“How long does the ceramic dental veneer therapy take?” and the general duration of all dental therapies are the most common questions from our patients. That’s why we’ve decided to dedicate a series of blogs to the topic of procedure durations in dental therapies.
We start with the question of how long the process of placing ceramic dental veneers takes.
Ceramic dental veneers are a fast, simple, and minimally invasive prosthetic treatment in dentistry designed to achieve a high aesthetic of the smile.
When we say that ceramic dental veneers fall into the category of fast dental treatment, we mean that realistically, it requires 3 to 4 visits to the dentist, and the therapy itself is divided into 4 phases and can be completed within 7 to 10 days.
If you are a patient coming from abroad, ceramic dental veneer therapy will require a one time visit with a duration of 7 days!
Below, find out the exact protocol for ceramic dental veneer therapy at Dental Center 4Smile.
PHASE – Tooth preparation and taking impressions
After your initial examination and arranging your ceramic dental veneer therapy at Dental Center 4Smile, you come to complete your first phase of therapy.
The first phase of therapy can mostly be done in a single visit to dentist Ivan Antolković.
In the first phase of therapy, we perform minimal tooth preparation (minimal grinding of the tooth surface).
After tooth preparation, the doctor takes impressions that are sent to the dental laboratory for processing.
Before leaving the dental office, the patient receives temporary veneers that serve to protect the tooth surface.
The second phase consists of a short visit to the dentist to try the base of ceramic veneers and confirm that the veneers fit well on the teeth. This phase is the foundation for making the dental veneers.
Between the second and third phases, 3 to 4 days may pass, depending on how much time the dental technicians need to prepare the first version of your ceramic dental veneers.
Patients often want to get their new smile as soon as possible, but they must be aware that creating quality and aesthetically appealing veneers takes time and dedication from dental technicians.
In the third phase, functional and aesthetic trials of the ceramic veneers are performed.
Usually, one trial, i.e., one visit, is sufficient.
It may also be necessary to have a few more trials depending on how satisfied you and the doctor are with the appearance and function of the ceramic dental veneers.
Sometimes it’s better to have one more trial than one less. Dentist Ivan Antolković wants to be completely sure that the shape, size, and color of the veneers are tailored to your desires.
Appointments for trying the ceramic dental veneers last no longer than about 20 minutes.
The final phase of ceramic dental veneer therapy is the definitive cementing of the veneers. Before cementing, it’s important that you are completely satisfied with your new smile.
You will try the veneers once more, sign the consent for cementing, and go home with your new Hollywood smile.
We are aware that today’s pace of life is accelerated, and it’s difficult to find and allocate time, so we will plan your therapy in advance and arrange appointments that suit you. The only thing required is that you accept in advance the fact that there are time protocols that must be respected for the quality and durability of the work.”
