Veneers are a revolutionary smile makeover treatment that allows a cosmetic dentist to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. However, not all veneers are created equal, and patients should be particular when choosing a dentist to perform a veneers procedure. When you visit a skilled Raleigh cosmetic dentist, we strive to create superior aesthetics, and use your smile goals and oral health to determine whether veneers may be right for you. We offer porcelain veneers, as well as technologically advanced LUMINEERS® by Cerinate®.
Choosing the Right Cosmetic Dentist is Key
When deciding on a cosmetic dentist to create your veneers, there are several factors to consider, such as background and experience, smile results, and care and concern to ensure the best results possible.
Background and Experience
Many dentists offer veneers, but results can differ greatly with background and experience. At Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, cosmetic specialists Dr. Raymond M. Ferri and Dr. Patrick Lawrence bring years of professional experience and elite training to their veneers procedures. Both dentists are members of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, and the Wake County Dental Society. Dr. Ferri and Dr. Lawrence are also both graduates of the esteemed Ross Nash Esthetic Epitome Courses for cosmetic dentists.
Be sure that you’re going to get the results you desire. We feature a smile gallery that highlights an array of patients before and after their dental procedures, so that you can view the superior results Dr. Ferri and Dr. Lawrence have achieved for our Raleigh porcelain veneers patients.
Care and Concern
Patients are our priority at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. It’s important to choose a dentist who values your smile goals. If we determine that veneers aren’t the best treatment for your specific dental needs, we offer a range of the latest in cosmetic dental procedures to ensure that your smile is natural-looking and healthy.
What are Veneers?
Commonly crafted from porcelain, veneers are thin, versatile sheaths that cover the front surface and biting edges of a tooth. Porcelain veneers can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues, including teeth that are:
- Worn down
Advantages of Veneers
There are many benefits offered by veneers. The treatment is relatively quick and easy, but yields incredibly natural, long-lasting results. During a veneers treatment, Dr. Ferri and Dr. Lawrence prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of surface material, and then molds of the teeth are taken so that veneers can be custom-crafted for your mouth. Once the veneers are ready, usually in a week or two, each veneer will be bonded in place and then sculpted and shined for a beautiful new smile. We also offer LUMINEERS® by Cerinate®, a new advancement in veneers treatment. LUMINEERS® are even thinner than traditional veneers, and can be attached to a patient’s natural teeth with no enamel removal required.
