Porcelain Veneers in Charleston, SC
Dr. Hudgens is an experienced cosmetic dentist in Charleston, SC. He has helped many patients within our local community achieve their dream smiles with porcelain veneers.
What To Expect: Porcelain Veneers
When you visit our office for a cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Hudgens will first thoroughly evaluate the current health of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. Any underlying concerns must be addressed first before a cosmetic dentistry solution can be offered. This prevents similar future concerns from occurring and impacting the longevity of your smile makeover results.
Porcelain veneers are an elective procedure, meaning patients should consider their dental health goals and budgetary preferences while discussing their treatment options with their doctor. Dr. Hudgens will make sure that you are fully aware of all of your options so that you can make an informed decision on bettering your dental health.
Once it is decided that you will get porcelain veneers, Dr. Hudgens will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create the custom veneers. Once the custom veneers are complete, Dr. Hudgens will call you in to place the veneers. Some enamel removal may be necessary to make space for the veneer.
The veneer is secured to the front-facing portion of your tooth using dental cement. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years and can be easily replaced as needed.
