Veneers are pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Porcelain veneers are most commonly used when teeth have uneven surfaces, have been chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, or crooked or gapped. It’s an easy procedure that requires little or no anesthetics.
Porcelain veneers typically last longer than more whitening procedures and are stronger in protecting against stains from coffee, acidic foods, and food coloring. They are permanent, since part of your enamel will be removed to place them on your teeth.
During the first appointment, impressions will be taken and your teeth will be given a temporary covering. The impressions will be sent to a dental lab where they will be made, the process usually takes about 2-3 weeks. Once the office has the veneers, they will be bonded to your teeth with adhesive.
