A professional dental laboratory creates veneers to fit over your existing teeth. These custom dental pieces are made of thin porcelain and designed to match the shape of your teeth. Then, a dentist bonds these to the front of your teeth to enhance the natural beauty of your smile.
Using veneers, a dentist can work with you to create a new look for your teeth. Veneers can serve as an alternative to a crown and can treat several dental issues while helping you look and feel your best.
Getting veneers is generally a painless and simple process. You’ll visit our office twice. The first time, we’ll prepare the surface of your teeth with gentle buffing. We’ll also shape the surface of your teeth to prepare for the added thickness the veneer creates. Finally, we’ll take impressions and work with you to choose an appropriate shade of color for your veneers.
When you return for your second visit, we’ll clean your teeth with a special liquid to ensure your veneers bond well. Then, we add bonding cement to your teeth, apply the veneers, and use a special curing light to harden the cement.
