When wishing for a perfect smile, many may think that only Hollywood stars can have the trademark straight and sparkling white smile. However, this is no longer the case. At Kleinheinz Dentistry, we offer cosmetic enhancements known as dental veneers for those in the Charlotte, NC, area. With dental veneers, you can transform and rejuvenate your smile, finally achieving a dazzling white smile that you can show off to everyone around you.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are like facades for your teeth. They are custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can change your teeth’ color, shape, size, or length, effectively hiding imperfections that have plagued your smile and self-esteem.

The Dental Veneer Process

Veneers are custom-made for each patient. The process, though meticulous, is a blend of art and science that results in a natural-looking, durable solution. Here’s a brief overview of what the veneering process involves:

  • Consultation and Planning: Like most dental procedures, you will begin your journey to dental veneers with a consultation. Dr. Jeffery Kleinheinz will discuss what you’re hoping to achieve with veneers and assess whether they’re the best option for you. This may involve taking X-rays and impressions of your teeth.
  • Preparation: To prepare your tooth for a veneer, Dr. Kleinheinz will remove about half a millimeter of enamel from its surface, an amount nearly equal to the thickness of the veneer to be added. This step ensures a proper fit and natural look after the veneer is applied.
  • Bonding: Dr. Kleinheinz will temporarily place the veneer on your tooth to examine its fit and color. He may repeatedly remove and trim the veneer to achieve the proper fit. Next, he will clean, polish, and etch your tooth to strengthen your bond. He will then apply a special cement to the veneer, which he will place on your tooth. Once appropriately positioned, Dr. Kleinheinz will use a special light beam to activate chemicals in the cement, hardening it quickly.
  • Final Steps: After the veneer ultimately bonds to your tooth, Dr. Kleinheinz will remove any excess material, make final adjustments as necessary, and polish your other teeth.


The process usually requires two visits—one to prepare the tooth and make a mold and another to place the veneer once it has been fabricated to match the natural tooth structure.

Aftercare for Your Veneers

After your veneer placement, Dr. Kleinheinz will provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions. These typically include:

  • Regular oral care with brushing and flossing
  • Avoiding excessive bite force
  • Taking care of treated teeth by avoiding chewing on hard objects and foods
  • Maintaining regular dental check-ups


By following the aftercare advice, you can ensure longevity and optimal performance from your veneers.

The Benefits of Dental Veneers

Deciding to go through the veneer process is a commitment that promises an array of benefits. For those contemplating this exquisite dental solution, here are five compelling reasons to enhance your smile with veneers:


  • Improved Aesthetics: Veneers can cure many aesthetic concerns, from discoloration to misalignment. They can help you achieve the symmetry and brilliance characteristic of the perfect smile.
  • Natural Look and Feel: With advancements in materials and techniques, modern veneers offer a remarkably natural look and feel. No one can tell the difference between your veneers and natural teeth.
  • Stain Resistance: Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to coffee, tea, or tobacco staining. This resilience in retaining their color can keep your smile bright for years.
  • Conservative Approach: Veneers are a conservative cosmetic dentistry technique, requiring less alteration of the natural teeth compared to procedures like crowns.
  • Boosted Confidence: Perhaps the most significant benefit is the confidence that comes with knowing your smile is radiant. A beautiful smile can dramatically improve your self-image and quality of life.
