Porcelain veneers are translucent, thin laminates specifically designed to improve the beauty of natural teeth and to correct crowding or spacing issues. The purpose of a veneer is to improve the color and shape of one or more of your teeth and brighten up your smile with a thin layer of porcelain that’s bonded to your tooth.
Veneers are the most popular method used to improve the look of a smile by dentist today.
Veneers have various uses such as whitening a stained tooth, closing the gap between two teeth or even lengthening smaller or misshapen teeth. Plus, if a tooth is chipped, veneers can protect them from further damage while restoring the natural look.
The Process of Veneers
It can take two or more appointments for veneers to be put into place. On the very first appointment, the teeth are shaped and roughened. At which point, from impressions, a detailed and accurate model is created of your teeth. The veneers are than manufactured of these models so that they fit perfectly to your teeth. The second appointment you teeth are cleaned up and prepared. Using an adhesive, the veneers are than bonded to your teeth. Using a high intensity light, the adhesive hardens and makes the veneers virtually become part of your teeth.
