Hand Crafting a New Smile
Dr Pohl Dr Pohl uses veneers to create the appearance of beautiful white, straight teeth. Each veneer is a thin porcelain “shell” that is bonded to the front of a tooth, enhancing the way it looks when you smile. Patients are able to cover areas that cause them to be self-conscious and have a new smile in just a couple of visits.
What’s the Procedure for Getting a Dental Veneer?
Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process described below.
Diagnosis and treatment planning. This first step involves your active participation. At this appointment Dr Pohl will determine the result that you are trying to achieve and will examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve and some of its limitations. Xrays and impressions of your teeth may be taken at this appointment for treatment planning.
Preparation. To prepare a tooth for a veneer, Dr Pohl will remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface. An impression is taken which is sent to a dental laboratory that will fabricate the porcelain veneers. Temporary veneers are placed on the prepared teeth for the two weeks that it takes for the veneers to be made.
