The Veneers Process

Porcelain veneers are sheaths of durable, tooth-colored material placed over the front facing surfaces of teeth. We can use veneers to reshape teeth, close gaps between teeth, or conceal cosmetic flaws. The top, bottom, or both rows of teeth visible within the smile line can be included in a porcelain veneers treatment plan.

The process is completed over the course of two appointments. During the initial office visit, we need to remove a small amount of tooth structure from the surface of teeth. This allows the veneer to lay flat and doesn’t change the natural shape of the smile line. Next, bite impressions are captured. These impressions will be used to design and craft your custom cosmetic restoration. Finally, we place temporary veneers. This allows you to adjust to the look and feel of your transformed smile and protects the prepared teeth.

When we receive your custom veneers from our dental lab, you’ll return to the office for your second appointment. The dentist removes your temporary and exchanges it for a flawless, high quality porcelain veneers. If you’re happy with the results, your treatment is complete. If not, let the dentist know right away. We can make adjustments and help you achieve the desired result. Once in place, your custom veneer will last for years with proper care. Great news for those patients who enjoy wine, coffee, berries, and other staining foods and drinks, porcelain veneers may be ideal since they are stain resistant!

The Purpose of Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are an extremely versatile cosmetic dentistry service. We can use them to correct or conceal numerous smile irregularities and create a flawless, natural appearance. Some of the reasons patients seek porcelain veneer treatments include:

  • Numerous chips, stains, or gaps
  • Unevenly spaced or slightly crooked and overlapping teeth
  • Deep set stains that do not respond to teeth whitening
  • An uneven smile line (teeth that are differing lengths)

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

There are so many factors that can contribute to the cost of your veneers, such as where in your mouth they’re being placed and the number of veneers you receive. With that said, you truly get what you pay for when it comes to veneers (like most things in life). While they can be a great investment when you want a Hollywood smile, you should make sure they are the right cosmetic treatment for you ahead of time!
