Veneers are very thin pieces of strong, tooth shaped porcelain or composite resin material that are custom made by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of the teeth to reshape and create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth and have proven to be the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. On the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the teeth. This makes room for the veneers so that your teeth look natural. Then, a mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist. The mold or impression gets sent to the lab for processing, which normally takes about two weeks. On the second visit, the dentist places the veneers on the teeth to check the fit and shape. After any adjustments, the teeth are cleaned and the veneers are bonded to the tooth.
