Porcelain Veneers Treatment in Charlotte, NC
Before treatment planning, cosmetic dentists Dr. Randall Stewart or Dr. Melissa Stewart will examine your smile and learn more about your dental goals, budget, and oral health needs. If there are any dental issues that need to be addressed prior to treatment, they can treat them before applying your porcelain veneers. For example, if your teeth are discolored and you are also interested in teeth whitening, we will need to first provide whitening treatments before placing your veneer. This will ensure that the veneer does not stick out.
Porcelain veneers require a small amount of tooth enamel to be removed from the affected tooth. This is done in order to create a proper bonding surface for the veneer. Dental impressions of your teeth will then be taken to determine the best veneer placement, and so that the veneers fit onto your teeth properly. The final veneer specifications like size, shape, and color, will be sent to a dental lab for fabrication.
When the dental veneers are complete, the surface of your teeth will be cleaned and polished and the veneers will be carefully bonded to teeth. Any final adjustments will be made to ensure that the veneers fit comfortably.
There are multiple benefits that this treatment can provide to patients. For example, porcelain veneers can:
- Provide durability
- Require no special maintenance
- Are stain-resistant
- Look and feel natural
Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct:
- Gaps in teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
If you have any of these problems, call the Stewart Dental Group at 704-376-2404 for treatment with porcelain veneers. Our team will help you obtain brighter, more balanced, and beautiful smiles.
Porcelain Veneers FAQs
Will getting porcelain veneers ruin my teeth?
No, though this seems to be a popular rumor. There’s no drilling or damage to your natural tooth when placing veneers. There’s only slight removal of some of your tooth enamel, but it won’t ruin your tooth.
Is getting porcelain veneers a painful process?
No, the process should not be painful. A local anesthetic is used as a precaution, so the area should be numb during treatment. After treatment, you will not be in pain, but should brush and floss gently around the veneer until you are fully used to it.
Are there downsides to getting porcelain veneers?
It’s important to know going into veneers that they are considered a permanent restoration and cannot be easily removed. While porcelain veneers are resistant to staining, they can still chip, crack, and sustain damage like your natural tooth. Lastly, because tooth structure is removed to place the veneers, you may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold foods or beverages.
