Cover discolored, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth with natural-looking veneers from our skilled Greater Orlando, FL, cosmetic dentists. If you’re not familiar, porcelain veneers are very thin “shells” that are affixed to the front of teeth and are made to resist stains well into the future. A dramatic final look is possible with this form of elective treatment.

Veneers go on the front of teeth to correct tooth shape and hide chips, cracks, or stains.

Here’s what you need to know.

Getting Porcelain Veneers: What to Expect

If you’re considering veneers, it’s essential to understand the process so you know what to anticipate during each stage of treatment. Fortunately for you, our dentists have years of experience placing veneers so you can rest comfortably in the dental chair while we make your smile dreams come true.

Essentially, the entire veneers procedure will span across multiple appointments. Each phase can be broken down as follows:

1. Consultation & Planning

During this initial meeting, we’ll discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations. Our dentists will also examine your oral health and discuss whether porcelain veneers are the right choice for you. If they are, we’ll create a customized treatment plan that will include the number of veneers needed, the desired shade, and the overall design.

2. Tooth Prep & Temporary Veneers

Before the veneers are applied, a small amount of enamel must be removed from the front surface of the teeth receiving the veneers. This is typically a minimal and painless process. Our dentists will then take impressions of your prepared teeth to create custom veneers that fit perfectly.

While your permanent veneers are being crafted in a dental lab, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth to protect them and maintain aesthetics. These versions offer a preview of your new smile and allow you to get used to the feel of veneers.

3. Veneer Placement

Once your custom veneers are ready, you’ll return to our Ocoee, FL, dental office for their placement. The fit and color of the veneers will be examined before each tooth is cleaned, polished, and etched or roughened. The process of etching allows for a stronger bond in the end. We’ll then apply a special adhesive to permanently place the veneer and use a light to further establish the bond.
