What is a Veneer?
Porcelain veneers are thin layer of restorative materials that adhere to the front surfaces of your teeth. They help to correct issues such as cracks, chips, pits, uneven tooth edges, stains, gaps between teeth, and teeth that appear relatively too small to other teeth. It is very natural and very conservative because it removes very minimal tooth structure.
How is a veneer done?
It takes two appointments for the application of a veneer. During the first visit, a very small amount of your tooth will be removed from the tooth surface to allow space for the veneer. A Digital impression of the tooth will be taken and sent to the lab. While your permanent veneer is being made, a temporary veneer will be placed on the surface of the tooth. At the second visit, the temporary veneer will be removed and the permanent veneer will be placed to the tooth surface using a very strong bonding agent. The final steps involve removing any excess cement, checking your bite and making any final adjustment in the veneer as necessary.
