Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain facings and are a great way to transform your smile in a short time and with little work done on your teeth. They have a very lifelike appearance and are strong, won’t discolor or wear.
A dentist will first plan your new smile by determining what size, shape, and type of veneers will best complement your smile, face shape, and aesthetic desires. Next, he will carefully prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the veneer. He will then place temporary veneers to protect the teeth while the permanent version is crafted in a dental laboratory. This is the final step in your smile transformation, and you can leave the dentist’s office with a brand new, beautiful smile.
