Dental Veneers - Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over the outer surface of the tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect against past or future damage. The most popular types of veneers are porcelain, which usually could be stronger and more durable alternative to composite veneers. They are made by a dental technician and fitted by your dentist. Composite veneers are a quick non invasive alternative to porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are ideal for small changes in the appearance of the teeth and allows the dentist to preserve as much healthy tooth as possible.

Indirect veneers are made in 2 or more sessions and consist of first removing tooth substance with a bur, then taking impressions and sending them on to the dental technician for manufacturing.

Most veneer procedures require two appointments to complete, the first of which is dedicated to preparing and taking an impression of the teeth. After the tooth or teeth are prepared, an impression is taken, which, along with accompanying photos and models, is sent to the dental technician. The dental lab fabricates porcelain shells, which fit onto your teeth. These are called veneers. During your second appointment, the dentist will cement your veneers onto your teeth. Each veneer will be assessed for aesthetic before final cementation. If required, fine adjustments will be made prior to or immediately after final cementation.

On the second or third sitting the veneers could be cemented in place.

Indirect veneers could be made of ceramic or composite
