Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can correct many dental issues at one time. Just a few examples are, if you have chipped, misaligned, or stained teeth you can have those issues resolved in just two visits.
What to except with veneers when you decide to get that smile you always wanted from Philadelphia Dentistry. On your first visit the dentist will begin by making impressions of your teeth. After that, they will then create a mold of how your teeth will look once your veneers are placed. The molds of your teeth are then sent over to our trusted lab so they can customize the veneers specifically for your smile. This process takes around 2-3 weeks to get your custom veneers back from the lab.
Once your veneers are personalized to the right size, shape, color, ect. it’s time to start your smile makeover. Your teeth will need to be prepped before applying the veneers. The preparation will include a cleaning and some light sanding to insure the best results. The dentist will then use a cement that is the same color of your teeth to bond your veneers to the front surface of each tooth. Once everything is placed the dentist will make sure the veneers are shaped and adjusted perfectly to the shape of your mouth and face. If you are 100% satisfied with your veneers the dentist will then place a special light to permanently bond the veneers to your teeth. Finally, the dentist will then check everything to make sure you’re comfortable and the veneers fit perfectly with your new smile.
