Deciding to improve your smile with porcelain veneers is an exciting step for you and your future smile! In the Midtown Manhattan dental practice of cosmetic dentist, Dr. Helma Philips, here are the steps you can expect as you move through the process of getting teeth veneers.
This is dedicated time for you and Dr. Philips to discuss your goals for your smile along with any oral health conditions you might be concerned about. Together, you can decide on the cosmetic dental treatment that will work best for you.
A full exam, including x-rays, a periodontal evaluation, and bite evaluation will help Dr. Philips prepare for any pre-treatment appointments necessary to ensure great results. This might include a dental cleaning and teeth whitening for overall brighter results.
Dr. Philips will design the size and shape of your veneers for both aesthetics and function. Together you decide on an appropriate shade for your new smile.
For most veneers, a small amount of enamel must be polished away to make space for the veneer, so they do not look bulky. At the time of preparation, Dr. Philips will fit you with temporary veneers while our local dental lab creates the final porcelain ones.
The final and most exciting step of the veneer process is bonding the final veneers to your teeth. Dr. Philips will secure them in place and make any minute adjustments to ensure a comfortable bite.
Now it’s time to show off your new smile to everyone you meet!
