porcelain veneers preparation

Dental veneers is a good choice for your smile makeover. Porcelain veneers and lumineers look very natural. They are like your own teeth but in their perfect shape, color and condition. It is not possible to differ them from the natural teeth if they are inserted by a professional dentist.

Dental veneers have the advantages that make people take the decision to insert them.

So How the Teeth are Prepared for the Veneering Process?

First of all there is nothing that is needed to be done by you. Your teeth will be prepared by the dentist during your first target visit.

1) Step 1: Teeth Shaving

Veneers insertion in Staten Island New York is one of the most sparing procedures for teeth. Your natural teeth stay healthy, though the enamel is shaved down alittle. The veneer is thin and the thickness of the enamel that needs to be shaved down is equal to the thickness of the veneer. It is like a new strong protective shell for your tooth.
Dental veneer covers the front and the sides of the tooth. And its typical thickness is 0.5 mm. But it may vary even within 1 tooth. In some locations of the tooth veneer will be thicker and in some thinner to align the tooth surface.

2) Step 2: Temporary Veneers Wearing

After the theeth are shaved the molds are taken to make the permanent perfectly fit veneers. To fabricate your veneers takes 7-10 days. During this time you’ll wear the temporary veneers provided by your dentist.

3) Step 3: Dental Veneers Insertion

Once your permanent veneers are ready they’ll need to be applied. The average time for 1 veneer application is 20 minutes. If 8 veneers will need to be inserted it will take approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes.
