Veneers are a virtually instant method of transforming your smile and are often the treatment of choice for celebrity smile makeovers. They are ultra thin ceramic shells that are individually crafted for each tooth and bonded to their front surface to become a part of your natural tooth. Veneers are often used to change the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth to create a perfect smile that you can be proud of.
There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite and porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers or dental porcelain laminates, have revolutionized cosmetic dentistry. These very thin shells of porcelain, which are bonded onto the front side of your teeth, are a great cosmetic dentistry solution for teeth that are chipped, stained, or slightly misaligned.
An impression of the tooth must be made and a veneer molded by a lab technician. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible. The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.
