PORCELAIN VENEERS: ABOUT THE PROCESS

The process for placing one or more porcelain veneers will start with a consultation to create a treatment plan that will meet your overall needs and goals. Dr. Bottoms will perform a dental exam to ensure other treatments are needed for a successful result.

Porcelain veneers are made in a dental lab to your exact specifications and color-matching needs. They are created from thin shells of high-quality ceramic that are made to cover only the front of your teeth. The quality of the ceramic material enables your new veneers to reflect light like a natural tooth and blend seamlessly into your smile.

The first visit in the process will include preparing the teeth to receive veneers by removing a small amount of surface tooth structure. This allows the veneer to be adhered to the tooth and remain securely attached. After preparing the tooth or teeth, Dr. Bottoms will take dental impressions, which will be used to design your new veneers. Sent to a dental lab, these impressions will be used to create custom porcelain veneers for your smile. Temporary veneers are typically placed to protect the teeth.

The second visit will be scheduled when your final veneers are complete and ready for placement. Dr. Bottoms will attach each veneer using a special adhesive and check the bite. If tiny adjustments are needed for fit, comfort, and aesthetics, they will be completed after placement. The veneers are then polished so that your new smile looks natural.

We recommend regular dental care visits to maintain the integrity of your results. Routine dental care enables our team to monitor your new veneers over time and address any signs of damage. Porcelain veneers are highly durable, but good oral hygiene and routine care is important to protect your investment.
