Porcelain Veneers

Dr. Matthew K. Chow provides porcelain veneers at his Clinton, MS, office for patients who want to conceal cosmetic dental issues such as chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers are a popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry because they can address multiple aesthetic issues in a single treatment. Dr. Chow couples advanced materials to create lifelike, durable porcelain veneers that can elevate your confidence in your personal and professional life.  

What Are Porcelain Veneers? 

porcelain veneersPorcelain veneers are porcelain shells that are custom-made to enhance the look of your smile. Porcelain veneers can quickly conceal a variety of cosmetic issues in a single, comprehensive treatment, and may be a good option if you have: 

  • Misshapen teeth 
  • Chipped or cracked teeth 
  • Irregularly shaped teeth 
  • Small teeth 
  • Gaps 
  • Minor misalignment 
  • Discoloration 

If your teeth are severely compromised, you will probably require a restorative procedure such as dental crowns. During a consultation, Dr. Chow will carefully assess the state of your smile to determine which treatments are the best fit for your needs.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Chow, you will explain your cosmetic goals and work together to decide whether porcelain veneers are the optimal treatment to help you achieve your desired outcomes. We will provide mockups that preview what your new smile will look like following treatment. This will allow you to make any suggestions before we create your veneers.

Once you are satisfied with your preview, Dr. Chow will remove a thin layer of tooth enamel to create room for your veneers. He will then create impressions of the prepared teeth. These impressions are sent to our lab, where advanced technology is used to closely match the veneers to surrounding teeth for a natural appearance. 

Once your porcelain veneers are ready for placement, we will try them in, and can make adjustments as necessary. Dr. Chow will then apply a bonding agent to carefully attach the porcelain veneers to the front of your teeth. Some patients experience minor sensitivity following the removal of enamel, but most are able to return to their daily routine immediately following the procedure. The benefits of porcelain veneers are instantly apparent after placement.

Porcelain veneers can beautifully conceal a variety of cosmetic issues with durable, lifelike results.

Long-Lasting Results 

The porcelain used to create veneers is highly durable and stain resistant. With proper care and maintenance, veneers can maintain their brilliance for years to come. Patients who practice good oral hygiene and regular dental examinations can expect their porcelain veneers to last for about 10 years.
