Before dental veneers are fitted a general check-up is needed to ascertain the patient’s health and ensure a successful result.
Once they are deemed to be in good health, a photographic and bite study is carried out on the patient. After this stage, a digital design of the veneers to be fitted is done to define the size, shape and colour that best suits the patient.
Next, we prepare the teeth for the veneers; measurements are taken using an intra-oral digital scanner for a virtual mould on which the veneers are made. We place a set of provisional veneers with the same shape and size as the final veneers to be fitted to the patient while the porcelain veneers are made.
Lastly, the provisional veneers are removed and the definitive porcelain veneers are fitted. This is done around 10 days after the provisional veneers are fitted.
