What to Expect: The Porcelain Veneers Process in Sacramento
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain. This type of ceramic is used to replace worn or flawed tooth structure. After veneers have been deemed the appropriate way to cover stains, chips, gaps, or to reshape teeth, the doctors will prepare both the dental material, which will be your new tooth structure, as well as the surface of your tooth.
Preparing the Tooth
The veneers will be applied to the front of the treated teeth. To make room for this these thin sheets of porcelain, your enamel must be reduced. “Reduction” refers to removing a small amount of natural tooth enamel. Modern veneers require very little reduction of natural tooth structure for the most natural feel and look.
Preparing the Veneer
The process starts by taking impressions. These models of your mouth guide the design of the veneers, so they blend in well with the rest of your teeth. Impressions and any other information about your teeth will then be sent to Drs. Kosta and Kristen Adams’ trusted lab partners. These lab technicians will make veneers to your unique specifications.
You will be fitted with temporary veneers as the lab makes your permanent set. Within one to three weeks, your new porcelain veneers will be sent to the office. You will then return for a second appointment, during which time the dentist will remove the temporary restorations and place the permanent ones. After checking for proper fit and appearance, the doctor will use premium bonding materials to cement the veneers for long-lasting durability and strength.
