Porcelain veneers are made from a durable material that can be matched to the natural shade of your teeth or used to dramatically lighten your teeth. Our doctors at Mint Hill Dentistry have an eye for creating a perfect match for your porcelain veneer, giving you a dramatic change in your teeth.
The procedure is simple and is an effective way to create a bright smile now and for many years to come!
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin wafer-like casings that are bonded to the front of your teeth with a strong adhesive and are highly resistant to staining. Each veneer is custom shaped to your tooth and colored to match the surrounding teeth or most any shade that you would be interested in. They are a great option for people who do not have structural issues with their tooth and still have a strong root system, but need to fix the appearance.
While veneers are a cosmetic solution for many individuals, they can also protect your damaged teeth.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for porcelain veneers?
The doctors at Mint Hill Dentistry will inform you about the different options available and you can select from the many quality brands available at the office. People who are interested in veneers typically have:
- stained or discolored teeth.
- chipped teeth.
- teeth that are misaligned.
- teeth that have become resistant to at-home whitening treatments.
What is the process for receiving my veneers?
Upon your initial consultation, our team will evaluate your teeth and ask what you would like to improve. Once you decide to have the veneers completed, we will schedule an appointment to customize your veneer templates and you will leave with temporary veneers while your permanent ones are being created. Our practice and staff are here to ensure you are comfortable during every visit.
At the final appointment, we will replace the temporary veneers with bonded, beautiful porcelain veneers. The total process typically takes between three to four weeks from start to finish, resulting in a radiant smile.
