About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can restore a gorgeous smile by covering certain cosmetic flaws, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and other issues. Thin, specially made covers that are bonded over the front surface of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are substantial, but still thin enough to be inconspicuous, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - Burlington in Burlington, NC is a efficient, easy way to cover up different physical flaws and make a restored, dazzling smile.
What to Expect
To start out the process of manufacturing the personalized dental veneers our dentists will need to make room for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be masked to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to manufacture the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Burlington in Burlington, NC. The custom dental veneers will be affixed to the front surface of the teeth with a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will modify the dental veneers as needed to provide the patient a secure and comfortable fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually planned for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like tea, soda, coffee, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home oral care routine, including brushing the teeth daily with a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - Burlington. With good care, dental veneers can last up to 20 years.
Porcelain veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - Burlington in Burlington, NC accepts many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Burlington can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
