How Long Does Porcelain Veneers Treatment Take?

Porcelain Veneers (also known as a dental veneers) are a thin laminate of porcelain, custom made to bond to the front surface of a tooth.  Porcelain veneers or dental veneers can be used to hide unsightly teeth, whether they are dark, crooked, or ‘gappy’ teeth. These cosmetic dentistry procedures can all be done in the dental practice in Essex.  

Porcelain veneers or dental veneers are one of the best cosmetic dentistry treatments to cosmetically enhance unsightly teeth.  Porcelain veneers or dental veneers can change tooth colour, size, shape and contour, to give ‘perfect’ teeth.

Usually porcelain veneers or dental veneers can be done in just two to three visits in the dental practice in Essex. Hence porcelain veneers have been given the name ‘instant orthodontics’.   Although they require minimal preparation, preparation time varies depending on how many veneers you are having done.

After you have had a thorough examination by the cosmetic dentist and have been shown the different types of treatment that is suitable for you and have agreed a treatment plan, then the next stage is to have the teeth designed in the laboratory (this is known as a ‘wax up’).  This simulates how your new smile will look and also provides us with a guide for your temporary smile.

The next stage is to prepare the teeth and take impressions.  You are then fitted with temporary veneers (this is known as a ‘trial smile’).  The Ceramist Technician and Cosmetic Dentist work together to produce the smile you always dreamed of.

Porcelain veneers usually take two weeks to make in the laboratory.  The next stage is the fitting and this is when you see the full effect of the beautiful new smile that has been created for you.  To ensure your Porcelain Veneers have settled in and you are feeling comfortable we require you to return to the practice one last time. 

If you look after your veneers, i.e. have a good diet, good oral hygiene, regular dental checks and hygiene visits at the dental practice, veneers can be very successful and can last for years.
