The process of receiving veneers depends on the type of veneer that’s right for your smile. Here is what you can expect:
Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers require 2-3 appointments over several weeks to place. Due to the thickness of the porcelain, our dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth to ensure the best possible fit and a natural appearance. Impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent off to a dental lab, where a technician will design the veneers specifically for your teeth. Then they will be bonded to the front surface of your teeth and adjusted as necessary.
Composite Veneers: Composite veneers are a type of no-prep veneer that does not need tooth reparation to place. This means you can typically receive your veneers in just one appointment.
Lumineers: Although they require little to no tooth preparation, Lumineers typically require two appointments to place. They will be designed in a dental laboratory based on impressions on your tooth and can be bonded to the surface of your teeth without trimming or reshaping the enamel. This means that Lumineers can be removed without causing any damage to your teeth should you change your mind in the future.
