How are Veneers Placed?
Before placing veneers, your dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel on your teeth for the veneers to stick. They will clean and etch the surface and then use a bonding material to stick the veneers on your teeth.
You can either have your veneers placed using the direct technique or the indirect technique. With the direct method, your dentist will place them the same day of your visit. With the indirect technique, your dentist will take molds of your teeth to send to a laboratory, where they will create the shells. After your dentist gets them back in a few weeks, they’ll call you to set up an appointment to place them on your teeth.
