Veneer placement usually requires two visits to complete the process, and little or no anesthesia is required during the procedure. On your first visit to the dentist, a very thin layer of enamel is removed from your teeth. Imagine that it is smaller than the thickness of a fingernail. The dentist then makes impressions to create a mold to make your veneer permanent.
Usually, the entire veneer process will require just three appointments. It's not difficult to take care of veneers. You should regularly brush and floss around your tooth, just as you care for your natural teeth. You should see your dentist for regular checkups, which will ensure that the veneers are firmly attached to the tooth surface.
Finally, at the final visit, the dentist or prosthodontist will attach your custom dental veneers to your teeth using a powerful specialized adhesive agent. That said, with good oral hygiene, dental veneers could easily last more than 20 years, at which point they will need to be replaced. On the second visit, the tooth surface is carefully cleaned and the temporary veneer is removed before the permanent veneer. Like natural teeth, which are prone to decay due to lack of oral hygiene, dental veneers can become stained when exposed to beverages and food without adequate oral hygiene.
Porcelain dental veneers are a thin layer of porcelain material that adheres to the surface of the tooth. Generally speaking, dental porcelain is the industry standard for realistic, durable and aesthetically pleasing dental work materials. The bad news is that dental insurance companies almost always consider a porcelain veneer to be a cosmetic and, therefore, it is not covered or is only covered to a limited extent by insurance.
