Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
What does getting porcelain veneers and crowns involve?
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. An impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and Dr. Hoye. On the second visit, the veneer is bonded onto your tooth using a light beam to harden and set the bond.
Porcelain veneers and crowns both require two office visits. At the first appointment, we remove any old bonding and prepare the teeth. We also take impressions and choose the shade and shape of the porcelain. When you leave the office, temporary bonding is used to cover the prepared teeth. Approximately two to three weeks later, the porcelain veneers or crowns are permanently cemented.
