Dental Veneer Overview with Complete Care Dental:
Reasons why Greenville clients choose veneers:
Our Greenville dentist may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Other procedures do not always take care of your cosmetic concerns. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:
- Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
- Whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored
- Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
- Correct slightly crooked teeth
- Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn or fractured
- Improve your confidence and self-esteem

Dental Veneer Process:
The dental veneer placement process at Complete Care Dental may include removing a small amount of enamel, depending on the type of veneer. Enamel is the protective outer layer of the tooth. A mold of your teeth is then taken and sent off to be created. Once the veneer is placed, it is permanent. They cannot be removed. This makes them a great long-term solution to bothersome cosmetic concerns. Specifically, those who don’t want other dental treatments that are more repetitive or take longer. Treatments such as teeth whitening, braces or retainers.
Type of Veneers:
Resin-based composite veneers:
- You may have a follow up appointment after your veneers have been placed. This helps ensure that the veneer has not moved and isn’t causing any pain.
- You do no need to avoid certain foods or beverages after your placement.
