Dental veneers are used to cosmetically enhance the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are very thin, porcelain or resin shells that are customized for a desirable color and shape.
They are bonded to the surface of the teeth to reshape broken, misshapen or irregular teeth.
They also provide a solution for discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments.
A veneer is a paper thin, custom made covering that conceals the front surface of your tooth. Veneers are made of a very durable ceramic material that actually can strengthen your tooth. They can correct stains, breaks, odd shapes, and lengthen individual teeth without removing them.
The first appointment involves you and your dentist planning and choosing the best shape and colour for your venners to blend in with your natural teeth. The surface of the teeth are prepared very gently before the impression is taken and then temporary veneers are applied to protect the prepared tooth between visits. Your next appointment, in approximately 2 weeks, will be to permanently cement the veneer in place.
