If you’re considering porcelain veneers, you need to understand that they’re simple to place in your mouth and can last for a decade or more. In fact, it’s hard to think of any kind of cosmetic dental procedure that’s simpler than veneers expect perhaps teeth whitening.
Your porcelain veneer experience starts with a dental consultation. The dentist will help you decide if you’re a good candidate for these thin ceramic sheets that are applied on the front surfaces of visible teeth. The dentist will also show you digital images that help you understand how veneers will look on your teeth so you can decide exactly how you want them to look. There are choices in styling and coloration.
In all cases, you fully participate in the planning process.
The actual dental veneers process starts with a digital impression that is sent to the master crafter who makes the individual veneers especially for you. In many cases, your teeth will be prepared with etching to remove the front slick surface during this same initial visit. Temporary veneers are put in place to protect the etching and allow you to go on with normal life while you await custom veneers.
When the permanent pieces are ready for you, you simply return to the dentist for a second appointment. The permanent veneers are affixed quickly and painlessly, then you leave this appointment with finished porcelain veneers that will last for years when you take good care of them.
If the process of getting veneers sounds really simple and easy, that’s because it is. There’s no better way to quickly enhance your appearance if you’re a good candidate than to get practical, fast and beautiful veneers so you can have the smile you’ve always dreamed of. It’s an intelligent decision for which you’ll thank yourself again and again.
