What is the cosmetic dentistry procedure for cosmetic dental veneers?
The cosmetic dentistry procedure starts with examination of your teeth that is done by our Provo dentists. After the examination by our Provo dentists and the positive results, our Provo dentists will remove some parts of the enamel from your tooth so the dental veneer looks natural when placed. After measuring the right fit and the perfect color, your tooth is cleaned, polished and etched. In the end our Provo dentists will glue the veneer with permanent cement and place a special light to make it hard.

Cosmetic dental veneers do not require special care. If you continue to follow good oral hygiene and have regular checkups at our Provo, UT dental office, they can last a long time.
