What are veneers? They’re an excellent way to redesign and reshape your smile. Veneers are a very thin ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth structure. In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you’re able to fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, chipped teeth and many other dental worries.
How long does the process take? Placing veneers is a process that takes approximately two to three visits. In the first visit, we’ll 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 your teeth for the placement of the new veneers.
As we complete this part 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. We only utilize the highest standard lab for fabrication of all of our work. This process at the laboratory takes between 10-14 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated, don’t worry—we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear in the meantime.
As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that they feel just like your natural teeth. This includes bonding them into place, ensuring that you can enjoy your new smile for a very long time.
