How long does it take to get Dental Veneers?
Deciding to move forwards with porcelain veneers is a very straightforward procedure, yet so many patients are concerned about how long this procedure may take or how many times they are required to return to the dental clinic. Surprisingly, this procedure can involve as little as 2 – 3 visits. Dr. Malouf always recommends obtaining a dental checkup first to ensure there are no major complications that could delay getting porcelain veneers.
The process begins with an initial consultation with Dr. James Malouf where diagnostic images and impressions are taken and the patient discusses their smile objectives. Dr. Malouf also takes this opportunity to correct other dental flaws or gum disease before dental veneers can be considered or planned for.
During the next appointment, temporary veneers are placed in the patients mouth and the patient decides after a week or so if they would like any adjustments to their new smile. The permanent porcelain veneers are then bonded into place and the process is complete. No recovery time is required and there is little to no pain post procedure too.
Porcelain veneers are strong and durable and mimic natural teeth closely and can reinforce and align the bite making the smile not only aesthetically beautiful, but functionally stronger too. Dr. James Malouf has performed this dental veneers treatment in his Brisbane office many times and is considered a top cosmetic dentist fully up to date on all the latest technology and strategies for a new smile design.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
