My 2 Front Teeth Are Veneers. Will a Wax Up Be Made As a Temporary Veneer?

I do not know how to submit pictures on a computer. I was just wanting to know if a temporary acrylic veneer would be made for the one front tooth veneer that I broke?? Thank You

Yes a temporary should be made

The way I address this problem is to place a temporary bonding material on the tooth to cover the broken part of the veneer, then take an impression of it to use as a mold for the acrylic temporary veneer after the rest of the broken veneer is removed.  A wax up can also be done but that would take longer as the wax up is usually fabricated by the dental lab which can take a week or two to have ready.

Temporary veneer to fix a broken veneer

When it comes to the front teeth, is very important to have a wax up made to make your new beautiful temporaries. You will not walk around with a broken tooth, and everything is done in the chair. It is an easy procedure and painless, yor new porcelain veneers will look great ans so will your temporaries.
