Porcelain veneers can offer an effective solution to individuals seeking to improve their dental aesthetics.

What Porcelain Veneers Could Fix

Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile. They can be used for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. Patients could find veneers help with a range of dental concerns, such as:

  • Discoloration
  • Staining
  • Chips and fractures
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Short teeth

The process for getting veneers can take a few weeks to complete.

Initial Consultation

The journey to achieving a beautiful smile begins with an initial consultation at Chapel Hill Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. During this visit, Dr. Furgurson, with a focus on personalized care, assesses the patient’s dental needs and discusses their cosmetic goals. He explains the veneer process in detail and answers any questions. This consultation allows for a comprehensive evaluation and paves the way for a personalized treatment plan.  

Preparation of Teeth

Once the treatment plan is established, the teeth undergo preparation. Dr. Furgurson, known for his commitment to patient comfort, removes a small amount of enamel from the tooth surface. Depending on your specific case, a local anesthetic may be applied to help reduce pain or discomfort. However, many patients don’t need anesthesia for veneers. This step helps ensure that the veneers will fit properly and look natural. Precision in this stage is crucial, as it influences the final appearance and comfort of the veneers.

Impressions and Temporaries

After preparing the teeth, Dr. Furgurson makes impressions of them. These impressions guide the creation of custom veneers that fit comfortably in your bite. It can take a few weeks to fabricate porcelain veneers. In the meantime, your dentist will likely provide you with a set of temporary veneers to help protect your teeth while you wait.

Placement of Veneers

Once the veneers are ready, the patient returns for the placement process. Dr. Furgurson carefully bonds each veneer to the tooth, ensuring a secure and lasting attachment. He then makes any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal alignment and appearance.
