If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, dental veneers are the best way to enhance your smile and give you a boost in confidence.
The process of getting dental veneers takes several visits. You typically start with a consultation to ensure you’re a good candidate for veneers. Your first official appointment involves prepping your teeth.
During this phase, your dentist gently removes a minuscule amount of tooth enamel from the outer surfaces of each tooth that’s getting a veneer. Not only does this ensure the veneer has an even surface to which to adhere, but it helps the veneers set flush with your surrounding teeth and gums. This way, they look and feel entirely natural.
After gathering molds of your teeth and taking any essential X-ray imaging, your information gets sent to the lab where your custom veneers are made. Once your veneers are ready, the team at Smile Center Silicon Valley schedules you for veneer bonding.
Bonding your veneers involves using a specialized dental adhesive and light to help the veneers stick to your teeth. Your dentist applies each veneer one at a time. Once they’re all in place, they can make any essential adjustments if it feels like any of your veneers are sticking out or rubbing.
In some cases, your dentist wants you to come back for one additional follow-up appointment, just to see how you’re adjusting to your new veneers and make any essential adjustments.
Though dental veneers are long-lasting, they aren’t permanent. With routine cleanings and daily brushing and flossing, your veneers can last up to 10 years or more.
During that time frame, some of your veneers may start to become stained or even fall off. Your dedicated cosmetic specialist at Smile Center Silicon Valley can replace or rebond veneers as needed at any time.
