Dr. Carl McMillan works with men and women who come into the practice to find out if porcelain veneers are right for them. Patients must be considered appropriate candidates for this restorative solution. Many are and can continue the process, which requires the removal of a thin portion of tooth enamel. By taking off a thin layer of enamel, the porcelain veneer can be bonded to the front of the tooth without adding unnatural bulk to the smile. This ensures a natural look once placed.
Porcelain veneers begin with impressions that are taken after the tooth has been prepared. These impressions are used to fabricate the facings at a ceramic laboratory. The molds are used to make the tooth restoration and then it is sent to the dental office for placement. Patients can expect porcelain veneers to take two to three visits to complete. Once veneers are bonded to the natural tooth, they can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
Porcelain dental veneers are incredibly popular because they are affordable, beautiful, fast, and effective at handling imperfections of the smile.
