What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, durable sheaths that are individually designed to fit over the visible surface of teeth that are gapped, misaligned, damaged, or discolored. They’re typically crafted from materials like ceramic and porcelain because these can be customized to mimic your natural tooth enamel, making your veneers look virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth. Because each veneer is made separately, this treatment is highly customizable, allowing you to restore your entire smile or just a few unsightly teeth, depending on your goals.

The Process of Getting Veneers

When you get dental veneers from your cosmetic dentist in Chevy Chase, Dr. Yu, you can expect the process to take place over the course of two to three appointments.

  • The Consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Yu will discuss your smile goals with you and examine your mouth, making sure that no lingering oral health problems need to be addressed before moving forward with the treatment and ensuring that you’re a good candidate. She’ll then collaborate with you on your treatment plan so you know exactly what to expect from the process.
  • Preparing the Natural Teeth. To accommodate your veneers, a small amount of your natural enamel will be removed.
  • Capturing Impressions. We’ll capture a digital impression with our iTero 3D imaging computer to send off to our dental laboratory to craft your veneers.
  • Placing Temporary Veneers. To protect your prepared teeth and give you a good idea of what your final results will look like, we’ll place temporary veneers.
  • Removing the Temporaries & Placing the Permanent Veneers. As soon as we receive your permanent veneers from our dental laboratory, we’ll call you in to remove your temporaries and place them. Before cementing them onto the teeth, Dr. Yu will closely examine them and make sure they meet her high-quality standards.
