Veneer - before

 Step 1: Trimming the tooth: The specialist sculpts the visible surface of the tooth by removing approximately 1-3 mm enamel. This means, that veneers cannot be taken off, once adhered. Preparing a tooth for a veneer comes with minimal tooth enamel loss compared to dental crowns.

Step 2: Taking the impression: Impressions have two functions. Firstly, they are the base the dental technician is going to work with, when making the veneers. Secondly, they work as “face-mold” for the temporary shell the doctor puts on the surface of the teeth. The function of the temporary shells is to protect the prepared surface of the teeth while the technician works on the veneers.

Step 3: Choosing the shade: Do you long for sparkling white teeth? Would you go for a more natural look? Pick the colour you wish, and what’s best for you together with the specialist.

Step 4: Pre-cementation and evaluation: Your veneers are finished. The doctor is now pre-cementing them, to have a look at the result. You can have a look at them under natural and artificial light, to see the colour. Would you like to have them lighter? Darker? What about the form? We can do little changes now if needed.

Veneer - after

Step 5: Permanent bonding: On the fifth, also last workday, the doctor bonds the veneers permanently. Your perfect smile is now finished to show and enjoy. At the end of the last treatment, you will be given instructions and guidance about proper caring.
