Dental veneers in San Antonio, Texas, are successful cosmetic dental products that can quickly give you the smile you have always wanted. If you’re interested in knowing the treatment process involved in dental veneers, our Culebra North Dental Care team is more than happy to help you! When correcting your smile with a veneer, you can expect the following steps:
Step No. 1: Diagnosis and treatment planning
Explain the results you are trying to achieve to our team. That way, your dentist will know exactly what type of veneer you will need. Then, they will examine your smile and will make sure dental veneers are the perfect cosmetic product for you. If they are, they will take dental X-rays to check and see if everything is in great condition.
Step No. 2: Tooth preparation
The tooth that is receiving the veneer will then be prepared. Your dentist will prepare the tooth by trimming its front surface, which will make room for the veneer. When your tooth is the right size and shape, your dentist will make impressions of that tooth and will send those impressions to a dental lab to be created. You may be given a temporary veneer while you wait for your custom veneer.
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, they will deeply clean the tooth and roughen the surface. Next, they 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.
