Treatment with Porcelain Veneers

To begin treatment, we will prepare the natural tooth enamel. We prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of tooth enamel. Etching into the enamel ensures that the veneers properly conform to the teeth. Then, we will scan the teeth. Our office CEREC technology, which allows us to digitally scan the teeth and mill ceramic restorations in-office. The tooth scans create three-dimensional images that we use as a template to fabricate the veneers.

Once the veneers are complete, we clean the teeth and apply bonding material to the tooth’s surface. Then, we make sure that the veneers are in the right shape, size, and shade. We bond the veneers to the tooth enamel. Finally, we polish and shine the completed veneers.
