How Long Does it Take to Get Dental Veneers?

dental-veneersHave you ever looked into the dental work you need to correct your smile but stopped short after learning what’s involved? If so, you aren’t the only one. Advances in dental care have made it possible to remedy just about any problem but not without a significant investment of time and money. There are, however, a great number of cosmetic issues that can be solved through a simpler alternative – dental veneers.

Arcadia residents have discovered Dr. Q Dental as their source for quality porcelain veneers to solve issues like chipped or stained teeth without major dental work. In most cases, veneers can be placed in just two visits, giving you a whole new smile without any of the downtime that comes with surgical methods.

What’s Involved in Placing Dental Veneers?

Arcadia patients can expect the following when having dental veneers placed:

  1. Once Dr. Q has determined you’re a good candidate for veneers, she will prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel from the target teeth. This isn’t particularly painful but can be done under a local anesthetic for your comfort if you prefer.
  2. Q will send specifications to special lab for creation of your custom veneers. Only US labs are used to ensure the quality of the materials used.
  3. In just 1-2 weeks, your veneers will be ready for placement. Dr. Q will clean, polish, and etch your teeth to ensure a perfect fit then attach the veneers to your teeth with a powerful bonding agent. The veneers will be cleaned and examined and by the end of this appointment, you’ll have smile that appears perfect and natural.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Not only do veneers look great, but they can solve a number of cosmetic dental issues. Veneers can reface teeth that are unresponsive to whitening treatments, crooked and broken teeth can receive attractive new fronts, and even gaps between teeth can be addressed to provide enhanced symmetry to your smile. Because we use only porcelain veneers, they are highly durable and can also be cared for by simply continuing to brush and floss like you normally would.
