We’ll schedule a consultation with your dentist
to assess your specific situation. Sometimes there’s just one tooth chipped or damaged, but often patients want all the front teeth visible when they smile to be beautified with veneers. We’ll do a complete exam to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before we proceed.
Some tooth material will be removed from the front of the tooth to allow the tooth-coloured shell to sit flush with the fronts of the other teeth. Then we’ll digitally scan the teeth that need these tooth coverings. We can do veneers for one tooth or multiple teeth simultaneously. If you only need one or two made, we will make them in-house based on your scan.
We have a full-time CEREC technician who creates the tooth-coloured shells. If you are getting several of them or changing the alignment, we’ll send your scans to the lab to make the tooth coverings. Once your custom tooth coverings are complete, we’ll clean your teeth
to ensure no bacteria gets trapped between the tooth and the veneer. We’ll make any necessary minor adjustments before we affix them.
