The Veneers Process
Enhancing your smile with veneers is a fast and easy process that only requires two quick appointments. During the first visit, Dr. Kovacevic will closely examine your teeth and take a precise impression of your smile. He’ll use this impression to customize your porcelain veneers, a process that typically takes about two weeks.
When your veneers are ready, you’ll return to our practice so Dr. Kovacevic can complete the procedure. He’ll ensure that the fit and color of your veneers are perfect before applying a dental adhesive and bonding them to your teeth. Once they’re in place, all that’s left to do is enjoy your sparkling new smile.
Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Is the veneers procedure painful?
Before placing your veneers, Dr. Kovacevic will administer a local anesthetic to numb your teeth and gums. This will ensure you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. You may experience some mild discomfort right after treatment, but this will fade within a few hours.
How long do veneers last?
With proper care, veneers typically left for seven to fifteen years. To get the most out of your veneers, avoid damaging habits like chewing ice cubes or biting your fingernails.
How many appointments does the procedure require?
Veneers are a fast procedure that only requires two appointments. After your first visit, it usually takes about two weeks to customize your veneers. Then, you can return to our office to complete your treatment.
Does dental insurance cover veneers?
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment, so insurance will rarely cover them. However, there may be some exceptions depending on your plan.
What if my veneer falls off or is damaged?
If your veneer falls out or gets damaged, try your best to keep it clean and contact us right away. It’s crucial that you don’t attempt to fix the veneer yourself, as this can lead to permanent damage.
How do I take care of my veneers?
No special cleaning tools or solutions are necessary for veneers. To keep them healthy, simply brush your teeth and floss every day.
Do porcelain veneers work for crooked teeth?
Yes! In some cases, veneers can be used to help crooked teeth appear straighter.
