How complicated is it to get porcelain veneers?
Considering the remarkable difference that veneers can make to the appearance of your smile, having them placed is not complicated at all.
We start the process by taking time to talk to you about your concerns and all the possible solutions, including porcelain veneers. We can often use more than one type of treatment to address your needs, so it’s important to explore all your options.
If we find that porcelain veneers are the way to go, we work with you to select a shade that looks natural and blends perfectly with surrounding teeth. Then we prepare your teeth by removing a very thin layer of your natural dental enamel. This serves two purposes: it provides enough space for the veneer to fit naturally and also roughens the surface enamel to ensure a secure bond.
Next, we take impressions that will be used to custom-create your new veneers. These will be sent to our dental lab, where highly skilled technicians will fabricate your veneers to our exact specifications.
When the veneers are finished, we will have you return to our office to have them placed. Dr. Leung will check them for fit, make any adjustments necessary, and bond them to your teeth using special dental cement. The final step is shaping and polishing of the veneer so it looks completely natural.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile cosmetic dental treatment that will transform your smile in just a few easy visits. Please contact us to arrange a complimentary consultation so we can tell you more about veneers.
