What is a veneer?

Dental veneers ,sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers can improve the color, shape and position of the teeth. And, a precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right color to improve a single discolored tooth or to lighten your front teeth. A veneer can make a chipped tooth look whole again! Furthermore, veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. Because, they are very thin and are held in place by a special, strong adhesive, very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Some types of veneers don’t need any preparation at all.



in preparing the teeth for veneers, a small amount of the outer enamel surface of the tooth may be removed, to make sure that the veneer can be bonded permanently in place later.
To avoid discomfort, a local anesthetic may be used. However, often this is not needed. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dental team will take an impression of teeth. And, this will be given to the dental technician, along with any other information needed to make the veneer.
Why  Veneers, Smile Enhancements, Cosmetic dentistry,?
The colour of the surrounding teeth is matched on a shade guide to make sure that the veneer will look entirely natural.
A veneer takes at least two visits.  And, your dentist will show you the veneer on your tooth to make sure you are happy with it. Bonding a veneer in place is done with a special adhesive, which holds it firmly on the tooth. Because the preparation of the tooth is very minimal, you will probably not need a temporary veneer. The tooth will look very much the same after preparation, but will feel slightly less smooth.

How long will a veneer last?

Veneers should last for many years; but they can chip or break, just like your own teeth can. Your dental team will tell you how long each veneer should last. Small chips can be repaired, or a new veneer fitted if necessary.
