The Veneers Placement Process in Dallas
Step One: Preparing Your Teeth
After you’re approved for veneers, you’ll come into ConfiDent Smile Studio for a consultation with Dr. Ken or Dr. Powell. He will clean and numb your mouth, and then gently remove a thin layer of enamel from each tooth that’s receiving a veneer. Then, he will take scans and impressions of your smile.
Step Two: Crafting Your Veneers
Next, we will attach a set of temporary veneers to your teeth and send you home. Then, he will send your scans and impressions to our dental lab. This is where your set of permanent porcelain veneers will be made. It will usually take 2-3 weeks to complete your veneers and have them sent back to ConfiDent Smile Studio.
Step Three: Final Veneer Placement
Once your final veneers arrive at our office, you’ll come in for your final appointment at ConfiDent Smile Studio. Dr. Ken or Dr. Powell will remove your temporary veneers, and then clean and prepare your teeth for your new veneers. He will check the fit of your veneers and bond each one to your tooth using powerful dental cement. Finally, we will polish your teeth one last time and send you home to enjoy your new smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Veneers?
If you have a healthy mouth but you have cosmetic problems that are making you feel self-conscious about your teeth, dental veneers may be right for you. Veneers are appropriate for treating a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues. However, it’s important to note that veneers are not meant to be a restorative treatment. They can only be applied to healthy teeth. If you have tooth decay or damaged teeth, you may not qualify for treatment with veneers until you get appropriate treatment from Dr. Ken and the team at ConfiDent Smile Studio.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
With proper care, veneers typically last somewhere between 10-20 years before they require replacement. As your veneers wear out, you will need to have them replaced by Dr. Ken. This is because the veneer treatment process involves removing a thin layer of enamel from your teeth, and this process is not reversible.
What Are Veneers Made Of?
Veneers are made of a durable, tooth-like porcelain material. This ceramic material has the same shine and hardness as natural enamel, and can be matched to your existing teeth perfectly, which ensures that you will get an even smile. And unlike your natural enamel, the porcelain used for veneers is nonporous, which means that it cannot become stained. Your new smile will look bright and brilliant for the years and decades to come.
