A veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is bonded to a tooth to improve its color and shape. A veneer covers the front and top of a tooth, and can be used to close spaces between the teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or discoloured teeth. When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, veneers can protect them from damage and restore their original appearance.

How Do We Restore Teeth With Porcelain Veneers?
It can take two or more appointments to restore teeth with veneers. During the first appointment, we shape and roughen the teeth. We then take impressions of your teeth, which we use to make precise working models of your mouth. On these models we craft veneers to fit the prepared teeth.
During the second appointment, we clean and polish the prepared teeth. Then we use adhesive to bond the veneers to the teeth. A harmless, high-intensity light hardens the adhesive. Once in place, veneers virtually become part of your teeth. You can use them like you would your own teeth because the bond extremely strong. The final result is beautiful and natural-looking teeth.
It can take time for you get used to the appearance and feel of your new teeth. You won’t have to change the way you floss or brush, however. But you should not bite your nails, chew on pencils, ice, or hard objects, or put extreme pressure on you teeth.
