Giving Someone a Smile with Whiter, Brighter and Beautifully Shaped Teeth
Veneers are used to cover the front surface of a tooth only. The amount of tooth structure that is taken away to make room for a veneer is very small. The veneer itself is a very thin porcelain that is permanently cemented onto the prepared surface of the tooth. This is a conservative way of giving someone a smile with whiter, brighter and beautifully shaped teeth. Veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth and to make teeth appear straighter. Sometimes people have discoloured or cracked teeth that make them look unaesthetic. Veneer solve this problem by giving the teeth an ideal appearance based on the custom fabrication of the lab technician.
The procedure for veneers is very similar to crowns and bridges but requires much less removal of tooth structure. The teeth are lightly prepared, often requiring little to no anesthesia, and an accurate impression is taken of the teeth. The impression is sent to the lab and the technician makes the teeth to the dentist's specifications including shape and colour. Often no temporary veneers are made because the teeth are very lightly prepared beforehand.
