Glendale Cosmetic Dentist Explains The Process Of Getting Dental Veneers

Written by Dr. McKay on Oct 12, 2021

If you have considered using dental veneers to improve the appearance of your smile, then this short article may be useful for you. Today our Glendale dentists are going to walk you through the process of dental veneer’s treatment. Let’s get started!

The first thing that our dental team will do is assess your smile. We will first make sure that porcelain veneers are the right treatment option to provide you with the aesthetic results that you want. At this time, we’ll also determine whether your smile is currently healthy enough to undergo aesthetic treatment. If you are dealing with existing oral health issues, we may need to address these before we pursue cosmetic treatment.

Once we’ve determined that veneer treatment is the right choice for you, we’ll finalize what kind of aesthetic objectives you want to achieve with porcelain veneers. For example, you can use veneers to lighten your smile, straighten the appearance of your smile, and even close gaps between your teeth.

We will next need to prep your teeth for dental veneer application—it is often necessary to shave away some dental enamel so that the veneer, once applied, does not look bulky or fake. Once your teeth are prepped, we will take molds of the teeth on which you will use veneers. These molds allow our dental team to ensure that your porcelain restorations will fit perfectly once they are complete.

Every veneer is crafted to suit the individual’s unique aesthetic and functional needs. This means that the size, shape, and color of each veneer will be tailored to work with your smile.

Once the porcelain restorations are complete, we’ll check them on your smile to make sure that they fit perfectly. Finally, we’ll attach the veneers to your teeth using a specially formulated dental adhesive. Once your veneers are attached they will stay in place permanently, and look exceptionally natural.
