About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can bring back a beautiful smile by correcting certain cosmetic flaws, such as stains, chips, cracks, tiny gaps, and other issues. Slender, customized covers that fit over the exterior surface of the patient’s teeth, porcelain veneers produce an effortless, dazzling smile. Porcelain veneers are sturdy, but still slender enough to be translucent, which helps the dental veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting porcelain veneers crafted by our dentists at DentalWorks - Hickory in Hickory, NC is a fast, straightforward procedure to cover several cosmetic imperfections and design a renovated, radiant smile.

"My first time there. Everyone was so nice and cared about your comfort. I was there longer than I expected but it was because they had a hard time getting me numbed to pull a bad tooth. It was being stubborn. But they were concerned about my comfort and not being in pain. I was very pleased and satisfied with my visit. Thank you for caring."- C.V. / Google / Aug 21, 2017

What to Expect
To begin the process of crafting the custom-fit porcelain veneers our dentists must find room for the porcelain veneer by taking away a paper-thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be covered to the porcelain veneer. When the teeth have been made ready, our dentists need to make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to make 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 - Hickory in Hickory, NC. The custom-fit porcelain veneers will be secured to the front surface of the teeth with a special resin bonding agent. Our dentists may fine-tune the porcelain veneers as needed to provide the patient a comfortable fit.
An additional appointment is usually booked for approximately one week after the porcelain veneers are attached to make certain the bond is tight and the finish is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to preserve the porcelain veneers in their best condition, our dentists suggest staying away from staining food and beverages, such as coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Patients are advised to start or continue to keep a good home oral care routine, including daily tooth brushing with a non-abrasive toothpaste, daily flossing, and making appointments with our dentists for professional cleanings and dental exams at DentalWorks - Hickory. With appropriate care, porcelain veneers can stay on for up to two decades.
Porcelain veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure, and it is typically not covered under dental insurance. Though, DentalWorks - Hickory in Hickory, NC accepts numerous payment methods, along with our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Hickory can aid patients with financing arrangements to make porcelain veneers within each patient's means.
