How are temporary veneers applied?
First, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel, so that the temporary veneers can fit snugly. Next, they will take impressions of your teeth and send them to a dental lab, where the temporary veneers will be created based on the impressions.
Once the temporary veneers are ready, your dentist will carefully cement them onto your teeth. The cementing process is typically quick and painless, but your dentist will go slowly and carefully to ensure a comfortable and successful procedure.
