Placement of Porcelain Veneers

We understand getting any dental treatment can be nerve-wracking, but we will support you every step of the way so that you always know what to expect. While every patient is different, the porcelain veneer placement process generally involves the following steps:

  • Evaluation: Before preparing your teeth for veneers, we examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are eligible for the treatment.
  • Preparation: If you qualify for veneers, we prepare the teeth by removing small amounts of enamel to roughen the surface and help the veneers stay in place.
  • Impressions: Once enough enamel has been removed, we take impressions of your teeth to make the custom veneers.
  • Placement: When the veneers are ready, we assess the shape, color, and fit. Then, we bond them to your teeth with dental cement. After placement, we can check your bite and make any necessary adjustments.

When the anesthesia wears off after veneer placement, most patients can resume their usual activities right away, including eating and drinking. Our knowledgeable team can help you understand how to take care of your porcelain veneers, which involves brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings to prevent staining and cracking.

6 Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

If you are insecure about the shape, size, or color of your teeth, porcelain veneers may be a great option. With their rising popularity, this cosmetic dental option offers patients the following benefits:

  • It’s a long-lasting solution
  • They add strength to your natural teeth
  • Veneers blend in with the rest of your teeth for a natural look
  • Applying them is a relatively simple and non-invasive procedure
  • Veneers are stain and decay-resistant
  • Veneers are easy to maintain

Because veneers are made of non-porous, high-quality materials, they resist staining and decay better than natural teeth. This makes them an effective and long-lasting teeth-whitening solution. Our skilled and seasoned team can help determine if porcelain veneers are right for you, so you can feel confident in your smile again.

Our team at Parsons Smile Center understands that every patient has unique needs and goals for their smile. Therefore, when developing your personalized treatment plan, we review every option, including porcelain veneers. We may suggest patients with the following dental imperfections pursue veneers:
