What does porcelain veneers entail?
Having veneers procedure typically requires two visits to complete the process.
The first visit
The process requires little or no anesthesia. The teeth are made by shaping and lightly polishing the surface to allow the thickness of the veneer. An impression (mold) of your teeth is then taken, so you and the dentist choose the shade or color that best suits you.
The second visit
Visiting the dentist the second time, you will have your teeth cleansed with special liquids to ensure durable bond formation. Bonding cement is then added between the veneer and the tooth, after which a special beam of light is used set and harden the bond. That’s all you need to wear a shiny and beautiful smile.
