What’s the process for getting porcelain veneers?

The first step when you’re considering any type of cosmetic dentistry is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Chen at our Aurora dental office. You probably already have a clear idea of what results you’d like to see, and Dr. Chen can help you explore all available treatment options to attain them.

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they’re so versatile. These super-thin shells of porcelain or ceramic create a new tooth surface that masks whatever flaws are beneath it. These flaws may include chipped, cracked or broken teeth, uneven spacing, and even slight tooth misalignment.

Once you and Dr. Chen agree porcelain veneers are the right choice, we’ll take digital impressions of your teeth and select a tooth shade that closely matches the rest of your smile. A custom dental lab will fabricate your veneers to our exact specifications.

Dr. Chen will prepare your tooth or teeth for the veneers by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel equal to the thickness of the veneer. He then checks your customized veneers for fit, makes any adjustments, and bonds them to your teeth.

Porcelain dental veneers are very durable and can last as long as ten years, but they are prone to chipping. Avoiding hard or crunchy foods can help you avoid damage and keep your veneers looking great for many years to come.
