Procedures > Veneers
Porcelain veneers, alternatively termed dental veneers or
dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin shells of porcelain
that are bonded onto the front side of teeth to create an
instant cosmetic improvement to the tooth's texture, color,
size and position. Porcelain veneers are routinely used
to make cosmetic changes for teeth that are discolored,
worn, chipped, or misaligned. Many are surprised to find
out that veneers can also be used to fix gaps between teeth.
Veneers are made of very thin porcelain which typically
can last 10-15 years or more.
Veneers can often be done in just two visits. The first
visit is the preparation of the tooth or teeth. An impression
is taken and the shade or color is chosen. The impression
is then sent to the dental lab. The final visit is after
the completed veneer is returned from the lab. The veneer
is then bonded directly to the prepared tooth leaving the
patient with a brand new smile.
