Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Consultation and Treatment Plan

During your initial consultation, your San Diego dentist will discuss your dental goals and examine your teeth to determine if veneers are the best option for you. If you both agree that veneers are the right choice, Dr. Bayette will create a custom treatment plan that outlines the steps you need to take for the procedure.


Before bonding the veneers onto your teeth, Dr. Bayette will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth. This is to ensure that the veneers fit properly and look natural.

Impressions and Design

Once your teeth are prepared, your San Diego dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab. The lab will use these impressions to create your custom veneers. He will work with the lab to design your veneers to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.


Once your veneers are ready, he will bond them to your teeth using a special dental adhesive. The adhesive is cured with a light, which hardens the bond and strengthens it. After the veneers are bonded, he will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that they fit perfectly and look natural.

Maintaining Your Porcelain Veneers

To maintain your veneers, it’s important to follow these tips:

  • Brush and floss regularly to keep your veneers clean.
  • Avoid biting down on hard objects or using your veneers to open packages.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
  • Consider wearing a night guard if you grind or clench your teeth.
