What are Dental Porcelain Veneers?

A dental veneer is a thin layer of synthetic material (porcelain or composite) that is placed over the tooth’s surface to improve the tooth’s attractiveness in terms of alignment, color or shape. A substantial aesthetic effect can be obtained with a veneer and minimal tooth preparation is required. Even less preparation is required with Lumineers, a special type of super-thin veneer.

Traditional Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are applied to the teeth in 2 visits with the dentist:

Visit # 1: Veneer Preparation

The teeth are prepared by removing 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel (the thickness of a fingernail) to allow room for the veneer layer. An impression of the teeth is taken and sent to the specialized dental laboratory that will create the veneers.

Visit #2: Veneer Try-In & Bonding

The appearance and fit of the veneer is checked in your mouth to ensure that it meets with your approval.

Bonding involves all the steps that permanently attach the veneer to the tooth. After a cleaning of the tooth, the veneer is bonded to the teeth with a special dental cement. This cement is then hardened with a blue curing light.
