Porcelain Veneers: What to Expect

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are bonded to the front of natural teeth improving their appearance. These versatile shells can be used to alter the color, shape and size of your teeth. This form of cosmetic dentistry is used to fix teeth that are stained, discolored, uneven, misshapen, gapped, chipped or broken.

What to Expect

The process starts by coming in for a scheduled consultation. Once you decide to proceed, we begin by taking photos and impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be sent to a lab to create your personalized veneers. After a couple weeks your customized veneers will arrive ready to be bonded to your teeth. Your teeth will be etched prior to application of the veneers. This allows the veneers to bond to your teeth better, as well as feel more natural in your mouth.

Once your natural teeth have been cleaned and etched, the veneers are ready to be permanently cemented on. The final step is making any necessary adjustments and scheduling a follow up appointment to make sure everything is as it should be. The whole procedure is completely pain-free, is usually takes about an hour, but they will last you decades (or even longer)!
