If you have misshapen or discolored teeth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Veneers are not good for individuals who grind, have poor oral hygiene habits, or have insufficient tooth enamel.
If in your treatment planning appointment you have been selected as a good candidate for veneers, during the second appointment, the dentist will carefully remove minimal enamel in preparation for your new veneers. This tooth reduction will allow the veneers to lie flat, in line with surrounding teeth.
At your final appointment, the veneer may be trimmed to allow it to fit well and to help achieve your desired look. Your tooth is then prepared for bonding and cementation to the veneer. A follow-up visit may be recommended to check on the bite as well as the progress of your gum tissue to acclimate to the new veneer.
