Getting veneers usually requires at least two visits to our office. In most cases, little-or-no local anesthesia is required during the initial procedure. Your teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the enamel to allow for the optimal fit for your veneer. An impression or mold of the teeth is made, and a color shade is chosen based on your desired results. All of this information will be sent to a laboratory where your veneers will be created.
On the next visit, the teeth will be cleansed, and a special etching liquid is applied to achieve a strong bond. Using dental bonding cement, the veneer is fixed onto the tooth, and a special light is used to harden the bond. We will give you care instructions for your veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular in-office visits will help prolong the life of your new veneers.
