How Long Does Getting Veneers Take?

Joyful dates

Except for CAD/CAM veneers, which are made in small milling machines, veneers are not made at dental offices. Instead, they are made by hand at a dental laboratory before being sent to the office where they will be placed by a dentist. As a result, the full process can take one to two weeks. Here is more about how long the veneers process takes.

Preparation for Veneers

The first visit to our dentist for veneers involves having the teeth prepared. This involves removing some of the outer tooth enamel, ensuring that the addition of veneers will not result in excessively large teeth. Afterwards, bite impressions are taken for use in shaping the new veneers.

Veneers Placement

One to two weeks after their preparation appointment, patients return to our dental veneer dentist in Los Angeles to have their veneers permanently attached. This involves bonding the veneers in place with composite bonding resin. Finally, the veneers are cured with a special light, and patients can immediately start enjoying their new smile.

Numerous dental flaws can be concealed with porcelain veneers, and the results can last for decades. Patients can contact our dentist to schedule a consultation and learn more about getting veneers.
