Porcelain Veneers Treatment in Charlotte, NC
Prior to treatment, Dr. Reece will assess your teeth and gums. He will discuss your budget, goals, and oral health with you to ensure that porcelain veneers are the right option for you. After a dental exam, he will create a treatment plan to address all of your oral health issues.
After you have accepted the treatment plan, Dr. Reece will begin the treatment. He will first prepare your tooth enamel by removing some of the tooth structure from the front and sides of your teeth. He will then take an impression or mold of the teeth. While your custom-made porcelain veneers are being crafted in a lab, Dr. Reece will provide you with temporary porcelain veneers.
Once completed in a dental lab, the custom porcelain veneers are bonded to teeth with porcelain ceramic material. Dr. Reece may make some adjustments to make sure the porcelain veneers are the right size and shape.
Porcelain veneers are also resistant to staining and can last for years with proper dental care. You can still get cavities under your veneers, so it is important to keep on brushing and flossing twice a day.
Avoid chewing on hard objects or nail-biting as the veneers may chip or break. If you notice that your bite doesn’t feel right or you feel any discomfort, call our office and we will fix it as soon as possible. Your comfort is our priority.
Porcelain Veneer FAQs
What happens to teeth underneath veneers?
When a tooth or remnants of a tooth are left underneath of veneers plaque may migrate beneath the veneers. It is easy for plaque to sneak in and attack what is leftover of the tooth. This can create cavities beneath your veneers which may cause tooth decay.
Do Veneers stay the same color forever?
Veneers are mostly stain resistant. Your teeth may stain but once color matched your veneers should stay the same color the entire time you have them. They can remain the same color for years after being put in.
Do veneers normally smell bad?
Veneers may start to smell, or give patients bad breath. This is because they are made to fit directly against your natural teeth. In some cases there are gaps and space that may trap plaque and bacteria. The trapping of bacteria in ones mouth can cause veneers to smell.
