Improve the appearance of your smile with Dental Veneers

Veneers

What are they?

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite material that are permanently placed over top of the teeth. Veneers are ideal for patients who have misalignment or gaps between anterior teeth and who would like to enhance the appearance of these teeth to enrich their smile.

Veneers may be more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, but more economical than crowns.

How is it done
  1. The dentist will remove a small portion of enamel from the tooth/teeth that will be receiving the veneer(s).
  2. Next, precise digital impressions of the prepared tooth/teeth will be taken using iTeroTM digital scanning technology, which will be sent immediately to a dental laboratory to manufacture the veneer(s).
  3. During the time that the veneer(s) are being manufactured (typically one to two weeks), the dentist will fit your prepared teeth with temporary veneers.
  4. At your final appointment, the temporary veneer(s) will be removed and the permanent veneer(s) will be cemented into place. The dentist will ensure that you are completely satisfied with the comfort and appearance of the veneer(s).
