What can I expect during treatment?

Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

Most veneer cases begin with a consultation and exam. At this visit, we’ll discuss the concerns you have about your smile, what enhancements you would like to make, and any long or short-term goals that we need to keep in mind. From there, we’ll be able to review which aesthetic services are most appropriate — such as veneers, whitening, etc. — and create a customized plan that outlines the process step by step.

For more complex cases, we may recommend a diagnostic wax up or a digital smile design before the treatment is started. This model allows you to preview the veneer design proposed by our ceramists so that it’s easier to envision what your final results will look like. You may even be able to try them in (although they’re not permanent).

When you’re ready to move forward, we’ll schedule a preparation appointment where a thin layer of enamel is buffed away (to prevent a bulky appearance once your veneers are bonded in place) and an impression taken of your teeth. You’ll wear a set of temporary veneers while your permanent ones are designed at our lab. About two weeks later, you’ll return to have the ceramic ones bonded onto your teeth.
