What are dental veneers?
In just two or three dental visits, a porcelain veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Special thin laminates, called dental veneers, can often be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped, and sometimes misaligned teeth. Veneers may also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth.
Although veneers are made of porcelain and are very thin, they are very strong and can last many years because they are bonded to the tooth. An impression of the tooth must be made and a veneer molded by a lab technician. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible. The process involves buffing the tooth, removing a thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.
