Lincoln Park Cosmetic Dentist Describes The Veneers Treatment Process

Written by Dr. Szurgot on Aug 22, 2017

Patients who are interested in improving their smiles with efficient and effective treatment, may be interested in porcelain veneers. Veneers deliver full results in just a few appointments, and they are completely customizable.

Today our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists are giving you some more information about how dental veneers are crafted and placed. We hope that this information helps you assess whether dental veneers may be right for you.

When you first meet with our dental team we will assess your smile. At this point we’re trying to identify any existing oral health issues that may need to be corrected before we apply veneers. We’ll also talk to you about your dental goals; once we get a feel for what you’re dream smile looks like, we can help you determine whether veneers can help you meet your goals.

If dental veneers are right for you, we’ll next prep your teeth so that we can apply dental veneers to them. We will shape your natural dental structure so that once the veneers are in place, they will not look bulky or fake. Finally, we’ll take impressions of your prepped teeth; these impressions are used to craft your final veneers.

Once your customized veneers are completed, you’ll come in for another appointment with our team. We’ll dry-fit the veneer to make sure everything looks perfect. Once we’ve confirmed the fit of your restoration, we will bond your veneers to the appropriate teeth. At the end of this appointment, you’ll be able to jump back into your regular routine with an improved smile!

As you can see, the process for dental veneer placement is straightforward and patient-friendly. If you want to learn more about how veneers work, or if you want to get a better idea of whether veneers can help you, please give our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists a call. We are here to help you!
