Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that bond to your teeth, giving the appearance of a normal healthy tooth. This makes veneers a tool to enhance and correct any aesthetic flaws, such as unwanted gaps, chipped, discolored, or misshapen teeth.
How the Veneers Process Works
The process always begins with a consultation appointment. This will allow us to perform a complete exam to see if veneers are a good option for you. Sometimes we may recommend aligning your teeth before doing veneers, to achieve the most optimal results.
If you decide to proceed, we will then take impressions to create a diagnostic mock-up of your mouth. This mock-up will give you an idea of your future smile so that you can make any modifications before we make the veneers. This way you get to fully customize your smile.
First, we locally anesthetize the area to be worked on and then prepare your teeth by removing a small layer of enamel. We will then take a final impression and provide you with temporary veneers. Once the lab sends us your customized veneers, you will return for your second appointment where we will permanently cement your veneers. Then, you can say hello to your brand new smile!
