Do you want to improve the appearance of your smile but you’re a little nervous about being in the dental chair? If so, our Mill Valley Dental team is more than happy to tell you about the treatment so you can feel more calm and comfortable at your appointment.
Dental veneers in Mill Valley, California, are beautiful products that can enhance your appearance in a short amount of time. The treatment involved in placing a veneer is quick, easy, and painless and it involves the following steps:
Step 1: First, your dentist needs to make sure dental veneers are the best treatment for you. So, he will need to examine your teeth, gums, and bones by taking a series of X-rays. If veneers are the best option for you, he will create a customized treatment plan that will help you reach your smile goals.
Step 2: When you are ready, your dentist will prepare the tooth for the veneer. The preparation involves numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic and then trimming the outer layer of the tooth to make room for the crown. Then, he will make an impression of the tooth and will send that impression to the dental lab where your veneer will be made.
Step 3: When your veneer is created, you will come back into our office to have it placed. But, before it’s cemented over your tooth, your dentist will make sure it’s the right size, shape, and color.
