What is the difference between porcelain veneers and dental crowns?
While a dental crown covers the entire tooth like a cap, a porcelain veneer covers only the front and sides of the tooth. Both types of treatment are used in cosmetic dentistry as well as restorative dentistry.
Dr. Hendricks will help you choose which type of restoration is right for you.
Process For Porcelain Veneers
The first step in the porcelain veneers procedure is a comprehensive consultation and evaluation with South Carolina dentist Dr. Hendricks. He will determine if dental veneers are right for you and create a customized treatment plan.
Once a treatment plan is in place, we will schedule the first appointment. At this visit, Dr. Hendricka will prepare the teeth receiving porcelain veneers by removing a small amount of tooth structure. Dental impressions will then be taken for the custom design and fabrication of your new veneers. Temporary veneers will likely be placed until your custom restorations are complete.
At the final appointment, your new porcelain veneers are permanently secured to your teeth. We will make any necessary adjustments for a good fit and comfortable bite before polishing the new surfaces for a natural luster.
