Some tooth structure is removed in order to make room for the veneer material that is used to prevent them from breaking. In some cases, very minimal prepping is needed. After prepping the teeth, Dr. Gomes-Moore places temporary veneers that mimic what the actual cosmetic prosthetic will look like. It is during this time that the patient can state if they want to make any changes to what the veneers will look like. Once you're happy with the esthetics, an impression is taken of the temporaries so that the lab can replicate the shape, size, and shade of the veneers for the final veneers.
When the veneers are back from the lab, Dr. Gomes-Moore will remove the temporaries, try in the veneers with a temporary paste, so that you can approve the final look before they are cemented. Once approved, Dr. Gomes-Moore cements the veneers with permanent cement and removes the excess cement and you will be ready to show off your brand-new esthetic smile!
Dr. Gomes-Moore not only uses industry-leading techniques and labs, but also has an artistic attention to detail. With her background in studio art, Dr. Gomes-Moore is able to use veneers to craft you a truly beautiful smile. She takes the time to understand your unique smile and will design personalized veneers that enhance not only the esthetics of your teeth, but your overall appearance too!
