Your Journey to a Stunning Smile: The Porcelain Veneer Process

Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a personalized consultation with your Plano cosmetic dentist, Dr. Dickson at My Dentist in Plano. During this visit, you’ll discuss your smile goals and determine if porcelain veneers are the ideal solution for you. Dr. Dickson will thoroughly examine your natural teeth and take digital X-rays to ensure your oral health is suitable for the procedure.

Preparationdentist and team looking at x-rays

Once you and Dr. Dickson decide that dental veneers are the best option, the tooth preparation phase begins. For traditional porcelain veneers, Dr. Dickson will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for your custom veneers. Tooth preparation is typically performed under local anesthesia for your comfort. Precise impressions of your teeth will then be taken to ensure your veneers fit perfectly.

Impressions and Temporary Veneers

After preparation, Dr. Dickson will send the impressions of your teeth to a top-tier dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be crafted. In the meantime, you’ll be fitted with temporary veneers to protect your teeth and give you a preview of your new smile. Remember, these transitional veneers aren’t as durable as the final product, so extra care is advised.

Bonding and Veneer Placement

Once your custom porcelain dental veneers do arrive, you’ll return to My Dentist in Plano for the final step. Dr. Dickson will carefully remove your temporary veneers and thoroughly clean your teeth. He’ll then place each porcelain veneer on the surface of the natural tooth structure, meticulously checking the fit, color, and alignment to ensure they meet your expectations. Any necessary adjustments will be made at this stage.

With your dental veneers in place, Dr. Dickson will use a special light to activate the bonding material, securing your new dental veneers. With your porcelain dental veneer procedure complete, you’ll leave our Plano office with a transformed, radiant smile.

Follow-up Appointmentsdental tools

To ensure the success of your new smile, Dr. Dickson will schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your veneers and confirm they’re properly bonded to the natural teeth and functioning correctly. Maintaining good oral hygiene paired with regular check-ups and cleanings at My Dentist in Plano are crucial for the longevity of your porcelain veneers.
