Veeners are a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can address a wide range of issues. Here's why veneers are worth the cost if you're bothered by your smile.
Dental veneers are extremely thin and custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are made to cover the front surfaces of your teeth. The veneers are bonded to your teeth to change their size, shape, and/or color.
While veneers can be made from a resin composite material, most veneers are made from porcelain because it closely mimics the look and feel of natural teeth with the right light reflecting properties. Depending on your treatment goals, you can have veneers applied to one or many teeth at the same time.
Before the veneers are made, your dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a very small amount of enamel from the surface that's about equal to the thickness of the veneers. This is usually just 1/2 millimeter. An impression will be made of your teeth and this impression is sent to a lab to produce your custom veneers.
When the veneers arrive, your dentist will test the fit and trim the veneers as needed. Your teeth will be cleaned, polished and etched to create the perfect surface for bonding. A special dental cement is applied to the veneer before it's placed on your tooth and a UV light will be used to activate and cure the cement. Once placed, veneers offer a permanent solution to your cosmetic dental problems. What Veneers Can Treat
