Getting a porcelain veneer is usually a multi-step process, however, this is dependent on the type of veneer you choose to have fitted.
A composite bonding/ composite veneer procedure often only requires one appointment, where we bond filling material to your teeth.
However composite bonding/ composite veneers are not as long-lasting and likely will stain which a porcelain veneer won’t.
Generally, the porcelain veneer procedure follows four steps.
- Consultation with the practice you have chosen to have your treatment with. During your consultation, your dentist will listen to your complaints, concerns and goals in regards to your teeth and your desired new smile.
- Step two, we create a 3D model of your new smile. We will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth if we need more information on the health of your teeth.
- Step three involves preparing the tooth for the veneer, where we will remove a small amount of the tooth structure, create an impression, then fit you with a temporary veneer or veneers.
- During stage four, the temporaries are removed, and the final veneers are bonded to your tooth.
