The Process

The first step to this procedure is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. Once your dentist has determined that you are a candidate for porcelain veneers, a customized treatment plan will be created. You will discuss your smile goals and concerns during this time with your dentist.

To start the procedure, your dentist will lightly remove some of the enamel on your teeth so that the veneers have a surface to bond to. This step is usually done without an anesthetic; however, if you need one, talk to your dentist about the different anesthetic options. Next, your dentist will take some impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to a laboratory and used to fabricate your veneers. The fabrication process can take about one or two weeks.

Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our dental clinic for a second appointment. Your dentist will adhere each veneer to your teeth and then buff and polish your veneers to ensure a natural look.
