Are you working toward your perfect smile by taking advantage of dental veneers in Macclenny, Florida? If so, good for you! Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed over your teeth to beautify your smile. In order to place the veneers, there are multiple steps involved, which could require two separate appointments. To help you know a little more about the treatment, our Margaret L. Romeo, DMD dental team is happy to explain the nitty-gritty details.

First, our team will create an individualized treatment plan just for you. When you come into our office, tell Dr. Margaret L. Romeo all about your smile goals. This will help her know exactly which treatment is best for you and your smile. If dental veneers are the best treatment option, she will explain the details of the placement process and will take X-rays of your teeth.

Second, your dentist will prepare the teeth that are receiving the veneers by trimming their front surfaces to make room for the veneers. When your teeth are the right size and shape, she will make impressions of those teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab technician who will custom make your veneers. While you wait, you might be given temporary veneers so you can maintain a functional smile.

Third, your dentist will bond the veneers during your second appointment. Once your veneers are ready, she will check their size, fit, and color to make sure they are exactly what you’re looking for. Then, she will clean your teeth and will roughen their surfaces. When you and your teeth are ready, your dentist will apply dental-grade cement to the veneers and will place them over your teeth. To bond and harden the veneers, she will use a special ultraviolet light.

As you can see, placing dental veneers over your smile is simple and easy, and it can give you the dream smile you’re looking for.
