There are two processes to place veneers. Digital impressions using a CAD/CAM machine allows us to mill the veneers in house and deliver the
veneer(s) the same day. The second option is taking an impression with impression material and sending it to a laboratory or in some instances we can still take a digital impression and send it electronically to the lab. The option Dr. Gilmore chooses is based upon the complexity and individuality of the case.
The veneer option, though a choice that involves minimal preparation (verses a crown), may not always be the best choice. Harmful habits such as grinding your teeth, chewing ice, and so on, can cause fractures or chips due to the thin nature of the veneers. Dr. Gilmore is happy to discuss all
the options and risks for your particular case.
