The best dental veneers in Cary, NC

If you want a perfect smile, before you consider anything else, you need to consider dental veneers. Here at Stanley Dentistry, we are proud to offer porcelain veneers as part of our cosmetic dentistry branch. Dr. Bobbi has been giving patients the veneers of their dreams for over twenty-five years and is one of the most experienced veneers providers in the area. In just a few easy trips to our office, you’ll have the white, straight smile you’ve always wanted.

How do dental veneers work?

A lot of people have heard of veneers but not many know what they actually are. Although porcelain veneers are able to completely transform smiles, they’re actually quite small and thin. Unlike dental implants, porcelain veneers are just thin sheets of ceramic that bond directly to the front of the teeth. Your natural teeth remain underneath but the bright white veneers are what the world sees.

When bonded to the teeth, they are near impossible to detect and highly resistant to foods and drinks that stain the teeth. For strength and appearance, their similarity to healthy, white tooth enamel is unrivaled by other restorative options.

How long will it take to get dental veneers?

You can have your new smile with dental veneers in as little as two visits. During your first visit, we remove a thin layer of the tooth enamel and take a precise mold of your teeth in order to create the veneers. While your custom veneers are being made, you’ll wear temporary veneers to keep your smile looking great. Then, at your next visit, we apply your final veneers, completing your smile transformation.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of porcelain veneers?

Getting veneers is a big investment so we always want our patients to know everything about the procedure. At the moment, veneers are very popular because they can give almost anyone a perfect smile in just a few appointments. They’re durable, stain-resistant, and come in any shape, size, or shade you want. If you want a beautiful smile, veneers are perfect.

Of course, as with anything, they do come with a few cons. Veneers are not as permanent as dental implants nor do they cure any underlying disease. Putting a veneer on a decaying tooth won’t remove the decay.

If you’re getting traditional veneers (as opposed to no-prep veneers), Dr. Bobbi will have to shave off a very small amount of enamel in order to fit the veneer over the tooth. Dr. Bobbi removes as little as possible but if you ever decide to take the veneers off, that small gap will be noticeable. It’s important to keep that in mind when deciding whether to get traditional veneers or no-preps.

Am I a good fit for dental veneers?

What are the best alternatives to dental veneers?

If you don’t feel like veneers are the right choice for you, there are some other options that can give patients a better smile. For patients with severe decay, dental implants may be better. If finances are an issue, Snap-on-Smiles offer a temporary, removable smile that’s perfect for special occasions.

Frequently Asked Questions about

Dental Veneers


How can I improve my smile?

When it comes to improving your smile, there are a variety of options available that are safe and effective. The simplest way to improve your smile is with teeth whitening, however, there are other options. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth in order to change their shape, color, and overall appearance. Dental implants, on the other hand, are a permanent solution to missing teeth that involve surgically placing titanium screws in the jawbone and allowing healing around the implants. Invisalign is a revolutionary way to straighten your teeth without having to wear traditional metal braces, and it makes use of custom-made clear aligners that gradually move your teeth into the desired position. No matter which option you choose, it's important to talk to your dentist to see which one is best for you. With the right treatment plan, you can be sure that your smile will look and feel its best.

Is it a bad idea to place veneers over healthy teeth?

If your teeth aren’t healthy, placing veneers over them won’t help. Cavities will still grow and worsen, even with a veneer hiding them. Veneers are a cosmetic procedure that’s only meant to help transform the shape and shade of your smile. As with any cosmetic procedure, Dr. Bobbi will make sure your teeth are healthy before placing veneers.

How much do veneers cost?

The question everyone always wants to know: how much do veneers cost? Like almost everything in dentistry, there is absolutely no way to give a flat rate when it comes to veneers because they’re so customizable. If an office is giving a flat rate, they’re most likely allowing patients to leave their office with “one-size-fits-all” veneers that don’t look good on anyone. At Stanley Dentistry, we want to give every patient a set of veneers that works well for their unique mouth shape. This means that prices will naturally vary. Prices for veneers also depend on how many veneers the patient wants. Some people don’t really know how many veneers they need in order to get the smile they imagine. For the most accurate estimate on your veneers, come in for a consultation. We will go over every aspect of the procedure and layout a few different financing options.

Do veneers make teeth look bigger?

A lot of people who are interested in getting veneers fear that they’ll make their smiles look unnatural. At some offices, dentists force patients through a bad experience, giving them limited options and few chances to customize their veneers. Fortunately, that’s not how we do it here. At Stanley Dentistry, we strive to give you the shape, shade, and size veneer that you want. Our doctors and assistants will sit down with you to find out exactly what look you’re going for. At the end of the day, we want you to leave our office happy and confident. We do, however, take into consideration some things that patients don’t always think about. Dr. Bobbi has twenty-five years of experience in cosmetic dentistry and knows how to make each and every patient’s veneers look amazing. If Dr. Bobbi encourages you to go in a certain direction with your veneers, it’ll be for a good reason. We promise that post-procedure, you won’t have the stereotypical blocky veneer teeth. You’ll have the smile of your dreams.

Can you whiten veneers?

Veneers are not natural enamel so traditional methods of whitening won’t whiten your veneers. Actually, whitening toothpaste will cause staining. Whitening toothpaste polishes enamel but creates small scratches on veneers.
