The Cost of Dental Veneers in Lincoln, NE
Many patients would like to have a perfect smile, making dental veneers an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure. Whether you would like to have perfectly white teeth, to correct chips or cover misshapen or misaligned teeth, dental veneers could be the perfect cosmetic solution for you. Dental veneers are about the same thickness as a contact lens and cover the facial surfaces of teeth, masking any imperfections. Unlike a crown, a veneer only wraps around the front of the tooth instead of encasing the entire tooth. To place dental veneers, less tooth structure is removed before bonding, making veneers a more conservative option than full coverage crowns.
In this article, Dr. Kim Polley answers CAQs about dental veneers.

How do we place dental veneers? Dr.Kim Polley, Your Lincoln, NE Dentist Answers…
Veneers are usually a two-step process. After your initial cosmetic evaluation, we will prepare your teeth for veneers. At the beginning of this appointment, we’ll take an impression of your teeth. We’ll use this to fabricate your temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent veneers to be custom made in a lab. Once you are numb and comfortable, we will remove just enough tooth structure to allow the dental veneers to fit in naturally.
Once our cosmetic dentists reshape your teeth, we will take another impression. Then they will send this mold to our dental laboratory. Your permanent veneers will be made in the lab, which takes about two weeks. After two weeks, we’ll remove your temporary veneers and have your permanent veneers ready. Finally, we’ll bond them in place, and you’ll have a beautiful, new smile.
