The Porcelain Veneer Procedure
On the day of the procedure, Dr Kasen will anaesthetize you and prepare your teeth for veneers.
This is a very meticulous process to ensure the minimal amount of tooth is removed before placing the porcelain material and dental veneers.
Any fillings that are required are replaced at the same time.
Once the teeth are prepared, either a digital scan or physical impression mould are taken of your teeth and your veneers are made by a master ceramist to create your new smile.
Temp veneers are then placed on your teeth whilst the veneers are made by a master ceramist.
You should expect to wear your temporary veneers from 1 to 3 weeks.
While you are waiting for your final veneers, you will get to test out how your new veneer(s) will feel, and give you the opportunity to provide feedback (and validation purposes) to Dr Kasen on the look and feel of your temp veneer.
When your porcelain material veneers are ready from the master ceramists, you once again will be anaesthetized.
The veneers will be removed and the new ceramic ones bonded on to your teeth.
The veneer procedure can take 3 – 4 hours and performed under a local anesthetic or numbing agents.
Once bonded, your new porcelain veneers will look and feel great.
If you have a question about the veneers procedure, contact us.
After the Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Dr Kasen will want you to schedule a follow-up appointment within a few weeks to make sure your gums and bite are progressing nicely.
How long do veneers last?
After time, properly installed veneers last 10 years to 25 years, the porcelain veneers may need to be replaced.
Veneers are very resilient, and almost as strong and tough as your teeth.
Gum tissue also tolerates the veneers very well.
Routine professional dental cleanings, check ups, x rays, brushing and flossing will help to extend the length of your veneers.
If you crack your new veneers, it is important to see a dentist right away to assess the damage.
It is also important to note that like your regular teeth, veneers can stain – so it is always recommended to reduce the consumption of red wine, coffee, and other drinks that can cause staining.
If you play contact sports, you should also wear a mouth guard, and if you grind your teeth at night you should consider a retainer.
