Dental veneers are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth's original enamel during a series of in-office procedures:

  1. The dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade for the veneer. 
  2. An impression will be made for the laboratory and a temporary veneer will be placed on the tooth 
  3. After the laboratory has delivered the veneer to your dentist, the temporary veneer is removed and the tooth is cleaned. The veneer is then etched (coated with a protective layer), rinsed thoroughly with water and air-dried. The adhesive is placed on the preparation, and then the cement, and the veneer is placed for exact fit and contour.
  4. The veneer is then light cured for 60 seconds on all surfaces of it to attach it to the tooth structure.
  5. Your dentist will remove any excess material and polish the margins of the veneer.

Veneers are a less intrusive option than crowns or braces. However, this treatment isn't reversible, so having them placed is a big decision. Call Contemporary Dental Associates at 631-878-4488 for a consultation with our dentist to see if veneers are right for you.
