Porcelain Veneer Procedures

Young woman with beautiful smileMost patients complete their porcelain veneer placement in just two treatment visits. During the first appointment, we need to prepare teeth by removing a small amount of surface tooth enamel. This allows your veneer to fit into your existing smile line without sticking out. Once teeth are prepared, we capture impressions that will be used by our lab to craft custom veneers. Then, we place a temporary porcelain veneer to protect your teeth until the custom restorations are completed. When we receive the final restoration from our lab, you’ll return for your second appointment. We will remove your temporary and place the flawless, custom porcelain veneer.

Caring for Your Veneers

Afterwards, you'll just need to clean and floss your new smile daily, visit us regularly for professional care and maintenance, and consider wearing a night-guard to prevent any accidental gritting or grinding pressure while you sleep. We may also recommend making some changes to your oral hygiene products. For instance, you may need to use a softer toothbrush, less abrasive toothpaste, and waxed floss to avoid excessive wear or tugging around the edges of your veneers.
