Are You Beautifying Your Smile With a Dental Veneer? Here’s What to Expect

Posted .

Dental veneers are beneficial cosmetic treatments that can finally give you the smile you have always wanted. In fact, they can do so in an easy and simple manner. If you’re expecting to beautify your smile with a veneer, this is the treatment process you can look forward to:

Step No. 1: Diagnosis and treatment planning
When you first come into our office, tell our team about the smile goals you would like to achieve. This will give us an idea of what you’re looking for in a cosmetic dental product. If dental veneers are the right option for you, your dentist will explain the treatment process and will take X-rays of your smile.

Step No. 2: Tooth preparation
Your dentist will prepare the tooth that is receiving the veneer by trimming the enamel to make room for the product. Generally, only about ½ millimeter will need to be removed. Then, he will make impressions of your tooth and will send those impressions to a dental lab where your veneer will be created.

Step No. 3: Veneer bonding
Once your veneer is ready, your dentist will check the size, fit, and color of the product to make sure it provides perfect results. Then, he will clean your tooth and will roughen its surface. This will make the veneer stay in place. When you’re ready, your dentist will apply cement to the veneer and will place it over your tooth. For the best results possible, he will use a special light to harden the cement.
