If you are looking for a procedure that can restore the shape, color or size of your teeth you might want to consider veneers. This restorative procedure will give your teeth or tooth a better appearance through a procedure that is not too invasive and can achieve amazing results.
Veneers are thin shells made out of porcelain that are cemented onto your tooth and are customized to match the color and appearance of your other teeth to give your smile a better appearance. If you have any stains, you want to cover or reshape a tooth, fix cracks or chips or even mask any other imperfections, veneers are a great option.
It is a quick procedure that will take at least two visits to the dentist, but it is one of the least invasive procedures. On your first visit, your dentist will examine you and determine which teeth would be treated with veneers. A mold of your mouth is needed in order to custom create the veneers that will fit right onto the face of your tooth.
The mold is sent to the laboratory and once they are made, on your second visit your teeth will be prepped for treatment. Veneers range from 0.5 to 0.7 millimeters in thickness, so to not add more bulk; your teeth are shaved down. The enamel is shaved off with the use of a special tool so that the veneer will fit properly and not look or feel bulky. A bonding agent liquid is then brushed onto your tooth, which will completely cement the veneer onto your tooth.
