Dental Veneers are custom made porcelain shells to cover the front of teeth. This allows your teeth to be aesthetically pleasing and give yourself a new white smile. Veneers provide you with the options of changing the shape, length, color, or size.
Veneers can be made from porcelain or a white resin material although porcelain tends to mimic the color and light reflection on teeth more accurately. People often use teeth Veneers to cover up chipped, worn down or discolored teeth or gaps in between teeth.
The process of receiving Dental Veneers normally takes three visits to your dentist.
During the first visit, you will explain to your dentist the appearance you want to achieve from having dental veneers placed on your teeth. The dentist will examine your teeth and possibly take x-rays or make a mold of your teeth. The dentist will explain the best course of action for receiving veneers.
The next two visits will be reshaping your tooth to best fit the veneer and mold it onto your tooth. The Veneer itself will be developed in a dental laboratory.
