Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Porcelain veneer fabrication takes 5 to 7 days to finish with 2 to 3 appointment visits. The procedure begins with a thorough teeth and gums examination, prepare teeth, take impression, and temporary veneer placement. Next appointment is scheduled after several days to fix-in veneers.
Avoid eating sticky, chewy and brittle foods like gum, caramels, and candies, ice cubes or even biting fingernails. Maintain good oral hygiene, brush at least twice a day and floss as often as possible and a regular visit to the dentist.
