Are you troubled by chips, cracks, gaps or stains on your teeth? Would you prefer to have straighter, evener teeth, but can’t stand the idea of going through a long orthodontic process?
Porcelain veneers can correct a wide variety of common aesthetic teeth problems and can be used alone or with other cosmetic or restorative-dentistry procedures. If your teeth are discolored, chipped or misaligned, they can be transformed into a whiter, brighter, beautifully designed smile with porcelain veneers.

How Porcelain Veneers Work
Porcelain veneers, also known as dental laminates, are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to your teeth and used to correct imperfections and rebuild strength and durability. They are custom-made with premium porcelain that looks natural, blends beautifully with the surrounding teeth, and is resistant to staining or discoloration.
The veneers procedure can usually be completed within two visits at our Charlotte office. During your first appointment, Dr. Broome in Charlotte, NC will remove part of your enamel to make room for the porcelain. After the enamel is removed, an impression of your teeth is made and then sent to a dental service lab. On your next visit, your custom-made veneers will be tried out to make sure they fit just right. After you and Dr. Broome feel comfortable with your results, he will affix them to your teeth with a cement-like paste. You will leave the office that day with a new and beautiful smile.
Veneers offer our Charlotte, NC guests a quick and effective way to improve years of damage or fix a recent chip or crack in a tooth. Dr. Broome will use a skillful eye and dental mastery to create the most comfortable and natural looking porcelain veneers.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Because porcelain veneers are custom-made for each individual, every patient is able to have a specialized mouth makeover. Veneers are stain-resistant and, unlike crowns, require minimal tooth surface removal. These dental laminates can be made to be more translucent and allow more of the natural tooth to show, therefore providing a more natural appearance or they can be designed to mask discolored or dark teeth. Each one is a custom designed work of art that mimics the characteristics of the natural enamel.
Natural Looking Teeth
Dental laminates look natural and can last between 10 and 20 years with proper oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist. At Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Broome has many patients who leave the office with dental laminates as a long-term solution to correcting even the most stubborn smiles.
