Our Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Your first appointment is a consultation. We’ll discuss how you’d like your smile to look, take photographs of your face and smile in our portrait studio, and take impressions. Our laboratory can then create a “wax up” rendering of what your smile will look like once the procedure is complete. Then we’ll make the temporary veneers for the next visit.
During your next appointment, we’ll conservatively shape your teeth and take a mold of them so that the laboratory can fabricate your permanent veneers. Only 0.5 – 0.8 mm of tooth reduction is needed for a porcelain veneer. Then, we place beautiful temporary veneers that you will have for two weeks. This is important as the temporary veneers serve to guide our dental lab in the creation of your permanent veneers. We apply a lot of attention to the temporary veneers to ensure the final result is what you want, and so you can smile and eat confidently while the lab is creating the permanents.
On your third visit, we’ll finalize the color and securely bond the permanent porcelain veneers to your teeth. The veneers will blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth to create a natural, attractive result. And, because the veneers are resistant to staining from coffee, tea, and smoking, your new smile will continue to look beautiful for years to come.
