Placing your Porcelain Veneer
Placing your porcelain veneers generally take two office visits. At your first appointment, we will first discuss with you what it is that you are seeking. Together, you will decide on what end result you are seeking. He will then proceed to prepare your tooth, or multiple teeth, that will have the veneer placed. He will begin with a light buffing and then surface shaping. This is to allow the space for your veneer to adhere to. The alterations we make to your teeth will permanently alter them but is necessary so the veneer can fit around the tooth. With your tooth, or teeth, prepared, we will take impressions using a mold of your teeth. This impression will be sent to a dental lab for the creation of your tooth veneers. We'll place a temporary restoration on your prepared tooth until your next appointment.
Once we have received your customized veneers, generally about two weeks, we will schedule a second appointment with you. At this second visit, we will clean your teeth using a specialized solution that will help the veneers bond to the surface of your teeth. He will then place a bonding cement between the veneer and the natural tooth. This bond will be set and hardened using a curing light.
Following the placement of your new dental veneers, you should continue to see Tyson Smiles regularly to check up on the health and appearance of your smile. With proper dental hygiene routine and visiting us regularly, you'll extend the life of your beautiful new porcelain veneers.
