The Three-Step Process of Placing a Dental Veneer

Posted .

Are you considering enhancing your smile with a dental veneer? Dental veneers are amazing cosmetic products that cover the face of your teeth and disguise the unwanted imperfections in your smile. If you’re interested in learning more about dental veneers, our team can provide you with an in-depth look at the three-step process of placing a dental veneer.

Step 1. We diagnose your dental needs and plan the treatment. Providing our team with a thorough explanation of the results you want helps our dentist to know which type of veneer is right for your smile. We will analyze your smile to ensure dental veneers are the right choice, as well as take dental X-rays to gauge the condition of your teeth.

Step 2. Our dentist prepares the tooth. About half a millimeter of the enamel will need to be trimmed away to accommodate the veneer. Then, we will create impressions of your tooth and send them to a dental lab to have your dental veneer custom created.

Step 3. We bond the veneer in place. Our dentist will evaluate the color, fit, and size of the veneer to ensure it meets your desired results, he cleans the tooth and roughens the surface of the tooth enamel so that he can apply a dental-grade cement to the veneer and bond it to the tooth. The cement is quickly hardened with a special light.
