Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
The porcelain veneers process will require several visits with us to plan, design and place your custom dental restorations. Dr. Hughes will meet with you to discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals and to evaluate your overall dental health to be sure dental veneers are right for you.
The first step is to prepare the teeth to be treated by removing a minimal amount of tooth structure in order for the veneers to fit snugly and comfortably. Dental impressions will then be taken for use in creating your custom veneers, which will be color matched to your natural appearance and existing teeth.
Once ready, your new porcelain veneers will be permanently secured to your teeth and then polished and adjusted for a natural looking and feeling result.
“What will my temporaries look like?”
What will my temporaries look like when I get veneers? is a question we get from many of our guests considering cosmetic dentistry. A well trained cosmetic dentist will have the skills to create provisional (temporary) restorations that mimic the final porcelain veneer goals… shape, length, width, shade, lightness, etc. Here are 3 cases completed by Dr. Hughes in 3 phases… before, provisional phase and final porcelain. The provisional stage is a great way to “try on” your smile before the final porcelain veneers are completed. It’s in the provisional phase that we can communicate changes to the lab technician that may be desired. When these important steps are taken, you are never left wondering… what will my smile be when I’m finished? Want more information about designing a beautiful new smile for yourself?
