The Process for Receiving Veneers
Our dentists’ solid training and experience give them the big picture view that they need to make your smile attractive and healthy at the same time. They take a conservative approach when it comes to your smile with a focus on the preservation of your natural teeth, which is especially important when working with veneers.
Planning Your Treatment
To help you better understand your treatment options, our dentist will make a dental diagnostic wax-up simulating the outcome of the procedure or procedures that he recommends. This way, you’ll get a very good idea of what your new smile will look like before any work is even done.
Crafting Your Veneers
Our dentists will make an impression of your tooth that we will send to a high-tech local lab that uses very precise, computerized technology in the milling of the porcelain. After your veneer is made, it will be bonded to your tooth and you will see the stunning results.
Our dentists use top-grade e.max® and IPS Empress® porcelain for their veneers because of their superior strength and durability. They will occasionally use, on a case-by-case basis, a natural color “composite” material instead of porcelain to create a veneer.
