Emax Veneers Procedure

The patient is discharged by inserting temporary veneers.
Within 4 to 5 days, the patient is called for permanent veneers. At this stage, the patient’s temporary veneers are removed, and the last measurements are made again. These measurements are sent to the laboratory to produce permanent veneers using CAD-CAM technology.
Wearing Permanent Veneers
The dentist makes the final corrections on the veneers, adhering them to the tooth surface and polishing the teeth by removing the bonding material residues.
