If you’re about to correct your tooth imperfections with dental veneers, get ready to enhance your smile. Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that are placed over your teeth to disguise their chips, discoloration, and other imperfections. In order to place the shells, there are a few steps required, which could require two separate appointments.

To help you know a little more about the treatment involved, our Oquirrh Dental dental team is happy to explain the details.

First, our team will create a customized treatment plan for you. To help us, explain the smile results you are trying to achieve. That way Dr. Troy L. Sargent will know the type of dental veneers you need. Then, he will inspect your teeth to make sure this treatment solution is the perfect one for you. If it is, he will make sure your teeth and gums are in great condition.

Second, your dentist will prepare the teeth. This is done by trimming the enamel to make room for the veneers. Typically, only a half millimeter will need to be removed from each tooth. When your teeth are ready, he will take impressions of them and will send those impressions to a dental lab where your veneers will be custom made.

Third, your dentist will bond the veneers at your second appointment. During this appointment, your dentist will check the fit, size, and color of the veneers. If they are perfect for your smile, he will deeply clean the teeth and roughen their surfaces. Next, he will apply special dental-grade cement to the veneers and will place them over the teeth. Finally, he will use an ultraviolet light to harden the cement and bond the veneers.

Once the veneer is bonded to the tooth, your imperfections will disappear and you will have the smile you have always wanted.
