Veneers in Santa Monica


What is involved in getting veneers?

1. Discussion with your dentist – During your initial dentist appointment, you can ask our Santa Monica dentists any questions you have about the process of getting veneers. The dentist will examine your teeth, take photos, X-rays and/or impressions. These impressions, or models, of your teeth and mouth will be sent to a lab, who will then custom make your veneers.

2. At the following appointment, our trained dentists will remove some of your natural tooth enamel so that there’s room to add the veneer on top of your teeth. Next, veneers will be fitted in your mouth to make sure the fit and color are just right. Color and trim may be adjusted for the perfect look. Then, your tooth will be cleaned and cemented for the veneer to stay on. Finally, the dentist will use a light beam to harden the cement to the veneer and your natural tooth.
