Veneers are a versatile cosmetic solution. Some patients receive just a couple veneers to disguise particularly unattractive teeth. Others opt for an entire set of four to eight veneers to achieve a total smile transformation.
Porcelain veneers offer a number of outstanding advantages:
Before you can receive veneers, you’ll need to visit us for a cosmetic consultation. Dr. Osseiran or Dr. Mazhari will make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough to support veneers. Your dentist will also discuss your smile goals with you and answer all of your questions about any cosmetic treatment you’re considering.
If you decide to receive porcelain veneers, it’s wise to get your teeth whitened first. Porcelain your veneers will be shade-matched to the surrounding teeth. Because porcelain doesn’t respond to whitening treatments, before your veneers are installed is the best time to brighten your smile.
After any preliminary work is finished, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing just a sliver of enamel for them; this step is to make sure your veneers work well with your natural smile line. Then, our team will take some images and impressions of your teeth, which will serve as the basis for designing your custom veneers.
You’ll wear temporary veneers until your permanent ones are ready. Then, you’ll return to our office so your dentist can verify that they are a perfect fit for you before they’re permanently attached to your teeth.
