The first step when considering dental veneers is making an initial consultation appointment at The Good Dentist. Your dentist will discuss your options and the best course of action moving forward. X-rays will often be taken to assess the health of the teeth and jaw. We will assess the health of the mouth’s gum tissue and your overall dental health. It is important to have a healthy foundation to work with before fitting veneers.
The next step, during the follow up appointment typically involves shaving down some of the enamel of the teeth that will be fitted with veneers. This ensures correct sizing and is important in getting the right fit. A mould will be taken of the teeth and then sent to a lab to help with the creation of the veneers.
The following appointment will be scheduled when your veneers have been crafted and ready to be placed. We’ll evaluate the fit, colour, shape and overall feel. This is followed by a thorough clean of your teeth to ensure no bacteria is trapped under the veneer and leads to nasty decay.
Once the teeth are clean and the surface of the tooth has been prepared, we use a binding material to cement the veneer to the tooth. The entire fitting procedure lasts approximately 2 hours.
After the new veneers have been fitted and you are feeling comfortable, you are then ready to head home with a brand-new smile.
