What Is the Process of Dental Veneers?
Hi, I’m Dr Rita Trak, principal dentist and founder of Dental & Skin Clinic here in East Bentleigh in Melbourne.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting Oliver from Clarinda. He told me that he had always been interested in improving his smile. During our cosmetic consultation, I talked about porcelain veneers, so he asked, “What is the process of porcelain veneers, how does it work?”
That was such an interesting question. So I thought I’d share with you our unique process of how we do porcelain veneers here at Dental & Skin Clinic.
Dental veneers I’d say are about 70% to 80% of what we do here at the clinic. And so we’ve got a very streamlined process from start to finish to ensure we create a beautiful and natural smile for every one of our clients.
Our Porcelain Veneer Smile Makeover is done in five appointments in five weeks.
Involves a cosmetic consultation, where we take records of your teeth. This includes high quality photos, videos, x-rays and a bite analysis. During this consultation, we will be able to show you your new smile digitally. Once you accept your new smile design, we are ready to move forward, and we will move forward to the next appointment, called the Trial Smile.
The Trial Smile normally takes place about a week after the first appointment. The trial smile is the appointment where you actually receive a blueprint of what your final permanent veneers will look like. The trial smile period goes for about three weeks.
The third appointment is usually about one or two days later. And so you’re still in your trial smile, and this is the appointment where you give us feedback. If there’s something you don’t like, we will do the adjustments. So this appointment is called the Feedback Appointment. To be honest, most clients are so happy with their Trial Smile, that the feedback we get is pretty much nothing. So this appointment is more for us to look at your smile with fresh eyes and do any fine-tuning.
After the feedback appointment is our fourth appointment, and that is about three weeks later. This is the appointment we get your permanent porcelain veneers. This is always a really exciting appointment for our clients, because this is where they will have their smile transformed! But it doesn’t end there, there is one more appointment.
The fifth appointment is about a week later, and that is when we do some fine-tuning. It is also the appointment where you get your aftercare guard. And that’s it, from start to finish, five appointments, five weeks. It’s that simple.
Dental veneers will give off a dramatic improvement to your smile. If this is something that interests you, maybe you’ve been thinking about it for a while, we’d love to get to know you and take you through the steps.
