Veneers are very thin pieces of special dental porcelain that are custom made by a dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns on front teeth and the ideal solution in treating many cosmetic problems.
How are veneers placed?
Getting porcelain veneers requires two visits to complete the process. Depending on the type of veneers placed they may require little or no anesthesia during the procedure. If your case can be completed withLumineers the teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the very thin veneer. A set of impressions of the teeth and mouth are taken. A shade (color) and guide for the shape is chosen by you and the dentist. The impressions are then sent to a dental laboratory where the veneers are then made.
At the second visit the veneers will be bonded with very strong cement which is set using a special light. After the veneers are placed they will be polished and refined at the edges to ensure a perfect fit.
