Our Convenient Two-Visit Process
Visit #1 – Consultation
The first step is your personalized consultation at our Columbia practice. Our objective is to get to know you and your smile goals. We’ll complete a full dental exam to evaluate your bone, gums, teeth, and bite. Then we’ll discuss what you want to achieve with your cosmetic dentistry treatment and what you currently dislike about your smile. Using your unique specifications and our Digital Smile Design software, we’ll digitally design your new smile so you can see your future smile in real-time! We’ll help you discover the exact color, size, and shape you want your new teeth to be, ensuring you receive the smile you want. Before we send you home, we’ll prep your teeth for your future veneers by removing a small portion of the enamel. Then, we’ll take impressions, so your veneers are made to fit. You’ll return to our office in less than two weeks to have your final veneers attached and customized.
Visit #2 – Your New Smile
When your final veneers are custom-designed and ready, you’ll return to our office to have them placed and perfected. We’ll carefully evaluate how each veneer fits on your teeth and how it blends with adjacent veneers or natural teeth. We’ll then match the color and shape of each veneer to ensure your smile is well-balanced and looks natural. Once you’re satisfied with how your smile looks, we’ll bond each veneer to your teeth using dental cement and a curing light. With proper care, your veneers and your perfect smile will remain secured, functional, and looking beautiful for many years to come!
It’s time for your perfect smile.
