Dental veneers are thin, porcelain coverings that are placed on the front side of your teeth. They are a cosmetic option for correcting teeth that are discolored, chipped, or crooked.
Porcelain Veneer Process
Preparing your teeth to receive veneers is a simple process; first, a thin layer of enamel is removed from your teeth to accommodate space for the veneers. Then a series of impressions and models will be made of your teeth that will be sent to a dental lab in order for the technicians to create a customized set of veneers for you. Once your teeth have been fitted with the new veneers, it’s important that you continue to practice healthy dental hygiene practices and habits, including brushing twice a day and flossing daily. This is because your teeth will be experiencing sensitivity and be more vulnerable to decay after the removal of some enamel.
