Dental veneers are thin custom made shells that cover the front surface of your tooth to improve their appearance. They are made of tooth colored materials and can be used to improve the color of teeth that have been worn down or stained. Alternatively, they can be used to improve the shape or size of the tooth.
When should you consider dental veneers?
You should talk to your dentist about dental veneers if:
- Your teeth are stained or discolored
- Your teeth are crooked or misshaped
- Your teeth have spaces between them
- Your teeth are broken or chipped
How its done
Two visits to your dentist are typically required for porcelain veneers. At the first visit, three important steps are completed. Firstly, the your teeth is prepared to be fitted with a veneer. Secondly, an impression is taken of your tooth which will be sent to a laboratory to prepare the veneer. You may receive a temporary veneer while the veneer is prepared at the laboratory.
At the second visit, the temporary veneer, if you received one, will be removed. Then, the new veneer received from the laboratory will be checked to see if it fits well. Once you and the dentist are satisfied with the look and feel of the veneer, it will be bonded to your tooth.
