Do you want to change your smile? It’s not unusual to feel self-conscious about your teeth. At Absolute Smile, we want you to feel comfortable in your smile. Porcelain veneers offer Philadelphia patients and new lease on their smile. Let’s look at what you need to know with our step-by-step guide.
Before we begin with any treatment, you’ll need a consultation visit. This allows us to determine if veneers are the right option or if you need another treatment, such as dental implants. We’ll review your overall oral and physical health and look at what your goals are for treatment.
The next step involves preparing for your veneers. We’ll capture scans and images of your teeth and mouth to help us design and shape your veneers. If necessary, we will also remove a little tooth enamel to make room for the veneers (this isn’t always necessary for every patient or every tooth).
Designing and Creating the Veneers
Once we have images and prepared your teeth, we design the veneers. Because porcelain veneers are meant to look like natural teeth, we want them to look like teeth that belong in your mouth. During this process, you usually receive temporary veneers to help protect your teeth until the permanent veneers are ready.
Placing Your Veneers
Once your custom porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to the office for placement. We use a local anesthetic to numb the area to ensure your comfort before placing the veneer. Dental cement holds them in place, and we make minor adjustments to the veneers to ensure a perfect fit and smile.
