Frequently Asked Questions
It takes two or more appointments to restore teeth with veneers. During the first appointment, we shape and roughen the teeth. We then take impressions of your teeth, which we use to make precise working models of your mouth. It's on these models that we artistically craft veneers to fit the prepared teeth.
During the second appointment we clean and polish the prepared teeth. Then we use an adhesive to bond the veneers to the teeth. A harmless, high-intensity light hardens the adhesive. Once in place, veneers virtually become part of the teeth. You can use them like you would your own teeth. The bond is extremely strong. The final result is beautiful and natural looking teeth.
There are three steps to this procedure:
- An impression is taken to make an exact reproduction of your mouth and teeth so that the veneers can be custom made by the laboratory. Minor tooth preparations may be required to create room for the veneer.
- To help adhere the veneer to the tooth surface, the tooth is etched with a mild acid solution to slightly roughen the surface.
- Veneers are applied individually and permanently bonded to the tooth surface after you have approved shape and color.
Veneers generally last between 5 and 10 years. After this time, the veneers would need to be replaced.
