South Charlotte Dentists Create Perfect Smiles with Dental Veneers

By SEO Admin on March 05, 2014

A great smile is an investment that will pay off every time that you look in the mirror. If you look at your teeth and notice some imperfections such as cracks or chips then there is a way to fix them and create a smile that will make you proud to show it off. And if you are lucky enough to be living in Charlotte, NC you should check out Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney's cosmetic dentists, Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix, for taking care of your dental problems.

In South Charlotte you will discover the best dentists for veneers who are ready to take care of your needs in the quest for a great smile and perfect looking teeth. Dental veneers can correct a variety of issues with cosmetic dentistry and the process is much simpler than investing in dental implants.

Dental veneers are ideal if you have uneven tooth alignment which can occur from normal activity or grinding your teeth habitually. Maybe you have a genetic condition known as a diastema or gap in your front teeth. You can correct that with a surgical procedure called a frenectomy or much simpler, you can be fitted with veneers and not have to experience the pain and discomfort involved in frenectomy procedures.

Our South Charlotte cosmetic dentists is also capable of enhancing the color of your teeth permanently using veneers. The tooth-colored porcelain is natural looking and durable enough to protect your teeth while giving you a beautiful smile. You are not destroying your teeth as is possible with other procedures and by working with Dr. Betancourt and Dr. Pinnix for veneers you are assuring that the results will last for quite a while, giving you your moneys worth for the work that you have done.

What a lot of people dont realize is that tooth enamel is the hardest substance on the human body, but it can be worn away by smoking, drinking and eating certain types of food. Once the enamel is gone there is really no way to ever get it back but you can simulate it by taking advantage of cosmetic dentistry services and having porcelain veneers placed over your own teeth.

Veneers = Perfect Smile
The important thing to remember is that a perfect smile is attainable. With dental veneers you can improve what nature has already given you. And quite easily at that.
