What is a dental veneer?
Dental veneers are a thin porcelain covering which affixes to the surface of a tooth. On its own, a single veneer can restore a cracked or chipped tooth. However, multiple veneers on several teeth can work together to totally overhaul the smile, giving it a fresh and beautiful look. Veneers are customizable and a dental technician makes each one by hand, color-matching it to the existing surrounding teeth to ensure a seamless overall look.
How can a veneer help my smile?
Dentists use porcelain veneers to repair teeth in various situations:
- Slight misalignments
- Slight gaps

Considering porcelain dental veneers may seem like a big commitment, but the process takes only a few appointments with your dentist. First, your dentist will suggest a consultation to go over your expectations and find the best treatment plan for you. Then, your dentist prepares your teeth to receive the veneers and takes a clay mold of your mouth. A dental laboratory uses the mold to design each veneer to fit perfectly into your existing smile.
At a second appointment, which takes place after the dental laboratory has created each veneer. In the meantime, your dentist will place temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth. At your final appointment, your dentist removes the temporary restorations and replaces them with your final veneers.
