Veneers are a porcelain or ceramic cover for the visible portion of teeth to dramatically improve the aesthetics of your smile. Veneers usually require a couple dental visits. First the teeth are prepared and impressions are taken, and temporary covers are placed on the teeth. Using the impressions the custom veneers are precisely manufactured in a dental lab. The process takes about two weeks. When complete the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. Veneers require less tooth material removal and the procedure is more comfortable than crowns.
Veneers are applied by dentists with extensive cosmetic training and can also be used to correct gaps, chips, permanent stains, and teeth that are slightly crooked. Veneers are customized porcelain shells that will cover up the front of your teeth to improve the shape and color.
