During the first appointment, we shape and roughen the teeth. We then take impressions of your teeth, which we use to make precise working models of your mouth. It’s on these models that we artistically craft veneers to fit the prepared teeth.
During the second appointment, we clean and polish the prepared teeth. Then we use an adhesive to bond the Porcelain Veneers to the teeth. A harmless, high-intensity light hardens the adhesive. Once in place, Porcelain Veneers virtually become part of your teeth! You can use them like you would your own teeth because the bond is extremely strong. The final result is beautiful and natural-looking teeth.
It can take time for you to get used to the appearance and feel of your new teeth. You won’t have to change the way you floss or brush, however. But you should not:
- Bite your nails
- Chew on pens, ice or other hard objects
- Put extreme pressure on your teeth
Doing any of these things can cause the veneers to come off, break or chip. Your dentist will ask you to come back in a few weeks and they will check the veneers for any problems.
