WHAT ARE THE STAGES OF A PORCELAIN VENEER TREATMENT?
Appointment 1: Defining Your Smile Goals
The first step in the process is an information-gathering appointment. During this appointment you and Dr. Pasha will discuss your concerns, goals, and overall vision for your smile. Clear communication helps ensure that Dr. Pasha develops a treatment plan to achieve your desired smile results.
Appointment 2: Information Collection and Compilation
With your goals defined, Dr. Pasha’s team collects videos, photos, models, and scans of your teeth, as well as measurements of your facial features. In many cases, Dr. Pasha’s approach may include consultations with other dental professionals. Understanding your current smile is what helps Dr. Pasha achieve your smile goals.
Appointment 3: Presentation of Treatment Options
Once your smile treatment plan is created, Dr. Pasha gives an in person presentation addressing options and alternative approaches. A preliminary design of your new smile is included, and you may be able to try a mockup to better visualize the final result. Once the treatment is agreed upon, you will schedule an impression appointment.
Appointment 4: Impressions and Temporary Test Drive
Your impression appointment may include minor preparations of your teeth. A scan or impression may be made for the ceramist to fabricate the veneers. At the end of this appointment, you will have a set of temporary veneers that will closely resemble the shape and contours of the final product. Temporary veneers allow you to test drive the final smile design before fabrication.
Appointment 5: Feedback Follow Up
A short follow up appointment allows you to communicate any minor changes desired. This appointment lets us visualize the final restorations and take photographs for the final design and technical adjustments. Once the temporary restorations are approved, we will send an imprint of them to the ceramist to duplicate the shape of the teeth in the final restorations.
Appointment 6: Final Fit, Shape, and Colour Review
A try-in appointment is scheduled in order to check the fit, shape, and colour of your final restorations. Once we receive your final approval, Dr. Pasha permanently cements the teeth either in the same scheduled appointment or at another pre scheduled appointment at your convenience.
