What are Veneers?
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
What To Expect During a VENEER Procedure
- Your dentist will remove a small amount of the tooth surface to permit placement of the veneer.
- An impression is taken of the tooth and sent to the dental laboratory.
- The dental veneer is then made to fit the tooth and mouth.
- The veneer is bonded to the tooth with resin cement.
