What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are also a cosmetic procedure used to mask dental flaws and improve the appearance of the smile. Instead of using a special resin, porcelain veneers are made of tooth-colored porcelain. Each veneer is a wafer-thin, tooth-shaped shell made from impressions taken of the teeth. Porcelain veneers generally require two dental appointments to complete treatment. The first appointment is used to prepare the teeth and make the impressions, which are generally sent to a dental lab where the veneers are made. Once the veneers are ready, a second appointment will be made to adhere the veneers to the teeth to reveal your beautiful new smile.
