The procedure

Applying porcelain veneers onto teeth is a two-session procedure. During the first appointment, the dentist takes impressions of the targeted teeth as well as of the neighboring teeth to create an accurate reproduction of your teeth. X-rays may be taken to evaluate the teeth’s overall health. The dentist will also prep during this visit. The impressions, alongside the color and shape preferences, are then sent to a dental lab that produces the veneers. It usually takes between 1 to 2 weeks for the veneers to arrive at the dental office, but you will be contacted by the dentist for confirmation.

To securely attach the veneer to the tooth, the dentist needs to make room for it. A thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth’s surface. Modern veneers require a minimum of 3% tooth’s surface to be removed, but depending on the tooth’s condition (crooked, cracked, etc.) the dentist may remove up to 30% of the tooth’s surface. Once the teeth are perfectly trimmed, the veneers are applied using bonding cement so that you can provide feedback on the fit. Adjustments are made and when you feel comfortable with the way they feel on your teeth, the veneers are put in place. Special cement activated by a light beam is used for bonding.

In the end, the dentist makes final adjustments, removes additional cement, and provides you with information on post-procedure care and veneer maintenance. Future visits may be required to monitor the teeth and the veneers.

My family and I have been going to Arat Dental for over 7 years now, and there’s a reason why we still go! - the dentist is the best! She’s detailed, gentle and explains every step of the process while she’s performing a cleaning or procedure.

Ararat Dental has been our family dentist for over 10 years at both of the jersey City and North Bergen locations. Dr. Youssoufian has a wonder sweet and caring demeanor. The staff is always very nice and courteous and they are always able to accommodate you for any emergency visits you might have. She’s also very thorough and considerate. She’s isn’t the type of Dr. to preform any major, or risky procedures, unless absolutely necessary. This has saved me more than one tooth and a lot of money, where another Dr. might be eager to perform a root canal or oral surgery, etc. She and her staff are wonderful and I can’t recommend them enough.
