How do dentists apply dental veneers to teeth?

Dental veneers are thin chips of engineered ceramic that cover part of all of a tooth’s front surface. This standard cosmetic dental treatment solves a range of tooth flaws from discoloration, worn enamel, chips, cracks, or oddly shaped teeth by completely covering them and creating a new tooth surface. Your veneer is designed just for you to fit your smile in form and color.

The Procedure for Veneers at Anderson Dental

Your porcelain veneer journey begins with a consultation and dental exam to ensure this is the best restoration for your smile and budget. Then in preparation, your cosmetic dentist in Champaign, IL removes a small amount of tooth enamel so that the veneer fits into your tooth rather than on top of it.

Then we take an impression of the prepared tooth and find the precise match for your natural teeth. We send this information to a high-quality dental lab that makes your veneer within a week or two. You then return to our dental office so we can bond your final restoration to your tooth, ensuring a seamless fit.

Because of the bonding resins we use and the enamel we remove before application, we consider a dental veneer to be a permanent restoration. Therefore, we will help you care for it and the underlying tooth structure so you can enjoy a bright smile for years.
