If you’re interested in knowing the details of dental veneer placement, our Riverdale Oral Health and Implant Center team is more than happy to help you! Dental veneers in Riverdale, New York, are successful products that can give you the smile results you are looking for in just a short amount of time. The treatment is simple and easy, and it involves the following steps:

Step No. 1: Diagnosis and treatment planning
When you first come into our office, tell your dentist about the goals you would like to achieve. If your dentist knows what you’re looking for in a cosmetic treatment, he will be able to give you the results you desire. Then, if dental veneers are the right treatment for you, he will explain the treatment process and will take X-rays of your smile.

Step No. 2: Tooth preparation
Next, your dentist will prepare the tooth for the veneer. The preparation will involve your dentist trimming the front surface of your tooth to make room for the product. Before trimming, your dentist will numb the area with a local anesthetic. Then, once the tooth is the right size and shape, he will make impressions of the tooth and will send those impressions to a dental lab. The technicians will then create your veneer.

Step No. 3: Veneer bonding
Once your veneer is made, your dentist will check the size, color, and fit of the product. If it provides perfect results, your dentist will clean the tooth and will roughen up the surface. Then, he will apply special cement to the veneer and will place the veneer over the tooth. A light will then be used to harden the cement quickly.
