How are Porcelain Veneers Applied?

Porcelain veneers, a relatively new procedure in cosmetic dentistry, are thin, porcelain shells that can be affixed to the front of your existing teeth to correct minor cosmetic and functional issues. Teeth that are chipped, broken, oddly spaced, unevenly sized, or stained underneath the enamel can all have porcelain veneers affixed to them to improve the quality and beauty of your smile.

Smile Makeover

During your initial consultation, Dr. Anderson will discuss with you all of your treatment options. If you determine that porcelain veneers are best suited to your needs, an individually designed smile makeover will be created for you. After you approve of the proposed changes, you will be ready to start the process for the placement of your porcelain veneers.

Process for Application of Porcelain Veneers

The quick, noninvasive process for the placement of porcelain veneers takes places over two office visits. On your first office visit, an impression will be taken of your teeth. This impression will be used to make your new veneers, allowing the experienced professionals at the laboratory to match the size and shape of your existing teeth to ensure an even, natural looking smile.

The process for making your new veneers takes about two weeks, during which your new porcelain veneers will be molded and perfected, making sure they are a natural fit for your mouth. During your second office visit, the porcelain veneers will be affixed to your teeth. Minor adjustments will be made to ensure a proper, natural fit, and you’ll walk out with a smile that has been dramatically improved.

If you live in San Ramon, Danville, or Livermore, California, and are looking for an easy, noninvasive, painless way to improve your smile, please contact experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Sean Anderson for a free consultation.
