How Does It Work?

Step 1:  Preview

Trial veneers can be formed and place in position

Allows the customer to have a preview on how the work will look like

 

Step 2: Teeth preparation

Eliminate tooth structure via polishing the teeth

A dental drill is used to perform the elimination

The goal is to eliminate as little as possible

 

Step 3: Creating the Veneers

Create a mold of your teeth and send to the laboratory

The laboratory will create the veneers

Usually takes up to five to seven business days to create the veneer

Patients wear temporary veneers while waiting for the final ones

 

Step 4: Bonding the veneer

After you and the dentist determine that the shape and color of the final veneer are right, your veneer can be bonded into place

The dentist will wash off and polish the surface of your tooth, to make sure it is ready

The surface of the tooth is etched

The etching gel is washed off and cement is applied on the tooth and inside the veneer

The veneer is put into the right place and the dentist will activate the bonding agent and cement by shining a light directly in the area

 

Step 5: Final step

If there is any excess cement the dentist will scrape it and floss it away

The bite will be evaluated to ensure that the placement of the veneer has not modified it
