Same Day Veneers

Teeth that are discolored, crooked, cracked, or gapped can keep you from displaying your smile with confidence. Same day veneers placed by a skilled cosmetic dentist provide an excellent option for transforming patients’ appearances. Traditional veneers created by lab technicians have been widely used for decades, but many dentists today offer same day veneers using CAD/CAM technology. For the right patients, same day treatment can provide a convenient alternative and instant results.

An Immediate Transformation

Advanced Technology for More Convenient Care

Same day veneers use CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) technologies, such as CEREC®, to design and produce dental veneers in just one office visit. These systems combine a small intraoral camera, 3-D imaging technology, specialized software, and an in-office milling machine. The precision of CAD/CAM technology streamlines the entire process, saving you time and money, while delivering incredibly natural-looking results.

Same day veneers provide patients who want to address a number of cosmetic imperfections the opportunity to achieve instant and gratifying results.

With this advanced technology, digital impressions are taken, eliminating the need for messy and uncomfortable tray and putty impressions. Once the images are captured, they are uploaded to a chairside computer. Using state-of-the-art software, the dentist will design each veneer to enhance the natural aesthetics of your smile, carefully selecting the appropriate shade and size. As you wait for the milling machine to fabricate your restorations, the dentist will prep your teeth, removing a small amount of enamel to ensure a realistic effect. Once the veneers are completed, they will be securely bonded in place.

Traditional Veneers vs. Same Day Veneers

Traditional veneers require at least two office visits and several weeks for fabrication at an off-site lab. Most patients will be provided with temporary veneers while they wait. In contrast, same day veneers offer:

  • More Convenient Treatment: With same-day service, the treatment is streamlined, reducing the amount of office visits.
  • Lower Treatment Cost: Same day restorations are often less expensive than traditional veneers. No temporary veneers are required and the entire treatment process is condensed, which can lower costs.
  • Greater Control: Since the veneers are fabricated in-office, adjustments can be made immediately. The porcelain used to fabricate the veneers can also be precisely shade-matched against the patient’s smile.

During your initial consultation, the dentist will determine your candidacy by performing a complete examination. They will take the time to listen to your cosmetic goals and create a treatment plan intended to meet those expectations, while guiding you through the same day veneers process.

How to Care for Same Day Veneers

Maintaining good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist every six months will help extend the longevity of your veneers. Maintenance tips include:

  • Avoid using your teeth to open packages
  • Do not bite your nails or chew on ice or other hard objects
  • Avoid smoking or using tobacco products

You should also minimize your consumption of deeply colored foods and drinks, such as red wine, coffee, tea, and dark berries. Although porcelain is stain-resistant, these items can darken the underlying teeth and dental cement.

Instantly Transform Your Smile

Same day veneers can offer lasting and beautiful results for 10 years or longer. It is important to choose a skilled and well-trained cosmetic dentist who can provide examples of past results. A consultation is necessary in order to learn more about your candidacy and whether same day veneers are right for you.
