Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that attach to the front of teeth to improve the overall appearance of teeth that are worn, chipped, misaligned, stained or otherwise discolored. Porcelain veneers are basically very thin “false fronts” for your teeth. They are custom created based on a mold of your mouth and teeth, then they are attached to your teeth using a high-strength dental bonding agent. The new porcelain veneer will look quite natural and white. Porcelain veneers are very strong, and they are very adept at resisting staining.
The procedure generally is done in two visits: the first to lightly prepare the teeth and make the impressions; and the second to apply the custom created veneers. A third visit is also usually scheduled a week after the procedure to evaluate the placement, perform minor adjustments and answer any questions you may have. Our on-site laboratory technicians help customize each and every case, thus achieving the most esthetic and natural outcome.
