Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

Southpoint Crossing cosmetic dental and tooth implants

A well-designed porcelain veneer from Durham Dental Group does not make your tooth look larger – unless you want it to.

A veneer can correct many cosmetic dental problems and is a minimally invasive restoration. During the placement of some porcelain veneers, an extremely thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth.

If you have teeth with damage, discoloration, an irregular shape or minimal to moderate misalignment, you have several dental remedies to choose from. Don’t worry if you feel that veneers seem to have more cons than pros for you. You have options. We can analyze your smile, your needs, and your goals to develop a perfect plan.

Durham Dental Group offers the highest standard of dental care and the full spectrum of important services including:

emergency dentistry

kids dentistry

Life-like and Comfortable: Dentures in Durham

Millions of Americans wear full or partial dentures: fifty seven percent of those between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-four, according to national statistics. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, the Durham Dental Group can help.

Modern dentures are more life-like and comfortable than ever before, and help to improve your smile and overall appearance. Without them, facial muscles begin to sag. It also makes speaking and eating more difficult.

There are two basic types of dentures, both of which are provided by Durham Dental Group:

  • Full dentures. A full set of dentures can be ready and inserted right the remaining teeth are removed.
  • Partial dentures. Partials rest on a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth.

Dentures are custom-made for each patient. They’re made from impressions we take of your mouth. With full dentures, an acrylic base fits over your gums and matches them in color. The upper dentures have a base that covers the roof of the mouth, while the lowers are U-shaped to allow free movement of the tongue.

Dentures are subject to wear and tear, and need to be re-made, re-lined, or re-based periodically. How often that is needed varies from patient to patient. At very least, denture-wearers need to see the dentist for a checkup once a year.

The Durham Dental Group offer full and partial dentures to those who need them. We also provide dental implants, along with general and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment for a consultation today.
