Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells that recreate the natural look of the teeth. Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry alternative to composite resin for improving gaps, chips, stains, misalignments and worn tooth enamel. Veneers have strength and resilience comparable to enamel, and often the thin porcelain is the material of choice for changing the color, shape, size and length of the front teeth.
When getting porcelain veneers, a preliminary consultation is required for the evaluation of oral health. Unlike composite resin, which also fills gaps and chips or cracks, veneers are not for filling cavities. Porcelain veneers are a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure for aesthetics to improve the appearance and strength of the smile. As the procedure to bond the veneers to the front teeth take several hours, usually the procedure is spread out over 2-3 visits. The shells are made from impressions of the teeth. Sedatives and amenities are offered to help the procedure go more smoothly and comfortably.
