Applying Porcelain Veneers
The process for dental veneers is simple and pain-free and requires three visits—one for a consultation, another to make a model of your tooth, and the last to apply the new veneer. For the consultation, our dentist wants to know what you are looking for in a smile makeover and can show you how veneers look on a model of your teeth. The most commonly used material is porcelain because it looks the most natural.
During the second visit, we prepare your teeth for the veneer by removing just a tiny bit of enamel. This makes room for the veneer so one tooth is not thicker than the other. Then, we make a model of your tooth so our dental lab can craft your new veneer.
At your third visit, our dentist places the veneer. Before we make it permanent, we check the fit and color and make any necessary adjustments. Our dentist applies the veneer to a tooth that is cleaned and polished and cements it down. A light is used to harden the cement, making the veneer permanent. Porcelain veneers are strong in structure, natural in appearance, and resistant to stains. Having a veneer cover up a flaw in a tooth will give you many reasons to smile.
