Benefits of porcelain veneers:
So what are Veneers?
What is the procedure?
Stage 1 - Consultation
The first step in the porcelain veneer process is for you to come in for a consultation and discuss your options. This is your chance to interview us, and for us to show you what’s possible! We’ll take digital images of your teeth and smile, and we’ll talk about your objectives, whether it’s closing spaces, straightening, whitening, etc.
It is during this appointment that we will listen intently to your concerns and then spend time with you looking at your photographs and listening to what you have to say about your smile. This is where artistry comes into play.
We’ll show you pictures of amazing smiles to see what appeals to you and we’ll offer guidance for which smile might best match the shape and contours of your face. Our entire team is dedicated to understanding what you are looking for.
We offer custom treatment plans for treatment of all scope, whether it’s only two porcelain veneers, or a full-mouth restoration of 28 teeth. You’ll receive a personalized treatment plan for best achieving your goals and we’ll walk you through the details. By the time this appointment is finished our doctors will have created the formula that will give you EXACTLY the smile you want, and more than you might have thought possible!
Stage 2 - Your Blueprint
Once we’ve established the cosmetic plan for your smile, we will take impressions of your mouth and teeth. These are sent with detailed instructions to a Master Ceramist. We communicate with them every step of the way to give you the results you want.
The ceramist will mount your models on a chewing simulator machine and place wax on the teeth to mimic what your veneers will look like. This “wax-up” blueprint ensures the restorations will function properly in your mouth.
We are concerned not only about your smile looking fabulous, but we also want the results to be functionally long-lasting!
The wax-up serves two purposes:
1) It allows you and the doctor to preview the result BEFORE we ever start working in your mouth, and
2) provides a template from which we will design your temporary veneers. The wax-up gives us a great starting point for forming your temporaries in the most conservative way possible. Your temporaries will look beautiful, and they allow you to test drive your new smile.
Stage 3 - Shaping your Teeth for Veneers
Now, we are ready for the actual dental procedure! We will do any necessary shaping of the tooth, trying to be as conservative as possible. We’ll numb you and prepare your teeth to make models on which we make your veneers.
After we have contoured your teeth, we will fit you with the dental temporaries that have been created from your wax-up. The wax-up is your road map, and the temporaries are your test drive. You’re almost at the finish line!
This test drive gives us the opportunity to make modifications, whether functional or cosmetic. We can adjust them if they’re too long, too short, too round, etc. You’ll get to identify those changes as we move towards fabricating your permanent veneers with our master ceramist. You’ll wear the temporaries for about three weeks, giving you plenty of time for alterations.
Stage 4 - Bonding on the Veneers
The final step is the bonding and placement of your beautiful porcelain veneers. Congratulations, this is the big day! You will have been wearing your temporaries for a few weeks, test driving everything about them. At this appointment, we remove the temporaries, try in the finished porcelain to make sure it is perfect and to make sure you LOVE the results.
We then permanently bond in the porcelain restorations. We’ll equilibrate your bite, meaning we align all the forces so that YOU have perfectly natural movement. We will then take a new set of impressions to make a protective night guard to protect your new smile! The process is now complete, and you can go out into the world and shine!
