Veneer placement typically requires two appointments. During the first appointment, Dr. Spaniel will remove a small amount of tooth enamel to accommodate the veneer. Impressions will be taken and sent to the dental laboratory where your veneers will be crafted. Veneers typically take two weeks to create. In the meantime, Dr. Spaniel will place temporary veneers to protect the treated tooth or teeth.
With proper care and attention, your porcelain veneers will last for many years. You should brush and floss your veneers like your regular teeth, and have them checked by a dentist every six months. Avoid grinding or clenching your teeth, or biting down on hard objects, such as bottle caps or ice, which could possibly damage your veneers.
