- Easy Maintenance: Dental veneers are low-maintenance restorations you can care for similarly to your natural teeth.
The Porcelain Veneer Process
You’ll first attend a consultation with Dr. Howard, where he’ll evaluate your oral health to determine if porcelain veneers are best suited for your smile goals and needs. If approved for dental veneers, we’ll schedule your first appointment.
To begin, Dr. Howard will administer local anesthesia to ensure a painless visit. He’ll then continue by gently removing a small portion of the enamel from your teeth’s surface to make room for your veneers. After, he’ll take an impression of your smile to send to our dental lab, where they’ll be used to create your personalized cosmetic restoration.
Once we receive your dental veneers from the lab, which takes about three weeks, you’ll return to our office for your final fitting appointment. Dr. Howard will place and adjust your porcelain veneers before cementing them with a dental-grade bonding material. When you’re satisfied with the look and feel of your restoration, you’ll then be ready to showcase your stunning new smile!
