Looking for ways to impress your girlfriend for National Girlfriend Day on August 1st? There’s no better way to get her attention than by improving your smile. Porcelain veneers offer a quick and convenient solution for a variety of cosmetic dental issues, including crooked teeth, tooth gaps and stains. Here’s what you should know about the procedure. 

Porcelain Veneer Placement

Unlike some cosmetic dentistry procedures that can take months or even years to complete, veneers can be placed in minimal time. Here’s a general overview of the steps involved in the treatment process:

1.Your doctor trims enamel from the sides and front of the teeth that will receive veneers. The idea is to trim just enough off the surface so the veneers won’t appear unnaturally large when applied to the teeth.

2.Your veneers will be carefully color matched to the adjacent teeth for the most seamless appearance.

3.Your doctor will take an impression of your teeth and the surrounding tissues, then make a veneer that will fit snugly and comfortably over the teeth.

4.If your veneers are not being fabricated on-site, you’ll likely be fitted with temporary veneers until your permanent veneers are ready.

5.Once your veneers are ready and your doctor carefully checks to make sure they fit perfectly, they are bonded in place with dental cement to the surface of the teeth. Any remaining cement will be cleaned up to ensure that the veneers are perfectly smooth. 

Porcelain veneers are a good option for a number of aesthetic teeth issues. The placement process typically takes only two appointments and delivers instantly noticeable results.
