Do you wish you could improve the look of your smile but are hesitant about spending time in the dental chair? If so, we are delighted to provide more information about your treatment experience to help you feel more comfortable during the appointment. For example, dental veneers are beautiful cosmetic shells that can improve your appearance rapidly. Below, we have provided a review of the treatment process of placing a dental veneer in just a few steps:

Step 1: First, we need to determine that dental veneers are the most ideal treatment for your smile by examining your teeth, gums, and underlying jawbones with a series of dental X-rays. If dental veneers are ideal for you, we will form a customized treatment plan to work toward your smile goals.

Step 2: Next, we prepare the tooth to receive a dental veneer, such as using a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding tissues and trimming your outer tooth layer to accommodate the dental veneer. Then, we submit an impression of the tooth to the dental lab so that your veneer can be custom made.

Step 3: Once the veneer is ready, you will return to our office to ensure it’s the right shape, size, and color, and then we can cement it into place.
