Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a number of cosmetic imperfections to improve the appearance of your smile. We use veneers as a solution for teeth that have fractures, chips, slight misalignments, gaps, or stains that are resistant to teeth whitening treatments.
Same-day veneers offer all of the benefits of traditional porcelain veneers without the inconvenience of needing multiple appointments and temporary restorations. Like porcelain veneers, same-day CEREC veneers are thin shells that are designed to fit onto your teeth to cover over any cosmetic issues, but the key difference is the CEREC veneers require only a single appointment to complete.
What Happens During a Same-Day Veneer Procedure
We take a collaborative approach to same-day veneers, working closely with you to understand your treatment goals and what you’d like to improve about the appearance of your smile. The first steps in the process involve determining the best size, shape, and shade for your veneers and using CEREC technology to create a 3D model of your smile that is used to design veneers just for you.
Our in-office milling machine fabricates your veneers onsite and your teeth are prepared to have them placed by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel. This creates a rough surface for your veneers to bond to and keeps them from looking bulky. Finally, your veneers are carefully positioned and bonded in place.
Frequently Asked Questions About Same-Day Veneers
How quickly can I get veneers?
Traditional porcelain veneers usually take two to three weeks from start to finish, but CEREC veneers can be completed in a single visit to our office.
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
There is a common misconception that veneers ruin teeth, but preparing your teeth for veneers involves only removing the outermost layer of tooth enamel, which doesn’t compromise the overall structure of your teeth. That said, once this enamel is removed, you will always need to wear veneers—you cannot decide to go back to your natural teeth, as they won’t have the enamel needed for protection.
Are veneers permanent?
Yes, veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth and can be expected to last for decades with proper care and maintenance.
Can I get same-day veneers on all of my teeth?
It’s possible to get same-day veneers on all of the teeth that are visible when you smile, but veneers aren’t generally placed on molars.
Who is a good candidate for same-day veneers?
If your teeth and gums are in good condition and you don’t grind your teeth or clench your jaw, you are a candidate for same-day veneers.
