The most frequently asked questions about veneers
What are veneers?
Is a thin covering that is placed in the front surface of your tooth to cover stains or cracks. Also, to change tooth length, size or shape and to close gaps.
What is the process to get porcelain veneers?
The first step is having a consultation with the best cosmetic dentists.
First, during consultation we’ll take all the necessary x-rays: set of individual x-rays, panoramic and a CT scan. In addition, the dental assistant will also take some studio photos. After the dentist asks you the main goal of getting veneers, they will evaluate your teeth.
Using the high dental tech, then the cosmetic dentist will take a digital scan of your teeth to work on a wax try in. Wax try in is a mockup of how your teeth will look with veneers.
Second appointment is to start preparation, you will leave with temporaries.
To finish, a third appointment is to have the permanent veneers cemented.
How much teeth will it me shave for my veneers?
On average the dentist will shave 0.3mm of your enamel to properly fit the veneer. If no shaving is involved, you probably will end up with thick teeth.
Can I avoid the teeth shaving and still get veneers?
You can get composite veneers without trim down the enamel of your teeth.
Is important to understand that veneers can’t work for everyone. If you have extreme broken or crooked teeth, your dentist will first recommend other procedures to fix alignment before getting veneers.
