What Happens During The Porcelain Veneer Process?
Having new veneers designed and crafted will typically require two appointments. During your first visit here in Edmond, our team will carefully alter the affected teeth to make way for the new veneer before capturing detailed impressions for the dental laboratory. Dr. John will also place a temporary veneer to protect your smile in the interim.
Once we’ve received your permanent veneer, you’ll be invited back, so we can make last-minute adjustments and bond it securely in place. With proper personal hygiene and professional maintenance, veneers can be expected to last for 10 years or longer. They high-quality porcelain structure is also very resistant against gradual discoloration, even more so than natural enamel, which means your improvements will keep shining throughout the veneer’s lifetime.
