Porcelain veneers are trouble-free, strong, long-lasting, and aesthetic restorations. It is a very conservative treatment, but does necessitate the removal of a minimal amount of tooth enamel, which is why it is considered irreversible. During your consultation, a doctor at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry will discuss this with you, and may suggest possible alternatives to reach your goals. Dental veneers in Redlands usually require two appointments, two weeks apart.
During the first appointment, your teeth will be cleaned to remove surface stains, then you and the doctor will choose the shade for the veneers. If the color recommended seems a little too light, don’t be concerned, they can be darkened during bonding. Then the teeth will be prepared by removing approximately 0.5 mm of enamel. If there are misalignment issues, the doctor may recontour them slightly to bring them into better alignment. Additional misalignment may be corrected during the bonding process by building up the veneers.
Impressions will be taken to send to the laboratory that is creating your veneers. The doctor will place temporary composite veneers if necessary or if you desire. Your teeth may be slightly sensitive due to the tooth preparation, but this can be relieved with over the counter pain medication. You will receive instructions on how to care for your teeth until the bonding appointment.
During the second appointment, the temporary veneers are removed, and the doctor checks the fit and aesthetics of the new ones.Both your teeth and the veneers are thoroughly cleaned to ensure tight bonding. The bonding agent is applied and the veneers are placed, usually two at a time. When they are in their correct positions, the bonding is hardened with a special light. The veneers are cleaned of any excess bonding material and polished to a dazzling new smile.
