Quick Summary of The Procedure For Porcelain Veneers
Now that you have decided to get dental veneers, it's time I tell you what goes on during the procedure of getting porcelain veneers.
- Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic procedure that can give you a glowing and radiant smile. Although the process needs about a week to complete, the result is always worth it if you're committed.
- A good cosmetic dentist will ensure you the best treatment and make the procedure seamless and painless for you without compromising your comfort.
- Your tooth is thinly shaved to make room for the porcelain veneers to fit snugly, giving you the desired look.
- Then, your dentist takes a mold impression of your mouth to make the porcelain veneers. In the meantime, you will be given a temporary set of veneers until the permanent ones are ready. This usually takes a week to prepare.
- After a week, the dentist will call you to place and fit the porcelain veneers with a bonding cement on your teeth and clean them after making any adjustments.
- It usually requires three visits, one for consultation with the dentist on your desire to get porcelain veneers. The other two are for the procedure itself.
