Dental veneers are used to cover the surfaces of teeth to enhance their appearance.
What are Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a thin shell made of porcelain or plastic resin material which is used to cover the surfaces of teeth. In order to create room for the veneer a small amount of tooth structure must first be removed. Two appointments are generally required. During the first appointment the teeth are prepared, molds are made, and the color for the veneers is chosen. Temporary veneers may also be made at this appointment.
Once the veneers have been fabricated in our dental lab they are ready for bonding onto the prepared tooth surfaces. Veneers are an excellent restoration that can change the appearance of the teeth and give you a beautiful and natural smile.
