Little River Veneers
If you have chipped, cracked, worn-down, or badly stained teeth, Dr. Emily Hortman may recommend dental veneers in Little River, SC and North Myrtle Beach. Each veneer is a custom-made porcelain shell designed to fit over your most visible teeth, concealing cosmetic flaws and providing a flattering smile aesthetic. The shade of the veneer, along with its shape and size will be made to match your surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly. We encourage you to contact our experienced Little River porcelain veneer dentist today to learn more and to schedule a consultation.

What Is A Porcelain Veneer Procedure Like for Patients in Little River?
When patients visit Palmetto Dental Associates, we will take an impression of their teeth to create the veneers in a lab. The veneers will match the size, shape, and color of your teeth, taking a week or more to create.
In order to place dental veneers, we will first prepare your tooth by removing a portion of the enamel. This helps the veneer lay flat and in line with your gum tissue. After preparing the tooth, we will secure a temporary veneer using removable glue. While wearing a temporary veneer, it is important to brush your teeth gently and avoid eating any foods that may push it out of place. Since it is secured by removable glue, it can be moved fairly easily.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you will come back into our Little River dental office so that we can remove the temporary and ensure that the new veneer is a perfect fit. It is typically attached using a water based solution to see how it looks. If any adjustments need to be made, it will be done at this time. Otherwise, the tooth will be cleaned, and the dental veneer will be bonded to the tooth. Patients will enjoy how the results look. They are instant, and you can start flashing your smile right away.
