Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to your existing teeth. They cover your teeth and restore your beautiful smile.
The first step in the dental veneer procedure is tooth preparation. A tiny amount of the surface of the tooth is removed to allow space for the veneer. Then an impression of your teeth is made. This impression is what is used to create your veneers. A coating is placed on your teeth to minimize their sensitivity to air and cold.
Next comes the fitting. The appearance and fit of the porcelain is checked in your mouth to be sure that it will meet your esthetic and functional requirements. If there needs to be any adjustments made to the veneers, it is done at this time.
Finally, the veneers are bonded to your teeth. The end result is a durable, beautiful restoration that acts like it is a natural part of your teeth.
