The process of obtaining veneers from your dentist in or around LOWELL, DRACUT, METHUEN, TYNGSBOROUGH, PELHAM, LAWRENCE, BOSTON, MATTAPAN, HYDE PARK, ROSLINDALE, MILTON, NEW BEDFORD, FAIRHAVEN, MATTAPOISETT, ACUSHNET, ROCHESTER, MARION begins with a consultation to identify your concerns and whether they can be resolved with veneers. Once it is determined that you will proceed with the veneer treatment, a preparation visit is scheduled. This appointment is generally 1-2 hours. Your teeth are buffed lightly to prepare for the added thickness of the veneers. During the buffing, approximately ½ millimeters of the tooth is removed. A local anesthetic is utilized to ensure you are comfortable during this procedure. Next, a mold of your teeth is created, which is then sent to a quality dental laboratory to custom manufacture the veneers to match your teeth perfectly.
A second appointment with your dentist at Smiley Dental is then necessary to bond the veneers to your teeth. This appointment will also last approximately 1-2 hours, and begins with the new veneers being placed on the teeth to check the fit and color for accuracy. Once the color and fit are verified, the teeth are thoroughly cleansed. A cement is applied, the veneers are placed on the teeth, and the cement is then hardened with a light beam or laser.
Following your bonding appointment, you will return after 1-2 weeks for a follow-up appointment to ensure the veneers are stable and functioning well.
