Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Creating porcelain veneers is a multiple step process. First, you will meet with Dr. Woods for a detailed consultation. As with any dental procedure, your dentist will perform a thorough oral examination to ensure that you are a candidate for porcelain veneers. You will have the opportunity to talk with Dr. Woods about your goals and expectations during this first consultation. We may also take x-rays and impressions of your teeth once it is determined that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.
Next, Dr. Woods will prepare your teeth for porcelain veneers. With traditional porcelain veneers, a very small amount of enamel, roughly equal to the thickness of your new porcelain veneer, will be removed from your existing teeth. This will prevent your new smile from appearing bulky. This process also allows for a strong and durable attachment of the veneer to your natural tooth structure. Dr. Woods is very gentle and will ensure your comfort at each stage of the procedure. Next, our team will take an impression and Dr. Woods will work with the lab to create the most beautiful and appropriate veneers for your smile. Dr. Woods always considers appearance, durability and your individual preferences and when providing specifications to our trusted lab. We use only the highest quality materials for perfect results.
Once your permanent porcelain veneers arrive, you will once again meet with Dr. Woods at our Alpharetta dental office for the final application of your porcelain veneers. This process involves prepping the tooth, carefully placing and bonding the veneers. Dr. Woods has a steady hand and an eye for beauty. His dental veneers are simply beautiful.
A follow up visit will be scheduled in a few weeks to see how your gums are adjusting to the new porcelain veneers, and to make any necessary final adjustments to your bite.
