Dental veneers can quickly and effectively offer a great solution for correcting crooked, chipped, or stained teeth. Even though veneers offer all of these benefits, they also are a low-pain procedure. Dr. Gordon Chee utilizes a local anesthetic, so patient comfort levels are high. A degree of tooth sensitivity can occur, but this discomfort is only temporary. Generally, only low pain levels exist for this confidence-generating and life-altering dental procedure.
A porcelain veneer is a slim, ceramic covering that is bonded to the front of your tooth. Porcelain veneers are a major overhaul for your smile; they whiten and brighten teeth and correct gaps between your teeth. You will work closely with Dr. Chee to decide on the look that is best for you.
Typically three dental visits are needed to complete the veneer process. The time you spend at each appointment is based on how many veneers you will have placed and your teeth’s overall condition. Dr. Chee prepares your teeth for the veneers by reshaping them. A tiny portion of the tooth surface is filed away; at this point a local anesthetic will keep you more comfortable. Dr. Chee will make a mold of your teeth and send it to a laboratory; the mold will be used to create your permanent veneers. Dr. Chee will ensure that you are pleased with the shape and color of your veneers before they are carefully bonded to your teeth.
