Veneers are one of the most popular and effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. They’re essentially thin porcelain shells that Dr. G fits over the front surfaces of the teeth that are the most prominent in your smile. Because they cover the entire visible section of the teeth, all of its aesthetic imperfections – including chips, cracks, discoloration, and even minor misalignment – instantly disappear. Even better, each veneer is 100% customized to suit your unique needs, so you won’t have to worry about your results looking unnatural.
After your consultation, during which Dr. G discusses the specific improvements you’d like to make to your smile, the veneers process usually takes only two appointments. First, we “prep” your teeth for veneers by shaving off an extremely thin layer of enamel (about as thick as a contact lens). Without this step, your veneers would look and feel bulky compared to your other teeth. Next, we take impressions of your teeth, which the dental lab technicians will use to craft your veneers to perfection.
While they’re busy creating your veneers, we can place a set of temporary veneers to let you take your new grin for a test run. A few weeks later, you’ll return for your second appointment, where we’ll swap your temporaries for your final veneers. Once we make any last-minute adjustments and you’re satisfied with the results, we bond your veneers to your teeth.
