If you think you might be a candidate for the veneers procedure, your first step is to request a consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists. During your consultation, we’ll be able to determine whether you’d benefit most from dental veneers or another cosmetic dental procedure.
We may recommend the veneers procedure if your teeth are healthy, but have minor imperfections. Veneers are often used to restore teeth that are stained, gapped, crooked, or chipped. To learn more, check out our blog post on the advantages of dental veneers.
Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells we’re able to bond to the fronts of your teeth. For this reason, we’ll need to remove a thin layer of enamel to make room. Once we do this, our dentists will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab where your veneers will be made. We’ll also place temporary covers over your teeth. When you return for your second appointment, we’ll be able to remove the temporary veneers and replace them with your permanent porcelain veneers.
How to Care for Veneers
Take care of your veneers like you do the rest of your smile. The American Dental Association recommends you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time. Our cosmetic dentists also recommend you floss once daily to remove plaque hiding in between teeth. Porcelain veneers can last years with proper care.
