You’re considering porcelain veneers but need more information before you decide. Mainly, you want to know what’s involved and how long it takes before you can share your gorgeous new smile.

Fortunately, you don’t have to wait long! Your dentist in Manchester, NH, can complete the entire process—from planning to placement—in three steps that take 2–3 weeks. 

Getting Porcelain Veneers in Three Steps

Step 1: Initial Veneers Appointment

The first step is an appointment with your cosmetic dentist to discuss your goals and expectations and whether or not veneers will meet them. Do you want to conceal a cracked or broken tooth? Even out wide gaps or spacing between teeth? Camouflage crooked teeth for a more harmonious appearance?

Since veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover a tooth’s front surface, all these aesthetic smile improvements are possible! 

Step 2: Designing and Customizing Your Veneers

Next comes the design and planning process. Your dentist will discuss the desired shade and shape of your final veneers to ensure a beautiful, natural-looking appearance. 

This appointment also involves preparing veneer teeth and taking impressions. Your dentist uses the impressions to create temporary veneers, and a respected custom dental lab customizes your final veneers per your dentist’s specification. 

Step 3: Placing Your Final Veneers on Your Teeth

It takes 2–3 weeks for the lab to customize your final veneers just for your unique smile. When they’re ready, the veneers will first be carefully checked for quality. 

Next, your dentist will adjust them as needed for perfect fit and to ensure the veneers don’t interfere with your dental bite. The final step is to cement your veneers securely in place. 

All that’s left for you to do is to share your beautiful new smile with the world confidently!
