What Are Porcelian Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a thin porcelain shell which are applied to the facial surface of the teeth to enhance their appearance. The procedure to apply veneers is painless and precise. In order to provide the best cosmetic results possible, the teeth are prepared by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel from the tooth surfaces. An impression is taken and temporary veneers are fabricated and applied to the teeth. A preciaion dental lab then creates the permanent porcelain veneers according to the aesthetic specifications desired for color, transparency and size. Once the permanent veneers are ready, they are applied to the prepared teeth with a permanent cement.
