About Dental Veneers

Dental veneers also known as porcelain veneers are thin custom made shells, made of tooth colored material which is designed to cover the front surface of the teeth in order to improve the appearance of the teeth. The shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing the color, shape and size. Dental veneers are made from porcelain or resin composite material. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better imitate the reflecting light properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and need less removal of the tooth surface before the placement. Dental veneers are used for

  • Teeth which are discolored
  • Teeth that are worn
  • Teeth that is chipped or broken
  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregular shaped
  • Teeth with gaps

Dental Veneer Procedure

Dental veneer treatment can require up to 3 visits to the dentist. First visit is for a consultation which the dentist will examine the teeth and make sure that veneers are suitable. X-rays can be taken of the teeth and the dentist may make impressions of the mouth and teeth. In the second visit, the dentist will remove about ½ millimeter of the enamel from the tooth surface. Before trimming off the enamel, the dentist will decide whether there is a need for local anesthetic to numb the area. Then the dentist will make a model or impression of the teeth, which will then be sent out to a dental laboratory to construct the veneer. Lastly on the third visit to the dentist, the dental veneer will be permanently cemented to the tooth after the dentist has temporarily placed it on the tooth and examined its fit and color. Before the veneer is applied, the tooth will be cleaned, polished and etched. Special cement is applied to the veneer and then the veneer is placed on the tooth. Once the position is fixed the dentist will apply a special light beam to the dental veneer, which will activate the chemicals in the cement causing it to harden or cure quicker. The last step is for the dentist to remove any excess cement evaluating the bite and making final adjustments.
