Your dentist will reshape the specific tooth surface to equal the veneer’s thickness he intends to attach at this stage. You will both decide whether to use anesthetics to numb the region before trimming off the enamel.
After that, the dentist will make an model/impression of the tooth and take it to a specialist laboratory. They will use this impression to make a suitable veneer for you.
The standard waiting period for the model ranges from two to four. The dentist will advise you on when it is appropriate to come back. In the meantime, you may have a temporary dental veneer fixed as you wait.
When the veneer is complete, the dentist will try to fit it on the tooth to see if it matches the shape and color. He will repeatedly remove and trim the veneer until he gets the perfect fit. To adjust the color, he might use a shade of cement.
After that, they will clean, polish, and etch your tooth to prepare it for the veneer. The dentist will then apply a special cement on the veneer before placing it on the tooth.
When the veneer is in its perfect position, he/she will shine a light beam to harden the joint.
Finally, the dentist will remove any excess cement on the tooth’s surface while checking the biting and making necessary adjustments. You may have to do follow up visits where the dentist will examine the development of the gums and veneer placement.
