Patients often ask about the process necessary to obtain porcelain veneers. First, they need to consult with their dentist at Innovative Dental By Dr. A. This is done during an initial examination in which Dr. A will determine if patients are proper candidates for this method of repair. Some patients may choose to move forward with an alternative such as composite resin bonding. Then, the tooth is prepared by removing a thin portion of enamel. Impressions are made and used to create the veneers, and then they are bonded onto the tooth. The entire process from start to finish can take approximately two weeks.
