While chronic dental stains are a common cosmetic complaint, they are not the only thing that can affect the appearance of your teeth. Sometimes one or more teeth can develop with tooth enamel that doesn’t perfectly match the surrounding teeth.

In a situation like this, you might consider setting up an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Laris Milligan. After assessing the health and structure of your teeth he can present you with some treatment options. Many people with discolored tooth enamel may choose to have the facial surfaces of their front teeth improved by dental veneers.

This type of cosmetic dental work can be created from either dental grade porcelain or composite resin. Each dental veneer can match the natural shape of tooth in need of restoration.

When your dental veneers are ready, you will need to return to our office to have them installed. The process involves our dentist to carefully removing a minor amount of the natural tooth enamel from the face of each tooth intended for a dental veneer. Once the surfaces have been prepared he can use a strong dental adhesive to cement each dental veneer in place.

If you are in the Wilmington, North Carolina, area and you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, you should call 910-799-5000 to explore the cosmetic restorations available at Laris W. Milligan.
