Sometimes, our patients can find themselves facing smiles with several cosmetic flaws at once. Thankfully, instead of having to undergo multiple procedures, veneers can give your appearance the comprehensive transformation it deserves. A porcelain veneer is a high-quality, custom-made restoration that is designed to be extremely thin in nature. This allows it to fit over just the visible surfaces of certain teeth, hiding years of stains, chips, gaps, and other imperfections from view behind a new, flaw-free appearance. We look forward to helping you improve your self-confidence here at Franklin Dental Center!
The creation of a new veneer typically requires two to three visits to our dental practice. During your first appointment, Dr. Franklin-Pitts will discuss with you the personal goals and desires you have in mind for your new-and-improved smile. Once we have a solid plan in mind, it’ll be time to precisely remove a small amount of natural structure from the affected teeth so that they will be able to accommodate the new veneer’s placement. Finally, impressions are taken and sent to a trusted dental laboratory for creation. In the meantime, we will provide you with a temporary veneer so that you don’t experience any disruption in your day-to-day life.
Patients can expect their new, permanent veneer to arrive at the practice within 10-14 days. After we’ve ensured that the finished product is correct and suited to your smile, we will cement it in place. Once everything is said and done, your veneer should feel, look, and function just like natural teeth!
