Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that can enhance your smile’s appearance and give you the self-confidence you’re looking for. One of the treatments available in this branch of dentistry is the placement of dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thin shells that look exactly like perfect tooth enamel. They are placed over the front surfaces of your teeth to disguise your smile imperfections. Oftentimes, it takes two appointments to completely stall one or more veneers. To tell you more about this treatment, our Kirkwood Dental dental team is happy to explain the steps required.

First, our team will create a customized treatment plan for you. To help us, explain the smile results you are trying to achieve. That way Dr. Vinh T. Pham will know the type of dental veneers you need. Then, he will inspect your teeth to make sure this treatment solution is the perfect one for you. If it is, he will make sure your teeth and gums are in great condition.

Second, your dentist will prepare the teeth that are receiving the veneers by trimming their front surfaces to make room for the veneers. When your teeth are the right size and shape, he will make impressions of those teeth and will send those impressions to a dental lab technician who will custom make your veneers. While you wait, you might be given temporary veneers so you can maintain a functional smile.

Third, your dentist will check and bond the veneers during a second appointment. Once your veneers are ready, Dr. Vinh T. Pham will check the color, size, and fit of the veneers and will make any necessary adjustments. Then, he will deeply clean the teeth and roughen the surfaces. This will help the veneers adhere to the teeth. Next, Dr. Vinh T. Pham will apply dental-grade cement to the veneers and will place them over your teeth. To keep them in place, your dentist will use a special ultraviolet light to harden the cement.
