The Treatment Process Involved in Placing a Dental Veneer

Posted .

If you’re interested in beautifying your smile with a dental veneer but you’re a little nervous about the placement process, our Groover Family Dentistry team is happy to ease your fears! The process of placing a dental veneer in Savannah, GA, is easy and simple. It involves the following steps:

Step No. 1: Diagnosis and treatment planning
When you first come into our office, tell your dentist about the goals you would like to achieve. If your dentist knows what you’re looking for in a cosmetic treatment, he will be able to give you the results you desire. Then, if dental veneers are the right treatment for you, he will explain the treatment process and will take X-rays of your smile.

Step No. 2: Tooth preparation
Next, your dentist will prepare the tooth that is receiving the dental veneer. The preparation will involve your dentist trimming the front surface of your tooth to make room for the veneer. Once the tooth is the right size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of the tooth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. The lab technicians will use the impressions to create the veneer that will fit perfectly in your smile.

Step No. 3: Veneer bonding
Once your veneer is ready, your dentist will check the size, fit, and color of the veneer and will make any necessary adjustments. Then, he will deeply clean the tooth and roughen the surface. Next, he will apply dental cement to the veneer and will place the veneer over your tooth. For successful results, your dentist will use a special light and will harden the cement.
