The Process of Getting Porcelain Veneers with Dr. Mingus: What to Expect

Are you looking to enhance your smile and improve the appearance of your teeth? If so, then porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Mingus is an expert in cosmetic and restorative dentistry and can help you achieve your smile goals. In this article, we’ll discuss the process of getting porcelain veneers with Dr. Mingus and what you can expect when you make the decision to invest in your smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are custom-made, wafer-thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. They are specially designed to mimic the natural look of your teeth and can be used to reshape, lengthen, and whiten your smile. Veneers are a durable and long-lasting solution for a variety of dental issues, including gaps, misaligned teeth, and other cosmetic imperfections.

Initial Consultation

The first step in the process of getting porcelain veneers with Dr. Mingus is an initial consultation. Dr. Mingus will take the time to assess your dental needs and discuss your options with you. He will ask about your desired result and answer any questions or concerns you may have. You can expect a thorough examination of your teeth and a discussion of the benefits and side effects of veneers. Dr. Mingus will also discuss the procedure, what to expect during the appointments, recovery time, and the cost of treatment.

Preparing Your Teeth

Once you’ve decided to proceed with the veneers treatment, the next step is to prepare your teeth. Dr. Mingus will numb the area and remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth with a dental drill. This is to make room for the veneers and ensure they look natural. After the enamel has been removed, impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent off to a dental laboratory where the veneers will be custom-made for you. You will be provided with temporary veneers while your permanent ones are being created.

The Fitting

Once the veneers have been created, it’s time to have them fitted. You will return to Dr. Mingus’s office for this appointment. Dr. Mingus will ensure that the veneers fit perfectly and match the color of your other teeth. He will use a special adhesive to bond the veneers to your teeth. After the veneers are in place, Dr. Mingus will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort and the perfect fit.


Once your veneers are in place, it is important to take care of them. Dr. Mingus will provide you with personalized instructions on how to care for your veneers. This may include brushing and flossing regularly, as well as avoiding certain foods and drinks that could damage your veneers. It’s also important to visit Dr. Mingus for regular check-ups and cleanings.
