Dental Veneers: What You Can Expect With Treatment

Posted September 15, 2016.

Dental veneers are small shells that can be placed over your tooth to disguise its imperfections. If you’re about to boost the appearance of your smile with dental veneers in Woburn, Massachusetts, then it’s time to prepare for your appointment! To help you, our Agape Dentist team is happy to tell you what to expect with treatment.

When you come into our office to meet with your dentist, Dr. Ghada S. Massabni, you can expect the following steps to occur:

Step 1: To begin, your dentist will need to thoroughly examine the tooth. In order to do so, she will take a series of X-rays. Once the X-rays are taken, she will determine the health and strength of your tooth and will create a customized treatment plan just for you.

Step 2: Next, your dentist will need to prepare the tooth. To do so, she will numb the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Then, she will trim the front surface of the tooth to make room for the dental veneer. When your tooth is the right size and shape, your dentist will make an impression of the tooth and will send it to the dental lab where your veneer will be created.

Step 3: When your veneer is ready, you will come back into our office for a second appointment. While you are here, your dentist will check the size, color, and fit of the veneer to make sure everything is up to par. If it’s as expected, she will cement it into place.

Now that you know what is involved in dental veneer treatment, you are all ready for your appointment! If you have any questions or if you would like to know more ways that will help you prepare for treatment, please call our office at 781.995.4445 and talk to a member of our dental team. We look forward to helping you!
