Consultation and Planning
During your initial consultation, Dr. Kim will discuss your aesthetic goals and examine your oral health to ensure composite veneers are the right choice for you. He'll take into account your facial features, skin tone, and natural tooth shape to design veneers that will enhance your smile while looking completely natural.
To prepare your tooth for the veneer, Dr. Kim will lightly etch the surface of your tooth to create a strong bonding surface. This step is essential to ensure the composite material adheres securely to your tooth, providing a long-lasting result.
Application and Shaping
Dr. Kim will then apply the composite resin material directly to your tooth, meticulously shaping it to achieve the desired look. He will carefully sculpt and polish the veneer, ensuring it blends seamlessly with your surrounding teeth for a natural, radiant smile.
