On the first visit, study models, scans, x-rays and photos are taken. The second visit is the longest and this is where the teeth are prepped where a layer of your tooth’s surface is removed.
A scan is taken after your teeth have been prepared which is sent to the lab for fabrication. The ceramist constructs the veneer but they also look at photos taken of the teeth before and after preparation as well as the detailed instructions on shade and shape prescribed.
The placement procedure is also a time consuming and delicate process and sometimes revisions are needed to achieve the desired result.
