Smiling man


No one is born with a perfect smile, and perfect hygiene habits can still fall short of giving us the smile we've always wanted.

Using veneers, Dr. Jeffrey S. Kearney can conceal minor cosmetic flaws and give you the beautiful smile you've always desired. 

Let’s take a look at how veneers placed by our Cary, NC, dentist can enhance your smile.

Find One Treatment for All Your Goals

If you want a beautiful smile, you don't need to seek a series of dental procedures. With veneers, you can find everything you need in a single package. To learn more about how veneers can help you achieve your goals, contact our Cary dental office.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence by concealing various cosmetic flaws. They are thin, custom-crafted pieces of porcelain that are placed over the front of each affected tooth. Veneers look like your natural teeth and can withstand the pressures of chewing. To prepare a tooth to receive a veneer, we'll safely remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the tooth surface. This allows the veneer to lay flush with surrounding teeth and avoid looking bulky or unnatural.

Benefits of Our Porcelain Veneers 

Many of our Cary dental patients choose veneers to improve their smile because they're:   


While most other cosmetic treatments target a specific problem, veneers can address multiple issues one tooth at a time. 


Dental porcelain can last 10-20 years with proper care. That's far longer than bonding, a procedure that addresses similar concerns.


Porcelain absorbs and reflects light like your natural teeth and is crafted to match the color and dimensions of surrounding teeth. As a result, our porcelain veneers will have others admiring your beautiful smile, not your dental work.


By concealing cosmetic flaws, our porcelain veneers can give you the beautiful smile you've always wanted and improve your self-image. 


Despite our best efforts, our teeth can become stained or discolored over time. Luckily, porcelain resists stains, so your bright smile can last with proper care.

Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?

While veneers can be a great solution to cosmetic issues for most dental patients, others may not be the best candidates for treatment. When determining whether porcelain veneers are right for you, Dr. Kearney will consider your:

Oral Health

Veneer patients should have good oral health, with no active cavities, gum disease, or other issues. We can place veneers when you have recovered from the procedures needed to resolve these issues. 

Tobacco Use 

Your veneers need a healthy smile foundation, and tobacco is harmful to your oral health. Additionally, you can expect that tobacco will stain your veneers and enamel. For the best-looking results, we recommend you drop the habit before receiving veneers.

Enamel Condition

Since veneers require a small layer of enamel to be removed, you need enough enamel to accommodate the veneer without compromising the stability of the tooth. As a result, patients with thin or worn layers of enamel may not be good candidates for veneers.

Veneer Treatment Timeline

Our Cary practice can customize your veneers to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. Though each of our veneer treatments is completely personalized, the general process can look something like this:

Veneers Consultation

Regardless of the treatment, it will always start with a consultation with our dentist. Dr. Kearney will listen to your goals and recommend treatments according to the results you would like to see. We will then discuss any proposed treatments in-depth so you understand all aspects of the procedure before choosing it.

Enamel Preparation

If you're a good candidate for veneers, we will schedule an appointment to prepare your teeth. During this stage, a thin layer of enamel will be removed to make room for your veneers. Dr. Kearney will then take mess-free digital impressions of the treated teeth using the advanced iTero scanner.

Veneer Crafting 

We will send the impressions of your teeth to our partner lab, where technicians will craft your custom veneers using premium dental porcelain. Your dental veneers should arrive for the final fitting in around two to three weeks. 

Temporary Veneers

While waiting for your custom veneers, you'll need to wear a temporary set of veneers to protect your treated teeth. Temporary veneers allow you to return to your daily routine during the waiting period, but you should try to avoid eating hard or sticky foods. Dr. Kearney will provide instructions for taking care of your temporary veneers. 

Veneer Placement 

Once your permanent veneers have arrived, we will remove the temporary set and test the fit of your custom veneers. After you are satisfied with the fit and appearance of your veneers, Dr. Kearney will secure them in place. This treatment requires no recovery. You can begin enjoying your new smile right away.

Not Sure About Veneers? Consider Dental Bonding

Though it's possible for our dentist to make just a single veneer, you have another option for small imperfections: dental bonding. Essentially, Dr. Kearney can apply a small amount of tooth-colored resin to your tooth to conceal minor imperfections like cracks, chips, or discoloration. Once it's in position, Dr. Kearney will cure the resin so it stays in place.

While this procedure doesn't have the lifespan or comprehensive ability of veneers, it is faster and more affordable. We can guide you through the benefits of both treatments during your dentistry consultation.
