What Is the Process for Veneers?

Transform your smile at Hawley Lane Dental.

Veneers may be done with or without local anesthesia (Novocain). On the first visit, your dentist may shape the front surfaces of the teeth that are to have veneers. This will prevent the veneers from looking too thick or bulky and give the finished veneers a natural appearance. An impression or mold of the shaped teeth and opposing teeth will be taken and sent to the lab.

The dentist may place temporary veneers depending on how much the tooth was shaped. At the next appointment, the dentist will try on the finished veneers and check the fit, color, shape, and bite. It is best to look at the veneers once they are in place but not cemented to approve the way they look in the mouth. Once the veneers are ready to be affixed to the teeth, the dentist will use a strong cement that will hold them in place over the teeth.
