and skin tone.
We will create temporary veneers from digital impressions that let you “test drive” your smile. Then, those impressions are sent to the talented team at our dental lab to craft your permanent veneers.
There will be a final fitting with your permanent veneers. When you are happy with the way they look, we securely bond the veneers over your teeth. Your new smile is ready to shine!

Have Questions About Porcelain Veneers?
- Do porcelain veneers need special care?
Porcelain veneers don’t need any special care beyond how you would normally care for your teeth.
We do recommend that you follow an excellent dental hygiene routine, including:
- Brushing and flossing twice a day
- Regularly seeing your dentist for check-ups
- Using a non-abrasive toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush
You can protect your veneers further by not using them to chew on hard objects such as ice, pens, hard candy, and hard nuts.
- Why should I whiten my teeth before I get veneers?
Your porcelain veneers will be custom-tinted to match the coloring of your surrounding teeth.
If you were to have a teeth whitening procedure after your veneers treatment, your teeth and veneers would no longer have matching shades of whiteness.
We often recommend our patients who want whiter teeth have a teeth whitening treatment before we begin their veneers treatment. That way their natural teeth and porcelain veneers for Durham, NC will blend together beautifully.
- Do I have to have veneers for both my top and bottom teeth?
No, you don’t. That’s the beauty of veneers. You can enhance only the teeth you want.
Many people choose to use porcelain veneers on just their top front teeth since these are the ones that are most visible to others when smiling or talking.
Our team will give you a comprehensive estimate of the cost for your veneers and we will work with you to make easy and convenient financial arrangements for payment.
- Will getting porcelain veneers hurt?
Generally, our patients experience very little, if any, discomfort with this treatment.
We use local anesthetic during the placement of your temporary and permanent veneers to ensure your comfort. When we place a large number of veneers, some patients occasionally experience temporary gum soreness and treat it with over-the-counter medication.
During your treatment, we will keep you comfortable with cushioning neck pillows and cozy blankets while you watch your favorite movies.
