What does getting porcelain veneers involve? At Circle Drive Dental our dentists are specially trained in the technique of Lumineers by Cerinate. Consequently, no anesthetic or numbing shots are needed. Plus, no uncomfortable temporaries are required while you wait for your customized Lumineers to be created. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post-placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the start.
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
