Restorative dentistry encompasses many different procedures, and the team of Cary, NC and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers understands how to help patients choose the most appropriate treatments for their specific needs. Dr. Carl McMillan works closely with patients to help them in choosing the restorative treatments best for them. Porcelain veneers is a solution that may be suggested in many different cases.
Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are restorations fabricated from thin shells of ceramic. They are fabricated using impressions done after preparation of the natural tooth enamel. These restorations are bonded over the front of teeth to disguise imperfections in the smile, and can provide a fast and affordable solution to many problems. Porcelain veneers can be used to cover:
Dr. Carl McMillan finds that many patients are appropriate candidates for porcelain veneers. These restorations can last many years when men and women take good care of their smiles with brushing and flossing after every meal. When done correctly by an experienced cosmetic dentist, porcelain veneers are difficult to distinguish from the natural teeth, making them a beautiful solution to many dental concerns.
The process for porcelain veneers is rather simple. Patients start with a consultation appointment and examination to find out if veneers are right for them. Then, the teeth are prepared with removal of a very thin amount of enamel from the front portion of the natural tooth. Impressions are made by the dentist and then used to fabricate the veneers through a quality ceramist. Within a week or two, the veneers are sent to the dental practice for final bonding.
