Dental veneer placement is similar to the process of placing a crown. Chicago Dental Esthetics starts the process with a three-dimensional scan or impression. The teeth are subsequently re-contoured to a minor degree in preparation for the placement of the dental veneers. Our dentist will apply temporary veneers until the permanent veneers are made. However, if your veneers are of the composite or no-prep variety, you won’t have to use temporary veneers and wait for the permanent ones to be made. Read about the longevity of veneers.
Veneers are connected to the teeth with the use of dental cement. Layering is used if the veneers are of the composite variety. The cementing process involves the use of adhesives to ensure the veneers stick to the teeth. The veneers added to your teeth are uber-thin layers or shells that replicate the aesthetic of natural teeth. In fact, no one will have any idea you are using dental veneers when you open your mouth to smile, laugh, talk, yawn, etc. The end result of dental veneers is a revitalization of teeth that have darkened, have become discolored, or have spots. In fact, dental veneers can also be used to improve the aesthetic of fractured and chipped teeth, teeth with length issues, teeth that have alignment problems, and teeth with gaps between them.
