What Is the process for porcelain veneers?
The first step to getting porcelain veneers is to schedule a consultation with Central Park Cosmetic Dentistry in their dental clinic in NYC. During your visit, you will discuss with Dr. DiCicco your goals and the results you would like to achieve. We will examine your teeth, take X-rays and impressions to make sure veneers are the optimal solution to your dental needs and may recommend alternatives.
The second appointment consists of taking off some layers of the teeth’s surface to allow the veneers to be bonded together. Based on your teeth impressions, a laboratory constructs your porceleian veneers. A temporary set of veneers is used until the permanent set arrives, which usually takes one to two weeks.
The final appointment is where the veneers are bonded to your teeth. Dental cement will be used to attach the veneers. Last step is to have extra cement polished off and your bite evaluated and adjusted for your maximum comfort.
