What Is A Porcelain Veneer Procedure Like For Patients in Merced?
Dr. Propes encourages his patients in Merced and surrounding communities to take advantage to the time they have during consultation especially when getting porcelain veneers. This is the best time for the patient to voice out any concerns and apprehensions they may have regarding the procedure and provide information on the results that they want to achieve. This also helps Dr. Propes set realistic expectations on the dental procedure and if needed provide alternatives that would best fit what the patient wishes to achieve.
A patient in Merced is prepared for the porcelain veneer procedure by taking dental impressions and getting dental x-rays to evaluate the tooth condition. Dr. Propes will prepare the tooth by using an anesthetic to numb the area before removing a portion of the tooth enamel. An impression of the tooth will be taken and the model will be brought to our dental laboratory in Merced to fabricate your porcelain veneer. While the veneer is being fabricated, our patients will be provided temporary veneers to wear until they are called back in for the installation.
Once the porcelain veneer is ready, our patient will be called back in for another appointment with Dr. Propes in our office in Merced. After matching the color and the shape of the porcelain veneer, it will then be bonded into place using dental cement and will be hardened with the application of a special light. Once fitted securely into place, final adjustments will be made to make sure that we are able to achieve the results desired by our patients.
