What Are Temporary Veneers and Why Do You Need Them?

As you probably know, loss of enamel can cause sensitivity and chipping. Veneers can provide a layer of protection for the teeth and improve your overall smile! The placement of veneers can correct the position, shape, and color of the teeth. It is a great dental treatment with many benefits. But why are temporary veneers being important? Have you ever wondered what your smile could look and feel like?

Temporary veneers (also known as a trial smile) are one of the steps to creating your new smile. Before placing final veneers, you must test drive their new smile with temporary veneers. You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it so why should you with your smile?

Temporary veneers are attached only slightly to the underlying tooth so they can be removed easily. The teeth are designed on a model and placed in the mouth as temporary veneers. They serve you for a short time while your permanent veneers are being made. This phase of the treatment allows the patient to try the new smile out and ensure that all the dimensions are correct before proceeding with the placement of the final veneers. The process helps ensure the perfect look and color match to fit your needs. You will wear these custom-made temporaries for 2 weeks to see if you like the shape, length, and color. Any changes can be altered and enhanced for the permanent veneers.
