The team at DNTL Studio may recommend veneers if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth in the front of your mouth. These thin restorations can dramatically enhance your teeth when you smile.
Most patients can expect veneers to take 2-3 visits to place. During the first appointment, the team asks questions about your aesthetic goals and expectations. Next, they prepare your teeth for veneers.
After taking digital X-rays and planning your treatment, the team removes up 0.5 mm of your tooth enamel. This ensures your veneers can blend in seamlessly without appearing bulky or unnatural.
