Porcelain Dental Veneers Process

The Experience of Getting Dental Veneers at Tailored Teeth

At Tailored Teeth, we pride ourselves on providing a personalized and meticulous approach to dental veneers. Our process ensures that each patient receives a smile that is perfectly suited to their facial features and personal preferences. Here’s a detailed look at what you can expect when you choose to enhance your smile with dental veneers at our practice.

Step 1: Initial Consultation and Digital Records Collection

Your journey begins with an initial consultation where we focus on understanding your aesthetic goals and dental needs. This appointment is crucial for setting the foundation for your smile transformation. During this visit, we also gather comprehensive records to “digitise” you as a patient. These records include:

  • Video Documentation: Capturing your natural expressions and speech to understand how your smile integrates with your overall appearance.
  • Portrait Photography: High-quality images of your face to aid in designing a smile that complements your facial structure.
  • Clinical Photography: Detailed photos of your teeth and gums to assess your current dental condition.
  • 3D Scans: Advanced scanning technology to create precise digital models of your teeth and bite.
  • X-Rays (if indicated): Radiographic images to examine the underlying bone structure and detect any potential issues.

This comprehensive data allows our team to create a customized treatment plan that aligns with your desired outcomes.

Step 2: Smile Design Try-On

The second appointment is all about ensuring your new smile fits you perfectly. Between your first and second visits, our clinicians use the collected data to design your ideal smile. During the “try-on” session, you will have the opportunity to preview this design. This step is crucial for several reasons:

  • Fit and Functionality: Ensuring the veneers will function well with your bite and other oral dynamics.
  • Aesthetic Alignment: Making sure the design harmonizes with your facial features and meets your aesthetic expectations.
  • Patient Feedback: Allowing you to provide input and request any adjustments to ensure you are completely satisfied with the final outcome.

Step 3: Teeth Preparation

Once the smile design is finalized, we move on to the teeth preparation phase. This step involves shaping your natural teeth to optimize the bond strength and aesthetics of the porcelain veneer material. Our skilled clinicians will carefully prepare your teeth, ensuring minimal discomfort and preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. This preparation is essential for creating a strong and durable bond between your teeth and the veneers.

Step 4: Permanent Bonding of Veneers

The final step in your veneer journey is the permanent bonding of the veneers to your teeth. This process is performed with precision to ensure a seamless fit and natural appearance. Using advanced bonding techniques and high-quality materials, our team will securely attach the veneers to your teeth, giving you a beautifully enhanced smile that feels natural and looks stunning.
