What exactly are veneers?
Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are custom-made to cover the front of the teeth in order to enhance their look by adjusting the colour, scale, form, and/or length. Porcelain veneers are clear of copper, stain-resistant, and have the same light-reflective qualities as real teeth.Do you want to learn more?

Discolored teeth, rubbed out, chipped, missing teeth, misaligned teeth, and teeth with holes will also be fixed with dental veneers.
What is the dental veneers procedure?
Dental veneers are usually finished in three visits to the dentist. The first visit is spent diagnosing and preparing care. The patient will describe the appearance they want to obtain, and the dentist will inspect their teeth and determine whether veneers are the best option. They will both address the procedure in detail, and any drawbacks.
The tooth/teeth will be prepared for the veneers at the next appointment. A half-millimetre of enamel would be removed from the tooth surface by the dentist. The dentist will then create a mould or impression of the tooth, which will be submitted to a dental laboratory, where the veneer will be created. In most cases, the dental laboratory procedure requires up to two weeks.
Bonding is the final step. The dentist will briefly apply the veneer to the teeth before permanently attaching it to check the colour and match. Finally, the veneer will be cemented to the teeth, and the dentist will assess your bite and make the possible changes.
What are some of the benefits of dental veneers?
Veneers provide the impression of real teeth, and porcelain is well tolerated by gum tissue.
Stain resistance is a feature of veneers.
Teeth that are dark in colour may look whiter.
Crowns need thorough forming, while veneers do not.
