The Process to Place Veneers

Getting veneers typically requires two appointments – one to prepare your teeth and another to deliver the porcelain veneer.

Veneers offer the following advantages:

  • They provide a natural tooth appearance
  • Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well
  • Porcelain veneers are stain resistant
  • The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected
  • Veneers generally don’t require extensive shaping
  • Veneers offer a stronger alternative to crowns
Diagnosis and treatment planning

Diagnosis and treatment planning

In the first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we are going to accomplish by placing the veneers. Once we have put a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth for the placement of the new veneers.

Impressions

Impressions

As we complete this piece of the process, the next step is to take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. This impression will be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. This process at the laboratory takes between 10-14 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear for this time.
