What Is the Process of Obtaining Porcelain Veneers?
For porcelain veneers, there are several steps that need to occur to complete your new smile:
- Phase 1 – Smile examination and treatment conference – Dr. Sharon Schindler will perform a comprehensive smile evaluation, take comprehensive color photos of your teeth, and discuss your smile goals. A treatment plan is devised to your smile needs and outlined in detail. Once approved, impressions of your teeth & X-rays are obtained. A smile wax up is done from your impression models for smile design preview and approval. The wax up is also obtained to be utilized for the temporary veneers.
- Phase 2 – Temporary Smile & Restorative appointment – Dr. Schindler will conservatively and gently prepare your teeth for the veneers. A final impression is obtained and the temporary veneers are placed. Multiple color photos are obtained to ensure the artistry of the final veneers.
- Phase 3 – Final Smile appointment – Dr. Schindler will permanently bond your porcelain veneers on your teeth. Dr. Schindler only uses the most aesthetic porcelain materials and the veneers are hand-crafted by an elite master ceramist. Once your dental veneers are completed, Dr. Schindler will carefully fit them and then bond them into place using a strong adhesive cement. Dr. Schindler’s technique is very meticulous and gentle to the teeth during the cementation process, ensuring optimal aesthetics and no sensitivities afterwards.
- Phase 4 – Post evaluation visit – A follow up evaluation appointment is scheduled to double check your smile and bite and to further review how to care for your new veneers.
What Can I Expect After the Placement of Veneers?
You can expect a stunning new smile! Porcelain veneers can transform your teeth into perfectly shaped and aligned white, natural-looking teeth. With proper maintenance and home care, porcelain veneers typically last 15-20 years or longer.
