About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can restore a beautiful smile by covering certain concerns, such as cracks, stains, chips, small gaps, and other issues. Thin, customized covers that fit over the front surface of the patient’s teeth, dental veneers create a natural, good-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are sturdy, but still thin enough to be translucent, which helps the porcelain veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting dental veneers created by our dentists at DentalWorks - Durham in Durham, NC is a efficient, easy way to cover several physical flaws and make a restored, radiant smile.

What to Expect
To begin the process of crafting the personalized dental veneers our dentists must make room for the dental veneer by removing a thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be covered to the dental veneer. Once the teeth have been prepared, our dentists will make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to make the custom dental veneers in a dental laboratory. A temporary veneer can be used to protect the teeth until the final dental veneers are returned to DentalWorks - Durham in Durham, NC. The custom dental veneers will be secured to the front surface of the teeth with a dental bonding agent. Our dentists will fine-tune the dental veneers as needed to provide the patient a comfortable fit.
A follow-up appointment is usually booked for about 5 - 7 days after the dental veneers are placed to ensure the attachment is secure and the fit is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to keep the dental veneers in their pristine condition, our dentists advise avoiding staining foods and drinks, like coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Patients should start or continue to follow a good home oral care routine, including daily tooth brushing with a non-abrasive toothpaste, regular flossing, and visiting our dentists for dental cleanings and oral exams at DentalWorks - Durham. With good care, dental veneers can last up to 20 years.
Porcelain veneers are categorized a cosmetic service, so it is usually not covered by dental insurance. However, DentalWorks - Durham in Durham, NC accepts many payment options, not to mention our dentists and the staff at DentalWorks - Durham can help patients with financing plans to make dental veneers more affordable.
