What does getting Bioclear chairside veneers involve?
Getting Bioclear chairside veneers is usually completed in one visit and is the ideal treatment option for closing black triangle spaces in between the teeth. Little to no anesthetic is used and there is little to no drilling of the teeth. The doctor and you will select an appropriate shade (color) and the chairside veneers will be shaped and bonded to the teeth. Though this is typically a long appointment, it is usually completed in one visit.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting porcelain veneers usually requires two to three visits to complete the process and is much more involved than Bioclear chairside veneers. The teeth are prepared by shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
Prior to fabrication of the permanent veneers, the doctor will fabricate temporary veneers. The doctor will customize the shape and the size of the temporary veneers to your liking. The process of customizing the temporary veneers may take multiple appointments. Once you have approved the shape and size of the temporary veneers, a mold or impression of the temporary veneers will be taken so that the laboratory will customize your permanent porcelain veneers to your liking.
At the final visit, the permanent veneers will be bonded to your teeth.
