Dr. Carl McMillan and the team at Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers understand that many patients want to achieve a more attractive smile. Using porcelain veneers, men and women are able to hide imperfections including misalignment, gaps, staining, and chipping.
Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for many patients because of their advantages.
- Porcelain veneers are made quickly and placed over the front of teeth within a period of approximately two weeks.
- Porcelain veneers are matched with the existing teeth, ensuring they look completely natural within the smile.
- Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, meaning that patients will not have to worry about discoloration due to food and beverages.
- Porcelain veneers can last a long time, with some patients enjoying their restorations for over a decade.
- Porcelain veneers are an affordable way to address many imperfections, making them a more desirable option for both men and women.
Dr. Carl McMillan follows a close process when he consults with patients about porcelain veneers. He first decides if patients are appropriate candidates. This includes an evaluation and even x-rays to check the overall health of the smile. He discusses with patients alternative options they may want to consider for their issues, which may include teeth whitening, orthodontics, or composite resin dental bonding. When patients have chosen porcelain veneers, he then prepares the tooth by filing down the front enamel. Impressions are made and these molds are mailed off to a dental laboratory with specific instructions regarding the final veneers. Within a week or two, the veneers arrive back at the dental office and patients will come in for the final bonding.
