Whether your teeth are chipped, discolored or slightly gapped, quality veneers from Quincy dentist Alaa AlWazzan, DMD, PC are a great way to fix that. Here’s your step-by-step guide to the process of getting veneers.
First you’ll visit the dentist for a consultation. Your dentist will take x-rays of your teeth, examine your mouth for general good Dental Veneershealth, and ask you what you hope to accomplish by getting veneers – whether that is improving your teeth’s color, shape, size or something else.
If your dentist determines you are a good candidate for veneers, they will begin the process by shaving your teeth down slightly – usually between .5 and 1.5 millimeters, depending on the condition of your teeth and the problem you are trying to address.
Next, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth. This can be done two ways: with impression putty or with an optical camera. Talk to your Quincy dentist to discuss which option is better for you.
Once your new veneer is ready, your dentist will hold it up to your teeth to check the color, fit, and shape, and to make adjustments as needed. Your dentist will experiment with different trial pastes to see which color will give the best results.
Once the veneer is ready to be attached, your dentist will etch your tooth slightly for a better hold, and then they will attach the new veneer with cement. The dentist will then use a special light to harden the cement, and your new veneer will be attached and ready to go!
While the process of getting veneers is not especially complicated, it does require special skill to achieve veneers that look and feel completely natural.
