Placement Process for Porcelain Veneers
Traditional porcelain veneers usually require only two office visits in order to achieve the remarkable and stunning smile that you have always wanted. The first visit begins with a one on one consultation with a cosmetic dentist during which your teeth and mouth will be examined to ensure that veneers are appropriate for you. You will also discuss what you would like to achieve in your smile with your porcelain veneers dentist and they will explain what the procedure will involve. Next, your dentist will administer a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure. During this first visit the dentist will gently remove a small portion of the natural tooth structure to accommodate the porcelain veneers. Then, a custom mold is made of your teeth and mouth and is sent to a dental laboratory. At the lab, specially trained technicians use your molds to custom fabricate the porcelain veneers to complement the unique physical characteristics of your mouth. In the last step of the first visit the dentist will bond attractive temporary veneers to the teeth which will be worn until about one week later when the permanent porcelain veneers are ready from the lab. At the second visit, the dentist begins with gently removing the temporary veneers and bonding the permanent veneers to the teeth. The dentist will ensure a perfect fit with the patient’s surrounding teeth and a comfortable bite. Once placed, the porcelain veneers will be polished and buffed to an immaculate lustrous shine. Patients are able to leave our office with a completely transformed smile and a renewed self confidence. In addition to traditional porcelain veneers, Dr. Eugene Stanislaus also provides LUMINEERS® veneers, which are minimal preparation veneers that do not require any reduction of the patient’s natural tooth structure.
