Are you tired of tooth imperfections taking the beauty away from your smile? If so, it’s time to consider disguising those imperfections with dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed over your teeth to enhance your appearance. Generally, it takes two appointments to place the veneers because they are custom made for your specific smile.

To tell you a little more about the steps involved in the treatment, our Bertha D. Bravo, Dentist PC dental team is happy to explain the nitty-gritty details.

First, our team will create a customized treatment plan for you. To help us, explain the smile results you are trying to achieve. That way Dr. Bertha Bravo will know the type of dental veneers you need. Then, she will inspect your teeth to make sure this treatment solution is the perfect one for you. If it is, she will make sure your teeth and gums are in great condition.

Second, your dentist will prepare the teeth that are receiving the veneers by trimming their front surfaces to make room for the veneers. When your teeth are the right size and shape, she will make impressions of those teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab technician who will custom make your veneers. While you wait, you might be given temporary veneers so you can maintain a functional smile.

Third, your dentist will bond the veneers during your second appointment. Once your veneers are ready, she will check their size, fit, and color to make sure they are exactly what you’re looking for. Then, she will clean your teeth and will roughen their surfaces. When you and your teeth are ready, your dentist will apply dental-grade cement to the veneers and will place them over your teeth. To bond and harden the veneers, she will use a special ultraviolet light.
