Veneers are thin custom made tooth colored shells made of porcelain that cover the front teeth. They are primarily used to improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Your dentist prepares your tooth for a veneer and takes an impression of it. This impression is used to fabricate your custom veneer. Veneer processing can take up to 2-3 weeks. In the meantime, your dentist will make sure you have a temporary veneer until your permanent final veneer is ready to be cemented.
Veneers are placed to improve the appearance of discolored, crooked, spaced, chipped, and cavitated teeth.
