When patients think of veneers, they may conjure images of too-white smiles that look out of place or fake. That old idea is really a false representation of what dental veneers can deliver when created by a skilled and experienced dentist like Dr. Scott Stephens.

Did you know that Dr. Stephens was an artist long before he became a dentist? His interest in art and biology is actually what led him to the dental profession. Each dental restoration is a tiny and very personal work of art that can add confidence and self-esteem to our patients’ lives.

Natural-Looking Dentistry

What this combination or art and science means for our patients is consistently beautiful and natural-looking smiles.

Porcelain veneers cover the front of your teeth and can completely redesign and repair a damaged, worn, or stained smile. Dr. Stephens designs veneers that look natural because of precision in shading and shaping of the porcelain.

Veneers can cover one damaged tooth or all your teeth that are visible when you smile. How many you will need to achieve a uniform appearance depends on the shape and width of your smile.

Protection from Sensitivity

If your teeth have sustained such severe wear that your dentin is exposed, you may even find that veneers provide relief from sensitivity. Severely worn teeth are also more likely to develop decay because the protective enamel has worn away. A veneer can seal your tooth and protect it. Of course, you still need to brush and floss!

We can also combine veneers with dental crowns to rebuild your smile and your bite so you can eat comfortably again. Many patients who have suffered from teeth grinding for years find relief and a new lease on life once their painful and sensitive teeth are restored with durable dental restorations.

If you would like to learn more about porcelain veneers and you live in the Fayetteville area, we welcome you to call and set up an appointment with Dr. Stephens. Your smile is important to us!
