Porcelain veneers are a beautiful option for creating the smile you’ve always wanted. Natural teeth that have spaces, are stained, crooked, misshaped or chipped, are some of the reasons veneers will be recommended. Veneers consist of very thin sheets of porcelain that are attached to the front of the teeth, improving shape, size and color.
On the first step of the process, the existing teeth are buffed and shaped and an impression is taken. The specific color that will be used is also chosen. On the second step, bonding adhesive will be used to attach the veneer to the teeth and a light beam will set the adhesive. No anesthetic should be needed, unless the patient is very sensitive. Veneers are durable, but care needs to be taken as far as chewing on things that may shift the veneers. Ongoing care is similar to that of natural teeth.
