About Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic enhancement with porcelain veneers can bring back a stunning smile by correcting certain visible flaws, such as stains, chips, cracks, tiny gaps, and more concerns. Slender, made-to-order shells that are fixed over the exterior enamel of the patient’s teeth, porcelain veneers produce an effortless, dazzling smile. Porcelain veneers are durable, however still slender enough to be not obvious, which helps the dental veneers to blend in with the natural teeth. Having porcelain veneers crafted by our dentists at DentalWorks - Wilmington in Wilmington, NC is a fast, straightforward procedure to hide assorted cosmetic imperfections and design a renovated, luminous smile.

"New to the area and I couldn't recommend giving this dentistry a try! Was a pleasure to deal with all of the staff from the front desk to the office mgr, to the hygienist, to the Dentist herself. They listened to me and understood how sensitive (teeth/etc) I was and filled with anxiety and they took SO much better care of me than my previous office (different state) had for the past 10 years. I'm actually looking forward to my next appt in 6 months which has never happened before."- J.L. / Google / Aug 03, 2018

What to Expect
To start off the procedure of constructing the custom-fit porcelain veneers our dentists has to find space for the porcelain veneer by taking away a paper-thin layer of enamel from every tooth that is going to be hidden to the porcelain veneer. When the teeth have been made ready, our dentists need to take a digital image of the teeth, which will be used to construct the custom-fit porcelain veneers in a dental laboratory. An interim veneer will be used to cover the teeth until the permanent porcelain veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Wilmington in Wilmington, NC. The custom-fit porcelain veneers will be fixed to the front of the teeth using a special resin bonding agent. Our dentists may adjust the porcelain veneers if needed to give the patient a snug and comfortable fit.
An additional appointment is usually arranged for approximately one week after the porcelain veneers are attached to make certain the bond is tight and the finish is still comfortable. Dental veneers are more resistant to staining than the natural teeth, but to preserve the porcelain veneers in their best condition, our dentists suggest staying away from staining food and beverages, such as soda, coffee, tea, and red wine. Patients are advised to start or continue to keep a good home dental care routine, including brushing the teeth each day using a non-abrasive toothpaste, daily flossing, and making appointments with our dentists for professional cleanings and dental exams at DentalWorks - Wilmington. With appropriate care, porcelain veneers may stay on for up to two decades.
Dental veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, and it is typically not covered under dental insurance. Though, DentalWorks - Wilmington in Wilmington, NC takes numerous payment methods, along with our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Wilmington can aid patients with financing arrangements to make porcelain veneers within each patient's means.
